--The themes of your wallpapers or large pieces are absolutely up to you so long as they aren't too profane, photo manipulations are good too :D

What you'll learn from them is:

--use of different tools and filters around your photoshop program

-lighting and blur effects

-overlaying textures onto the main image or vice versa

-different filter effects and how they are used

-how to create and install brushes to use in your final piece

-most of all, how to make your work really stand out from the crowd.

Tutorials:

this one should keep you all occupied:

Maybe you could put up the first as a for instance reference sample mate?
Also: theres a lot to choose from there, maybe pick any one to create from and title it as such.
Just a thought but great idea mate.

P.S. ALMIGHTY BELIAL i think not mate - we are all one and the same here.

I would probably have the patience Hoogleman, but I didn´t have to, I found light wisp pictures on that site I linked to yesterday, I used 3 different ones and messed around with them all over the place lol.
