Hmm well I do have long hair, but I've only got a bit of stubble at the moment!
Yeah travelling to Kings Heath would probably be a pain, don't think I'd fancy that. I work in the opposite direction, in snobby Sutton!
Great news on the graphics, I look forward to checking them out - your sigs are getting better really fast btw, I'm impressed! Kinda makes me want to get my ass in gear and go through some more GIMP tuts!
Knock yourself out man, I'll happily check out anything you make if you fancy doing some! I could do with some decent graphics for my site-sig on here tbh - the way mine is done now is two pictures that fit together (so I can have them both as separate clickable links), but they're both a bit plain!
Oh and the store I worked in was ePlay in the Bullring - it was awesome but the company went into administration. I would probably still be there now if not - it was such a great job!
When I blended the car in to the background I used a few C4d's from planet renders. Then chose a brush that I liked then apply Jitter it takes awhile to get used to blending. I'm still learning so I can't say much but practice. Cheers for the comments as well.
