Never mind, I can't read forum posts properly.
There are 10 types of people in the world: those that know binary, those that don't, and those that didn't expect this joke to be in base 3.

Just a copy of the sig he is referring to:
Image

I have reviewed the .PSD for that sig, wow I was playing around for about 10-20 layers before I knew where I was going with it.

Anyway, the flowy stuff is a combination och regular brushing, smudging, Liquify filter and c4d's. I've done a bit of dodge/burn on Chewie in order to get the lighting/shades consistent. The purple colour was created by adding a color adjustment layer over certain parts of the sig. The flamey effect is done with regular brushing+smudging and then setting the layer settings to Linear Dodge (Add). Some of it is done with parts of a c4d as well.

I'll send the .PSD for you to look at, Xeno.

I was just about to post a reply saying that it's probably a lot of layers using things like smoke and brushes etc. glad I was partially right :P I found this video that may still help as a visual aid.

Okay, vector graphics can be done in another program called Adobe Illustrator, you could always search for Illustrator tutorials. On the other hand, vector graphics can also be made in Photoshop, but I'm not sure if it is as easy.

Do you have any examples of what you would like to create? Such as vectorizing a photo of yourself, creating a scalable logo or just random shapes?

Talking about vector work I'm just on a break from my usual "my internet's gone so let's do ART" session.

Here's my work in progress:


Image



It's based on my signature but huge (2000 x somthing pixels) and with a lot more detail. It's all vectors,
the only raster may be the drop shadows but that depends on how Illustrator creates them.
It's shaded using the mesh tool and editing the brightness of each point within the mesh.
