    This is something super random I've been fooling with all day. What could I do to it? (besides burn it) ;)

    Hmm. It's a little empty and dark. Try an effect stock or a c4d. Also, this is just preference, but I think the canvas size is a little too small =/ It's not bad though, it just needs a little polish.

    Yeah, I just picked a goofy size to see what I could stick in it, I'll look for a c4d. :)

    Yeah the blending is all crazy, it's not really meant to look blended, just wacky.

    I originally was going to, but then I decided to see how psychedelic I could make it, and a console would distract from the controller. :)

    Hopefully you don't mind my taking your sig, but I had an idea that was best to show you rather than tell you.
    Maybe you could try something like in the image I attached?

    That doesn't look too bad, maybe displace it so it matches the plasma effects. ;)

    Yeah, that would probably look better.
    Really, I just slapped it on there because I got the idea XD

    Ooo, I like that. It almost looks like it's tearing open or something.

    Did you just displace it by itself/a plasma layer or something? Because I'd like to know how to do that if you don't mind :D

    It was a plasma layer, I made the three lines, displaced it and then displaced again but changed the x and y to the opposite value. Finally I duplicated the layer, blurred it and set the mode to lighten only. merged the layers together and set it on screen. :)

    The new site isn't for tutorials, just projects.

    I might make a quick tut.
