    I really wanna know how Tes made the stripes behind the guy. I think that looks really cool. Is there a name for the method? can someone give me a link to a tutorial?

    I have Photoshop and Illustrator CS4.

    All you need for the background is the Pen Tool and duplicate the stripe you make a few times and put it where you want. Simple really.

    The Pen tool is the easiest tool to use tbh, once you get used to it, it's so simple. I hated it at first and now I use it for most things. Best thing to use for cutting out also.

    Select Pen tool > Click on Canvas > Click somewhere else, Hold and bend the link > Keep going until Finished > Right Click > Create Custom Shape or Make selection.

    You'll never become good at something if you're not patient. It takes time to get decent/good at something.
