Speech Bubbles/Balloons - How I Do It

Skill Level: Beginner / Views: 280 / System Requirements: Photoshop, Gimp, Paint Shop Pro, any app that uses layers

I've had several folks ask how I do the speech bubbles/balloons for my "Girls From T.N.A." series. Here's a look at the process I use. This is a PDF file, so you'll need Adobe Reader or another PDF reader. While I use Photoshop for the final composite, Gimp or Paint Shop Pro (or any graphics app allowing use of layers) would work as well. Hope this helps! If you have any questions, feel free to SM me! Enjoy!

Simple Cutaway animations in LightWave using no plugins

Skill Level: Intermediate / Views: 138 / System Requirements: LW 9+

This revisits an old technique which used a second object to "fill in" the cutaway area. In this version I use nodes to color the back sides of polygons to make it look like the mesh is filled in when really it's just hollow. It's a fake effect and it has some limitations, but it might do what you need it to do.
