For a 13 year old that is brilliant, keep at it, it seems you have some real talent.

Fireworks is a graphic-y program that is part of the Macromedia Studio suite. Btw, Nice work! Keep it up!

Wow!

I'm not sure what fireworks is like...is it a vector program? I bet you'll be a popular kid at school to 'already' do things like that. I'll have to show my daughter (she's 13 too) Maybe it will "inspire" her :cool: Great work!

Fireworks is a bitmap and vector hybrid that is tuned for web design only... making it much more suited for the task than Photoshop.

Nice. One suggestion if I may. The upper left side has a nice rounded look, the lower right looks a little flat. If you are looking for roundness on that side try creating a shadow that arcs along the curve. I did this quickly in PS, hope you don't mind that I did it on your artwork, it's easier to show than explain.

I second that.

Tom, if you're cranking out stuff like that in 3-5 minutes @13 yrs., you have some talent. Go for it! :)

Dude, that's pretty amazing!

You could be a professional designer with a bit more work :D

Mind you, i did this with my school laptop (it had fireworks on it), but my teacher is trying to get me a copy of Adobe Creative Suite 2 web bundle for mac (for free). BTW: My teacher is trying to convince one of his friends to give it to me because i had a brain tumor (it's true! i am half bald because of it!)

Sorry if you didn't understand. I was saying that the shadow should have an arc to it like the red line. The one you did ran like the blue line. You did a very nice job, just offering a tip to make it better.;)

this is talent!

this will sound weird, but I now really want an application that starts with the letter T so it could be the application icon for it :p
I thought about for 5 minutes an app that began with T. I can't come up with one!:mad: :confused: Can anyone think of any?:eek:
