i'll be sure to try some of those methods in the future :D
i gave it some additive chromatic abberation firstly and added a bit of a blurry glow and then i resampled it to make the edges less sharp. i also shifted and skewed a few horizontal strips of pixels. the rest was saving jpeg compressed versions and overlaying them over the PSD (even sometimes resizing the JPEG versions) in various layer modes. i also erased random bits with grunge brushes a few times using low-opacity grunge brushes (generally ones big enough to cover the whole image) and also overplayed some glitch art (google it) over the picture, sometimes merge copying really weird looking examples i got with layer modes, deleting the glitch art layer, and then pasting and then using another layer mode to correlate with rest of the layers. i also screwed with the levels and color balance periodically.
mind telling me how you did it?
yes, but that wasn't what i used primarily to achieve the effect
did you use brushes on your huaxia logo?
