My layer styles have been used a lot in the marketing for Aeria Games (mostly because I work there).
The main ones that get used all the time are from my Days of Steel series: http://graphicriver.net/collections/2782483-days-of-steel
You can see a quick example in this game trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBBDn2-j4W8
I can’t really link to everything since I’ve had my hand in pretty much everything new within the last 8 or 9 months, but if you want to try and find them yourself then you can look through the websites and trailers here: http://www.aeriagames.com/ XD
A while back I remember seeing a thread in which people posted links to large projects by other companies which used items from Envato. I guess it was sort of meant to show the different areas in which our items are being used.
I can’t find that thread anymore and was wondering if anyone else might know where it is. The only reason being that I have some things where my items have been used and wanted to show them.
Great video items! All very polished and high quality. Quite dynamic too compared to a lot of other video items I’ve seen.
I think it would extremely unfair if they favored people who have more items and sales. If they did that then people submitting their first item would have to wait forever while reviewers constantly put other items above them. What they have now is fine and fair to everyone. The only thing they could do to increase the review rate would be to hire more reviewers.
I started posting items a few years ago, I definitely don’t do this full time, it’s mostly just for fun and the money I make usually goes towards other items. However, it did get me a full time job in the gaming industry!
About a year ago I got an email from someone claiming that they found my layer styles and would like to offer me a job at a place called Aeria Games. I was completely skeptical and didn’t believe that it was legit because I’m from Canada and this is a company in Germany, of all places! And the fact that it was just some layer styles that caught their eye was hard to believe. After looking into it more I realized this this is actually a big company and the person who emailed me was actually the lead designer in the marketing team. So a few Skype calls later I packed a bag and moved to Berlin, Germany! Never been to Europe before or speak a word of German, but I’m loving this job and am very happy for this amazing opportunity. It would have never happened if it wasn’t for Envato.
I thought it was normal to wait that long. My items are usually reviewed within 10 minutes to 2 weeks.
I’m not really a programmer myself, but it’s nice to hear that IE may finally stop being a problem for developers! Let’s hope that this new one doesn’t pose any problems.
Hmm… I have no idea why they would keep rejecting it. Try sending a message to Support and ask if you can get some actual feedback on why they would reject it so many times. I’ve done this before with one of my items and they told me why so I was able to make the proper changes.
