0y there, This page is simply a sample, I havent uploaded my entire website since I can't find "less intrusive" hosting (that damn banner!). The future website is a way to give back to the gaming community which has put up with my antics and/or behaviour becuase they know Im just a little reckless but in no way am I trying to distrupt the multiplayer game experience. - Julni, aka: Odra "Die yuppie scum!"

Digital Rorschachs ( Custom Logos ).

First off most of this tutorial is based on Tutorialman's logo tutorial and the many "tentacle" tutorials out there. I simply tried combining them since I like less angular logos.

Lets start, fire up Photoshop (any version will do) and create a 250 x 250 RGB document.
?

Now select the Polygon Lasso ? and make a random selection, you CAN make it complex to make it more
unique, BUT its most likely you'll end up with a mess, so try to keep it simple for now.
?

Fill the selection with black (i.e. Select black as your background color and press Ctrl-Delete)
?

Select a square around your image with enough space on both sides for the upcoming distortion.
?

Go to Filter > Distort > Shear and distort your shape to your liking.
?

Duplicate this layer, then press Ctrl-T to bring up the Transform menu, right click the shae and select "Flip Horizontal"
?

Voila! Theres your logo.
?

You can use these logos in any number of ways, like in the examples below.
Left: The Tutorial logo used in a graphic.
Right: A logo I used for a webpage.
Bottom: The Tutorial logo used in my Jedi Academy skin. (Original-Left, My skin-Right)
