Well, I was playing with some photoshop, and came up with a pretty cool picture.


01-28-2005, 07:47 PM

01-28-2005, 07:53 PM
No, desert land.. Cracked Ground...

01-28-2005, 11:08 PM

I have been playing with some tools with Photoshop. Here is another one that I did. It's not as good as the first one. I don't know this girl, just one that I grabbed from the 'net.

I can't use Photoshop worth crap. It's so damn confusing, but I did sign up for a computer art class, so that should help...

Anyway, nice work. It looks really good.

Nice work.
Since I was in 3rd grade before I learned how to tie my shoes and 16 before I learned how to not drown(that's called "Swimming", sort of..) and recently I just learned how to wipe my butt,(It's all "In-the-wrist") I won't be showing any "puter" artwork, no sir! I haven't got that much time left to figure something like that out!
Nice work.

Here is the poster image I'm working up for Mira Mesa Monster Manor.

John and Scaremaster,

Awesome work! I need to learn more about photoshop myself. I'll have to add that to my 2005 "To Do" list. :)


01-30-2005, 09:10 PM
Thanks. I've been using PhotoShop since its inception. Before I started my new business I was making a living as a graphic artist. So there's a lot of experience behind my artwork. Learn to use the layers, masks and filters and there's no limit to what you can do.

01-30-2005, 11:00 PM
thanks for the advice. My big mistake is that i tried doing everything in one layer instead of different layers... If ya got any more tips you can share without taking away from your business please do share. :twisted:

Hi Scaremaster....I LOVE that picture!! I have PhotoShop 7.0 and use it mostly for photo editing. I can't find that texture you used for your pic. I don't see anything called Desert Land or Cracked Ground. Do you have a different version of PhotoShop?


02-01-2005, 01:07 PM
Actually I used a picture for the texture. It was a picture of some cracked ground. PM me, and I can e mail it to you. I am using Photoshop 7

I think theres need to be a "Haunters Guide to Photoshop"... I think it would a good read. -Nightgore

Maybe a good haunt seminar topic???


02-01-2005, 04:48 PM
If I were headed up to the Show earlier, I would be happy to give a seminar.

Hmmmm.. Maybe I will make a website if there is enough interest in it.


I purchased the domain a long time ago planning to do some development work. Maybe I can change it into something else....

well since were showing posters here is one im working on.

02-01-2005, 05:27 PM
I would suggest that you make your shadowman a little more transparent. Also add a little perspective to the building to create a sense of movement. You might think about using liquify to stretch his arms.

02-01-2005, 05:31 PM
and the house is the logo, i didnt want it to be too much for simplicity when doing printing and other means of printing

02-01-2005, 05:52 PM
your doing a great job with it. I can;t wait to see what else you come up with for me for my other products... :twisted:

Cool Glenn! Keep us posted.


Steve, thanks for the awesome book cover design! I can't wait to get the book finished and into print. I'm still hoping to have finished writing it by the end of this month and then I hope to have it published soon thereafter. You do awesome work. Thanks!


02-09-2005, 03:13 PM
hey what's up everyone? haven't been on here in a while. how do you post a pic with your reply? I was going to put a conceptual pic I was working on.

02-09-2005, 03:40 PM
the image must have a current place on the web then you type:
your URL here

Put the address to the images in the YOUR URL HERE space.

02-09-2005, 04:21 PM
I've tried and tried to learn PS. I finally just gave up. Not my forte.

02-10-2005, 11:49 PM
One of the ways that I have learned to use photoshop is by doing tutorials on special effects. Not only do you leaarn how to do a neat effect, but you also tend to learn some nifty trick and how the tools interact with each other which will help to expand your knowledge.

If you are looking for good tutorials I reccommend the following 3 sites:


I particularly like The Web Machine. I will say this though, many of these sites tend to concentrate on techno, industrial, and futuristic looking effects. But once you start to understand the why and how these things work you should be able to apply them to other effects.

02-11-2005, 06:49 AM
Thanks for the links, this is a big help for me... trying to learn PS!! -Nightgore

02-11-2005, 01:55 PM
Can you not buy PS7.0 anymore ... do you need Photoshop CS??

Playing with some of the websites panicbutton listed I might be able to figure this out :) I doubt I'll be as good as you all, but I like to be able to play :roll:

02-11-2005, 02:48 PM
nice photochopping guys

02-12-2005, 12:22 AM
I have been playing with some tools with Photoshop. Here is another one that I did. It's not as good as the first one. I don't know this girl, just one that I grabbed from the 'net.


Uhh Scaremaster, that "girl" you grabbed from the net has a striking resemblance to my ex-wife Pamela just before she got her "woman time".

You know her "."

02-15-2005, 04:07 PM
Here is something i created in photoshop last night. I just recently got photoshop and have been playing around with it.


02-15-2005, 06:25 PM
Looks good, specially for a stsrt! hell, i remember when i began... i could draw a line.

anyway. Heres a new image im working on.

02-15-2005, 09:14 PM
Thats pretty sweet. Nice work i have to add. I wish i knew how to get that glass cracked look i think its awsome.

02-15-2005, 10:53 PM
So who's that scrawny kid you keep using as a model? :lol:

02-16-2005, 06:35 AM
This has to be my favorite creation yet.


02-16-2005, 06:54 AM
actually john, for once... I didnt use myself. :D
and Corn, did you make that?

02-16-2005, 09:34 PM
Yes steve i did make that. But the image that i used of the zombie came from a picture i found on the internet.
