Hiya Steph that looks really cool, but as usual can I give you a quick tip or two.

When working with perspectives its really key that you create an image that tricks the eye. In other words if your focal point in this case the Nvidia logo has a certain perspective then everything behind and infront needs to follow this perspective.
The honeycomb effect at the back needs to follow the lines of the logo. I've made a quick rendition below but I've made it wrong on purpose to show you what I mean.

The yellow dotted line shows my perspective whilst the red dotted line shows the real perspective. The blue dotted line shows how it should have been. (In PS and Corel you can pull in guide lines from the rulers which make it easier to create the perspective effect)
Also the honeycomb effect reflected upwards against the sides of shiny chrome would sort of distort / refract at funny angles giving a sort of distorted appearance and you should see none of the honeycomb ontop of the face of the text (see below) ... hope this helps a bit ... but keep it up as your churning out some really good stuff

Thanks Keith I just downloaded corel7 tonight,
For some reason I just have issues following Nick ?
I did see that tut but got lost in the speed he tends to kick into hyperdrive and sometime his type covers the next tool
Plus he tends to use images... which I can not produce,
Cheer.

Good start Mike but the outer part has too sharp an outline where it meets the inner transparent part.

Some of Nick's vids are fast. did you know YouTube has a pause/rewind/backup feature?
I use them a lot even for Blue Lightning TV.
