    Metal Interface



    I'm quite happy with it, think i should have removed the white streaks from the blue orb though to be honest.
    I realise the edge of the orb is a bit pixelated also, and i'll probably try fix that soon.

    Just trying out some new ideas. Just wanted to make this simple.

    It looks amazing.
    I don't even know how to cnc this.
    There's really nothing wrong with it.

    Very good composition, very nice theme, very nice idea. Colors should be easy to change, that's very nice too. But I don't feel well about the metal... looks like a bevel/emboss to me, with some shading. It's kinda out of this age, but it's very beastly.

    Cheers for the comments guys
    @Dragon suprisingly no bevel and emboss was used. It's mostly use of gradient maps/Gaussian blurs.

    once, when i had no ideas for sigs, i thought about to start doing web design, so, i searched through dA for examples and other people's work, ive seen much web design, and one catched my eye the most, it was similiar to yours, and it actually looked like real metal..it was AWESOME. im sorry, i cant show u it cuz i forgot his name..heh, but ill try to explain in words..my english isnt perfect so, sorry if i make any mistakes or im not clear enough.

    Okay, compared to his work, this looks like plastic, you must shade it more, make it darker on the sides. Try not to achieve a bevel and emboss effect. I like the big orb u did but orbs for the buttons have too much white imo.
    kinda like this Browsing Web Interfaces on deviantART

    This isnt that guy i was talking about, but i found something similiar to his work.


    sorry if i hurt ur feelings or anything, but i tried to help.

    the link is here http://th09.deviantart.net/fs27/PRE/...y_webgrafi.jpg

    i put the wrong one by accident

    He had more composition to his, this one is simpler, therefore not needing as much detail.
    If he made it any darker on the sides, it would look fake and amateur.
    The progression from highlights through midtones to shadows is smooth, and fine the way it is.

    go and look thourgh atleast 500 pages of web design and then come back.

    THIS looks like bevel and emboss, the progression is good, but, if he wants to get better .well, he should try the link i linked him.

    his looks fake atm. if he would try to make the same as on the link it would look better

    Either way, it's a great start.

    Ryan, i know this isnt bevel and emboss, but like i stated before, it shouldnt look like bevel nd emboss.

    all of you can argue with me how much ur heart desires but i will never back off from my opinion and my thoughts.

    I fell you need to work on the play/pause buttons. They seem too simple and 2d vs the 3d feel of the rest of the image
