Hi if a vote is needed, you have mine Nathan! This image is so tastefully done and so appropriate!! You would actually think that this image had been done by an expert, wouldn't one? Only teasing! If and when a selection is made (if ever), this would be mine! Very nicely done and very special Nathan! Sincerely, Marilyn

Wow, that's fab. It seems dark and mysterious and I love the centre of the design with the metal-styled Caedes logo. Great job.

Now, if you flipped it, trimmed it, reforged it a little, it could be a Tiara! Is the Crown next? Great for a King and Queen of the next Caedes Picnic!!! Just an idea......meow....

"Tastefully done" says one commentator/ I like that. "Not a better representation of the Caedes logo" says another. I like that also. Those two statements about sum it up. Nothing more I can add except a score...10.

The Lighting effects is the most capturing in this particular image. It gives it this "volcano tribe" feel...or campfire...I don't know how to explain it. But I also agree with marilyn on the "tastefully done" use of the Caedes logo.

It's too bad I can't have you stand and watch over my shoulder - it would be much easier to than trying to explain. I usually start these by using the Photoshop pen tool create a basic design. Often I'll copy that basic path shape, paste it, then rotate the copy to come up with an even more interesting design. Once I have the design worked out, I'll stroke the pen path with the paintbrush tool on a new layer. After that, I apply the gold style to it (I have a tutorial about how to do that in my gallery). I finish up by creating "jewels" (another tutorial on that one, too), and layering fractals I've created with free programs like Tierazon, VChira, and ChaosPro. Hope you find this helpful.

Beautiful work, even if a bit heavy on the gold and formality for my own taste. I'm not usually a great fan of these colours, but they look fabulous here. I like the thought of a flaming, burning Caedes - not Caedes going up in destructive flames, but Caedes burning brightly like a flame in the darkness.

Nice title, too!

Hello Nathan, I just saw this creation of yours for the first time, it was on the opening page of caedes today. I hate spiders, but I have to say you made this particular one look just magnificent! What a awesome icon for caedes. I'm sure
mr caedes himself must have enjoyed this very much. The colours are gorgeous.So illuminating of the subject and they just give a wonderful feeling throughout..thankies..Verena
