Late, as it seems it's becoming the norm... But here it is!
Do not use them to make your own. My psds and my textures aren't bases: you can't use layers from my psds to make yours, nor my textures to make your own textures. Also, do not reupload/repack/redistribute my resources. If you want to share them, share a link to the original post.
On the Go
Sadly, July didn't bring many resources around.
Let's hope August is better!
None this month
Witch Trick of the month
I've said it before, but I'll repeat myself. Avoid black text, unless you're making a b/w graphic or a piece that has already black tones in it. If not, text will look odd and out of place. When picking a color for it, the best you can do is picking it with the color selector. Then, alter it if needed (make it lighter or darker). Most of times it works wonders., mainly because you're using a color that it's already in the palette of your graphic.

Winners of The Fun House Event!
There was really little participation on this event. In fact, with each new event I create, the participation becomes lesser and lesser. Which I don't really understand, being I celebrate having more watchers. I really put a lot of effort coming with new ideas and organizing said events, so it's a little discouraging to have barely 2-3 people participating in the games.
was the only participant and, therefore, the absolute winner!
Being you were the only contestant, you won an extra prize—a premium psd pack!

Tea & Cookies - We Ran Out Of Cookies... And Tea!
There haven't been any suggestions for this section in a long, long time. So I'll leave a couple topics that we could discuss in the next feature. Pick one and leave your opinion down below and I'll be including it in August's feature.
Step by step tutorials + PSD graphics
Are they useful? Which one is better? Is it okay to follow them step by step or use layers from someone else's graphics? What do you think it's most important when it comes to the learning process?
Is every image you find good to make resources? Do you think it's okay for people to use images from Tumblr & We Heart It to make their resources? What's your opinion on paid resources? What's your opinion on packs that only redistribute other people's resources?
What do you think could be improved in the graphic community? What topics should we be focusing on? Is there anything lacking in the community?
Now it's your turn!
