Can see here you've been quite busy producing some nice work. Knowing what is involved with the work and skills required to produce these images, you are off to a good start. Keep it up, there is lots to explore and learn. Have been downloading, installing scripts and plugins the past few days that are producing some nice effects. Soon you may be adding some to your creations as well. Looking forward for the next. Have a good one!

Looks Ok to me.

Thank you for giving it a try  :)

So Jason Voorhees has found Bhuddism.  He won't be terrorising horny teenagers anymore.  :)

I also like the Chinese style text (though I think it needs to be a little bit lighter).

Are these okay ?
I wasn't sure if you'd like the logo lighter too so done one of each.

Basis of my first try at wallpapers, it's my second try at gimp, I call him "Halloween Buddha".
The original stock image (free for commercial and non commercial use, no attribution required) is of a buddha outline only, in orange lines, on top of a photo of a pier by the sea, you can see this on GimpChat in Halloween thread. I made it a white outline and insides for a future project.
I then made him into a 3d (sort of) instead of line drawing, "Halloween Buddha", it reminds me more of a Demonic or Ghost Warrior sitting in meditation before battle, I made with nice subtle hints of colours through his robes.
I made feather text last week, and also many of graffiti texts , one is shown below, in an online method, then tweaked it in Gimp, change colour resized, added inner/outer colour and etc.
I posted Halloween Buddha on GimpChat today, whilst making the wallpaper I also noticed his head needed reshaping was flat as I cropped too tightly, so this are the only version with reshaped curved head so far.
Finally I made logo of repeated "LL" out of feather text and blended this together and reduced opacity, to make it look like Chinese "style/effect", placing this floating above the magical hands in front of the heart, coz he is a wise and loves LL.
Just different option with/without components of that.
