    So I've been working with Photoshop for a couple months now and decided that instead of doing something productive with my free time (heaven forbid) I'd work on a Sith Tribute using the Photoshop tools available to me.

Made the text, the fog effects, darkened and modified some images, and made the lightsabers/glows where it was needed. This whole thing took around a month. Hope you like it. I certainly do.

  • The Appeal of Video Games

    Alright. Here I am, writing my first Gameinformer blog post. I've seen the other blogs, very impressive, so I'm led to believe the standards are unbelievably high. Yikes. It feels like singing a solo in front of an audience of 100 when I was a... More
  • Why I'm losing faith in Nintendo
