    Ooookay, tutorial #1 about layer masks took me around 2 hours and 3 A4-Pages .. wow ...
    I don't want to know how long it will take to get Clipping masks ready T__T

    BUT FOR YOU OTHER GUYS OUT THERE:
    I now made this and I spent 2 hours of my almighty time with it, so you better write your articles and publish it ;D I don't want all that time to be wasted ;D
    I'm glad I'm not having school atm ;D

    Yup, wait a second...

    There you go .. a simple black BG with plasma on it, nothing "Style"-ish :D
    The headline needs some change, now that I see it :/

    If you don't mind me...
    Get rid of the red under the title, the fog in the background is pretty bad, and the plasma just kills the whole thing. Just don't use plasma as an example. Other than that it's well written, cheers!

    Ofcourse I don't mind ;D
    The title sucks, I also noticed that. Changes will come soon ;)

    What would you suggest as a neutral background instead of the slight fog?
    I personally liked the plasma. It got some color inside the whole b/w thing... I could blur it so that it's not as noisy...

    I think the background looks good, but it needs more details, try sharpening. Also I think you need to cover how layer masks are created and go over the difference of each type of layer mask.

    That's page 3/3 for layer masks ;D There are 2 other sites about what a layer mask is and how you create one ;D
    The BG shouldn't gain attention at all, that's why I made it as blurry and inconspicious... Maybe you can have my .xcf pack and you can try something ;) Even though I shouldn't upload them in public before the magazine is out :D

    Okay, I'm done with
    -Layer Masks (3 sites)
    -Gradient Maps (3 sites)
    -Quick Tip #1: Rule of Thirds (1/2 site)
    -Quick Tip #2: New default Canvas sizes (1/2 site)

    Now there's only Clipping Masks left (4 sites I suppose) and then I'm done. AND YOU OTHERS DIDN'T DO ANYTHING! :D
    No seriously, now I really want this thing to publish ;D Let's get it on as long as there's school break in Germany :)


    BTW:
    There's 10-12 pages by me only if I also do the clipping mask tut. I think there's something wrong with that :/ I would fill like 70% of the mag just with my tuts ... that's .. not good :( Maybe I should leave one out for the next issue (if there's one)

    Who's with me btw? I'd like to have a current list of people who do stuff. I just start one, you copy and paste + put your name in if you're going to do something.

    I'm doing signature/LP section. And surely you don't mean 7-12 pages in one issue?

    And yup, I'm having 7 at the moment for this issue (2 tutorials + 2 quick tips) and 1 tutorial of around 4 sites is still left.

    An "Ask Maffe" topic in this forum would do the same job I guess ;)

    Guys, seriously.
    Get something going :D I spent a whole day on this, and I want my time to be spent useful :D I have got 7 pages, I'll give you 4 of them for the first issue. I'll send them to Rod when Cyril is done with the Signature/LP section + the cover and Maffe got 2 sites with questions and answers :D
