I'm quite new to the world of graphics, I've only been making them for a few weeks, so my stuff probably isn't very good, but here some of it is :-D

For a beginner, you're really really good! :blink: I couldn't even figure out those types of effects during my first two months of attempt graphic-making... they were all just blended together with the feathery tool and that was it.

I love that Gandalf one... it looks simple and yet, extremely nice. :yes: Keep it up Bow! You'll be amazing at these in no time... ;)

^ They are beautiful! Great, great job, mate! The Leoglas one is great, and I love Frodo's close up shot on the "you bow to no one" banner. All in all, there awesome! Great job!

These are very, very good, bow! You've picked up some skills quickly, I'm impressed. ;) One very small thing though, which will help make your text look better - try setting the anti-alias to "sharp" or "crisp", that'll give a more natural look to them. I don't know what program you're using, but when you use the text tool, it should be at the top somewhere. ;)

They're amazing for your first few weeks. Nice blending, text, and picture placement especially. I think you have a natural flair.

One thing - have you started experimenting with brushes and textures yet (feel free to ask for links/elaboration)? I noticed too that you used the same fonts... perhaps you could try some variety.

You're off to a great start :D
