Nice tutorial! This is something that beginniners will likely find very useful! Maybe in future do a video though.


Yeah, thank you for the feedback though! I love that people respond so fast!


And I just saw my cursor didn’t join the picture, Wowzer.


This is a really good tutorial for beginners!!


PhotoPea is a great alternative to Photoshop, and you’ve proven it can make great logos!


I don’t quite understand why your calling this a game logo when clearly its a thumbnail. The resolution you provide is 16:9 and it should really be 1:1.

I think I could make a similar effect much faster in Figma.

Since a lot of people do not have Photoshop, and it’s totally a decent tutorial, beginners will obviously learn a lot of stuff from this tutorial!

Keep up the great work!

Okay, thanks for the feedback.

to be honest I would use Pixlr E.

Sure, it is an alt to this. But Imo photopea is easier to learn.
