    Little somewhat-decent thing I just put together out of boredom.

    Got kinda sick of ppl telling me I was addicted to NeturaText and only did stuff on gray backgrounds (which this was, since theres no other fitting colors) =P

    Very unusual type thing.

    I'm gonna be honest. You filled the background with 50% gray, and drew with several layers of simple color brushes (and by drew, i mean clicked). Then you used the text tool to type two lines in completely un-matching fonts in white. Essentially, you used brushes (which you didn't design) and two fonts (which you didn't design), and now you're calling it "your" design. I'm not trying to be discouraging, but you should put some more time into your work. You'll find yourself a lot happier with it. Also, this is an excellent resource for learning about colors and how they work with each other. Keep on designing.

    Pretty nice, though I find there's too much stuff going on. I'm more of a simplistic type of person

    Oh, and it could use a border.

    Same here.
    I was just trying to prove a point that I can use colors other than grey/white/black

    Didnt really think too much of it

    There was more going on behind the scenes, buddy.
    It actually started out w/ a 110 degree light to dark grey gradient.
    Then I added a 0.7 grain.

    Then I used a combination of 4 brushes, with different opacity and tip adjustments to each one.

    Then on a new layer, I filled it with some grunge, set the blend mode to overlay, and drug it up to the top, and dropped opacity to a sex amount.

    Then I wrote the iThemer with one font, duplicated the layer, flipped it vertical, and masked it with a white>transparent gradient. Then, in my "completely unmatching text :|", I wrote the second thing of text.

    Then with a 100px feathered elipse tool, I drew an oval around all my text, and erased the selection from every single layer.

    ... Dont think you know what I did. =P

    Thanks.

    Meh, it's ok, good work. The font makes it look like it's from Rolando or something. Lol
