    Just wondering how some artists here get those awesome looking computer pieces.
    I've been messing around with Photoshop and Illustrator for a while now and can do fills and effects, but have still had no luck with actual letterform.
    Just wondering if anyone has any tips or hints that could help?

    Try Macromedia Flash MX 2004-5 . You can dowloand it free (So I have heard) but you will have to rip the code. Exellent for any flash work.

    Try it

    i think you have to spend a few hours in illustrator (depending on how complex your piece is) tracing over a scanned, photographed piece using the pen tool or something similar,

    making closed shapes or outlines out of them so you can change the stroke and the fill...

    it takes a lot of work to do a nice computer piece,
    i would imagine it would take a while.
