thankyou so very much for the warm compliment :aww: :heart: this one was fun to put together but the trickiest part i found was adding the rainbow gradient on this one after i pulled it all together :faint:

ErinM31 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2011
You are most welcome! :hug:

I am quite surprised that the gradient would be the most difficult part! May I ask how you did so?

:iconrockgem:
rockgem Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
:hug: well i made the entire image in black and white then added a new layer with the gradient on it in photoshop. then made it very transparent and copied the merged layers - then tweaked the brightness and contrast so the colours showed up brighter on the white parts and not on the black areas :giggle:

ErinM31 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2011
Wow, I was sure there had to be an easier way, but after fooling around with Photoshop I did not find one. :hmm: I found ways to do other neat-looking things though, lol.

:nod: there probably is an easier way to be fair - but i always work with 'photoshop elements' i know they're more advanced than that one now but elements works for me and does all that i need to do so i'm happy with it. - to be fair i'm still discovering cool things to do with photoshop and i've been using it for years - that for me is half the fun :giggle:
