    Lets start out with my lineage of avatars! ( Some of them are VERY similiar, catered to the specific use)


    AH my first avatar, ever. I was 12 years old when I designed this one.... Back in 1998.

    And now my most recent, which I made today, I'll probably still tweak it a bit.

    Now this is for various games i've played over the years:

    Now here's a couple of things I've done for work... We have really advanced stuff at work... It's for vehicle wraps.

    Here's a digital rendering:

    That truck makes me happy. The design is kinda distracting, but I'm sure that is what you were going for. You should have put the website somewhere else, though... that is a prime mud location!

    You ever enter Photoshop competitions on Worth1000 Home You should look at it, it's a great way to really hone your talents, and there's plenty of variety for the contests. Good fun!

    i dont think im that good.... people on there are nuts. the only reason i get paid for it is i have other talents to tie into it, and i can run an office pretty easily. im good with the customers etc. some of these 'artists' are exceptional good, but they have this mentality that all they need to do is draw, and a major chip on thier shoulder when asked to do anything else. and before peopl get all riled up, this always isnt the case, but it seems most of my peers feel this way. they study one thing and thats all they should have to do. .

    Yeah, I've been using PS for about 14 years...god damn that seems like so long ago :(

    Keep practicing, the more you use it the better you get.

    Yeah, they are, but that's how you learn, you go head-to-head against them, and people will critique your work so you know where to improve. And the majority of the people on there are nice about it, so you don't need to worry about being torn to shreds, unless your entry is completely awful! And looking at your stuff, you would do fine. I never got a top 3 with a PS entry, but I did steadily improve the more I entered, and it was good fun, you really should try it out. Best finish was 11/36 ( Ice Plant: http://rookery2.worth1000.com/storagev12/794500/794766_c45e_1024x2000.jpg ), and I've gotten several Stars. I'm on there as SubieDriver, so if you join, I'm sure there's some way to look at my portfolio. Did much better in the photography contests, best was a 3rd, and that was with a 5MP point-and-shoot Canon digital camera, probably pissed off a few people who finished lower with more expensive cameras!

    not bad IOWA, as a Graphic Designer I'd say you've definitely got talent.
    Just one question, you live Chicago, why the IOWA username?

    The name IOWA is derived from one of my favorite bands, Slipknot.
