Well the deal was, I (unfairly) assumed anyone around here who could show me up was too busy (like, malice).

I will tell you, about 6 people have contacted me about it already. I havn't heard much though.

My problem is, I can't blend, shade, and smooth images together, and create backgrounds with effects, and I'd (like) something as good as the example sites (impressive, no?)

k.. i get you..
so nvm about my try...
Or.

You touch up your try. Or you start over after a few quick minutes of brainstorming a new layout.

You make something AMAZING.

You shove the fact that someone OTHER then anyone he wanted made such a GREAT peice of artwork in Ryoko's face ;)

He uses it.
You smile.
The world is happy once again.

I'd prefer the alternative ;)

You mean, like layers? Yeah, that'd be a good idea.

my attempt:

I've tried skinning, was okay at my first one, 4.5/5 then it got deleted for breaking rules which i never saw on the rules page.

Anyway, got a template of a button and a background, my first attempt so hope you like it:

hey krakka and jindo how did u do those. To me they look rely great. Did you free-hand, or take a pic from WE/WC3 and copy paste?

jindo, you suck at rendering..
eheheh
you cut off the sorceress' staff orb.
When you say you skinned it, do you mean you use photoshop!?! or another program, if so which 1?

Did you look at the link in Ryoko's original post? All the images are from there.

I think I'll try to make something from this. Give me some time, I should have a rough idea later tonight.

OK, I have Photoshop in front of me, and I'm starting to try some stuff out. A few things, though:

My idea uses the Gryphon Rider image, and just extends the theme, so it'll be using the same kinds of colors as the gryphon rider is (sort of sunset-lit colors). Problem with that is that graytex.jpg doesn't fit into it at all (why do you want that image, anyway? To hide the black error text? :p)

What's the minimum header width you want?

How strictly should I follow that little green and black diagram?

what will be wierd is that if its all orange (well themed orange), it will not fit the black web page..
but just keep trying.. i wanna see!
graytext.jpg?

Yeesh, man, I just said that it wouldn't fit into a black page, which is what he requested (he wanted the background to be graytex.jpg—go to the tutorial site and type /images/graytex.jpg to see it. It's a black box. Making that the background gives you a black background). If the site didn't have to be black, it would work fine. After all, he said he wants a skin for the site, not a header.

Edit: I made a rough version of a header. It's very much open for alterations. Also, I arbitrarily chose a length (400 pixels). If there isn't space for all 400 pixels down (and I doubt there will be) I can easily cut it all the way down to 250 pixels without really losing anything.
