all i did was make the gun shot and the tau brains splattering(even though you can hardly see it) so without further ado here it is

Nice attempt, but the bolt of las fire isn't that good. I take it you've still got the original, try putting the las fire on a different layer and try putting different layer effects onto the lasbolt. The external glow might good quite good actually.

Thats the thing with drawing packages, reading the manual is all well and good, but unless you mess around with stuff, see what happens if you do this, that or the other, you won't really learn anything. The manual can tell you how to do stuff, but you won't know what all the options do until you try them out.

That is indeed the case. I started using Photoshop 7 about two years ago and didn't consider myself "functional" in it until about 8 - 10 months ago. I have plenty of Photoshop books, but where I really learned things was by doing it, not reading about it.

I haven't read any of them. ;D I just play around (and ask college lecturers ) with the program. I learnt Layer Masking etc pretty soon after staring. I wouldn't say I've mastered it....not by a long way, but I can still do some pretty neat stuff with it. shame I don't have it at home. :

I LOVE photoshop. Been using it since version 3. Still don't know all the details, but i can do anything with it that I can imagine. Post the pic without the changes and let all of us have a try. ;D
