Well, first Ive seen of the thread...read from start... minus the 77 empty posts..
Interesting...transitioning right into facepalm.
One thing I can offer regarding graphics of any nature, and not casting any stones, cos I dont know either way what went down.. BUT.. my No 1 tip, is ALWAYS ALWAYS.. make ur own graphics, even if its a mockup.. even if you completely suck, the more of ur own work that you do, the better you will be.
There are no shortcuts if you want to 'master' your trade.
Oh well, back to work, peace out kind folks..
