I challenge you to a Steel Cage Match!
I figured I'll give this a try, never really done this before and am amazed by the stuff you guys make....
So what better way to start to challenge someone who seems to have won this multiple times. I might not win but I like to use this match more as a way to learn how this works.
I like you to post the first blow (because I don't really know how to) :P

I Accept your challenge, but you will have to post the first blow!
Okay then let's bring it on I don't usually battle random people but this may bring some unexpected results I usually like to work with a theme when doing a battle, have you got any ideas in mind?

Sorry I didn't read the bit about me posting the first blow, I have just accepted the battle but you will need to post the first blow. It's quite simple really, you just create a composite and then keep all of the layers separate and then I will rework it when it is my turn. The document size needs to be 800 pixel by 600 pixels at 72dpi

Ok, I'll go give it a try
Looks like I have 3 days, is that correct?
Also I'll see if I can think of a theme

My they say it's better to try and fail than not try at all yes you have three days, also don't forget the time difference with the countries. Where are you? I am in England. I recommend starting it as soon as possible though as it's always good to give your eyes a rest and check the work the day after to see if you can think of any other elements and changes that need doing. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

first up welcome to the cage Michiel from your first design I can already tell this battle is going to be a cracker... I look forward to watching it unfold

Great start my friend how did I know I was going to talk you into using animals the PSD document looks good, the only suggestion would be to try and rename the layers as it would make it easier for us both to find exactly what elements we need to work with now let me see what I can do.....

Very Nice MGJdeWit. What Ryan wil do now I can almost see !

Thanks everyone, yeah I'll try to rename the layers next time.
I never had any lessons in photoshop, just kinda learnd stuff from playing with it, so I'm sure there are a lot of things I don't do the standart way

Good stuff mate, I find the best way to learn things in PS is to experiment, also I have found I have learnt loads of new techniques doing battles in the cage
Posted Wed Apr 10, 2013 3:35PM
wow nice job. I like how you still kinda kept the same setup as I had but still completely changed it at the same time. Now its time to look at your photoshop file and learn :P
Posted Wed Apr 10, 2013 4:25PM
Cheers mate, you do get more points in the judging for keeping some elements in the exact same position as the previous design. Looking forward to seeing your next design
