Here's a banner I made for my website. I think it looks cool, I'm providing a link because I think its too big to post the full thing.

Nifty NN. Love the feeling of underwater observation platform like the aquariums have. Feeling nothing, thats what it looks like to me. Hope that was the idea.

I wanted to change the "mountains" backdrop of old, but still retain the blue colours and of course the logo we all recognise. I used the "Apply Texture plugin" on the text to liven up the otherwise static text by adding a cropped verson of the PdN logo.

The feeling for me is tranquilitly, bliss and relaxation, just the kind of feeling I have when I sit at my PC and try to create something on PdN. I am sure others see differently, but the feeling of nothing was not how I perceived it. :)

Nice to see some of your work at last NN79 very impressive :) one little critique the paint.net.4.0 doesn't follow the perspective of the wall, try the Perspective plug in part of DPY's pack.

Argh I wish you hadn't pointed that out ... now all I can see is it off skew. =O

It's an easy fix though if you want it to match up at least. Only problem I've had with that darn thing is I tend to have to clean up jaggies in my trials ...

It's not actually following the wall as such, it's following the darker part of the water, I did try with the perspective plugin but the 4.0 became hard to read so I ended up using rotate/zoom. :)

That's what I saw at first. But not that somebody said Blue Elephant, that's all I can see ... Optical illusions are strange like that. Like that spinning girl that takes like 20 minutes to reverse for me ...

I don't see a blue elephant here, I am sorry if my "work" gives illusions of that. I just try to do the best I can do. I am not as pro as others on here sadly.

Pink elephants are worse ... never again have I imbibed so freely. :/

I think Del' means that he hadn't noticed the slight tilt differences until Minners' pointed it out, and now he knows; it pops out at him (?) I like it, a great idea. It's all a learning curve, and sometimes we can't see for looking. I've found that sometimes after staring at the screen for a long time, it pays to stand back and look from a few different angles.

Don't be dis-heartened ...

OMG. ... Okay, first I'll insert the smiley here: :lol::DB) To better illustrate that it wasn't a criticism intended at all. OMGoodnees no ... I was just stuck on a perspective which can be turned on and off. I should also note that if I hadn't been doing this and that, lack of sleep, etc I would have ensured that my often dry humor was illustrated better.

ESPECIALLY since I'm ultra-noob ... I have an eye for this and that and some base experience but I'm far from being "teh pr0z" (rule violation to illustrate point) in any far reach of even my imagination.

I just fired up my nerve to post on the main forum as a new year's resolution and I'm mucking away it seems.

Sincere apologies for any misunderstanding. I've just not gotten to point of commenting on all the great work I've seen you (and many others too folks) plug into the forum. Whether it be text or pictorial, there is layers to being an interactive human in a digital world. You're far surpassing most in your wish to communicate, help, and share ... So please dont let a silly old geek like me dissuade or discourage you.

And if that was somehow dry humor as a passive retort, point taken. I know my limitations. I just forget them sometimes when it comes to communicating in the worlds worst forum: Internet Text in an International Crowd base. 'Cause to be fair, we really dont all speak the same language. I think in flow charts and wiring diagrams a lot ... process analysis and technical writing ... but sometimes I like to wear funny hats. B)

I hope this was enough public falling on of a sword to illustrate I had no intention of slight towards your work and efforts. My first post stands. I love the feel of it and it elicited a sincere need to say something about that impression left upon me. The rest is just locker room banter for all that.

Humbly,

NN, you know how often I mess up on my work, you've seen my "Gallery", so don't take this stuff too deeply to heart.

That having been said, I won't point what others already have. I love this piece. It's has a very tranquil feel to it - besides, blue is one of my favoritey (yes, I said "favoritey") colors!

Kudos to you!

When I saw that coin I "flipped"!. You were "mint" for this type of forum. I enjoy your work and your comments.

I like the feel of combo one, but the font choice doesn't make sense to me.

That background with a paint splash effect put on the font from combo 3 would be a great blend.

The font used in the second combo has good definition while being ornate and based on how the avatar seems to match up, I'd say of the three in their current form, that would be my pick.

Wow that is amazing! I find it hard to locate the right c4d for the job. I look at planet renders and other common site but none really stick out to me.
