@Norman – Yes sir, put it into practice, its a great exercise.
@Kris – Once you start copying for practice, you’ll start to clearly see and understand the potential of what you can design. It gets you excited when you begin to design similar to other top designers. Its a great practice.
Pretty funny, im on some random baseball site I never heard of (sports on earth) reading a dee gordon article, and when I get to comment section Im like “Hey that guys avatar looks pretty familiar”. So It hits me, ah that’s the guy on youtube that i watch some tutorials about fireworks and has a training site. Anyway I thought it was strange and maybe a sign i should join your site. ( i did have it bookmarked as a possible site i would join as i felt your one of the most personable and well spoken people i have watched video’s on before).
