LoonDesign is 1 Year Old Now!June 16th, 2008 in Articles by kailoon
Time past fast ( what a classic opening ), LoonDesign is 1 year old already. LD (LoonDesign) had provide some good stuffs for the readers. Me, the only one who is running this site all the while. She gave me a lot of sweet memories but there is also some negative feedbacks. All the way, I would like to say thank you to all my readers who always return and show me their support and interest. Let’s back to where we met …
From the beginning, I only wish to write some tutorials and get some traffics so that I can earn some pocket money from our local advertising company. End up, all of them seem like not so promising and having some “friendly fighting” among them. So, I quit. I go for paypost. I write whatever they offer. End up, I am having a “rojak (mixed)” content blog. I don’t like it. So, I changed. I stay focus on writing stuffs what related to my field – web design. I am sure that I made a correct decision. I am more happy to manage the site in this way and direction.
Now, I still write some paypost. The different is advertisers will look for me and I will also filter the topic they want. I will also reject the offer which is not related to my site or I think their products or services are not good. I always love to share good stuffs with my readers.
Below are some of the best of LD.
The Best Of LoonDesign
Flexible Glossy Orb
I write this tutorial based on the glossy trend last year to get some traffics. I also wish that I can provide an easier and more flexible way to create a glossy orb. It has been featured by NI-Limits. I get some confident here and continue to write more.

This tutorial explain how to turn an image into vector using illustrator. I used the one of my favorite anime’s character as an example to work on. This tutorial also featured in Top Ten Tutorials For June 2007 by NI-Limits.
Water Color Effect
One of my favorite effect in photo editing. I have seen these effect before I learn Photoshop. You can probably find it on the cover of Chinese novels. Last time, I thought they really draw and paint it using water color. But now, I can make it using Photoshop. Featured in The PhoshopRoadMap.
