  16. I found a picture on Deviantart I liked, and desaturated it to give it the black and white look. I photoshopped out the cars on the road, and added a gold tinge to the car. Then I used Cloud and Smoke shaped brushes to make the fog/smoke stuff. I used my Galactic brushes to make the stars in the top right and the planet you see. Then I just added the text and used blending effects to get it to look the way it does.

  17. I do like the photoshopped stuff more than the winner, i'm sorry but it's the truth...
