    Default 04 >> Group 8: The Techniques - Best Use of Textures/Brushes

    BEST USE OF TEXTURES/BRUSHES

    Well this officially marks the start of the Techniques categories! We have 7 techniques to get through over the night - and if you're any kind of maths whizz then you may have noticed 28 categories divides nice and evenly by 7 so they are all spaced apart with 3 other categories in between, which means you're never far off another technique!!!

    Kick starting the night's techniques are the brushes and textures! With so many fab textures and brushes being created constantly there seems to be an endless supply out there (BrinneyDee was creating them like wildfire for a while, anyone else notice this??) but it's not just about getting your hands on a texture that looks good, it's about using it to compliment your art and finding the right brushes to add to the composition or style of your piece. That's what this award is all about, celebrating those artists who used this skill to benefit their wallpapers...

    So, we had 48 pieces nominated in this category; 5 of those not eligible for awards brining us down to 43, so we just have 20 awards to present just now, 15 placements and 5 runners up..... let's get our techniques show on the road shall we!

    .......

    I have to say these are awards are very creative! when I did mine I was really unsure what to do, but these other awards are so cool Love Zugma's Runners up ones, and sayjay the textures used on the text gives it a really cool 'feel' << see what I did there

    but I have to say I just love the creativity of these awards! well done to everyone who won one

    Every time I think the awards can't get more beautiful, I'm wrong!

    Jen, Ladymanson & Jennilou were my own top 3 - the more I looked, the more I saw!

    Congrats, everyone!

    My top 3 (i think) were Zugma, Xinyi and Ehlwyen but damn there were so many awesome pieces to choose from!!!

    I adore WiccaJaz's award, it's just so beautiful! although come to think of it, I may have been supposed to save that as a .gif... hmm.... I'll fix it post-ceremony!
