    The winner of the last competition, Woodsy, has chosen the object of 'Unshelled Walnut'. That is to say, a walnut that has had its husk removed, but not its shell. See example photo: Enter Here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/110902-object-of-the-fortnight-2-–-unshelled-walnut/ In the hopes of inspiring you (or possibly giving you a laugh), here's a short cartoon I enjoyed when I was a kid. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0041112/

    Average Object Color averages the colors of objects. It was somewhat inspired by the SOTW mosaic theme (even though I currently don't plan to use it for my entry). It's in the Object submenu. The plugin: Average Object Color.zip The UI is very simple: The (also simple) Help Menu describes it as follows. ------------------------------ Average Object Color recolors each object to its average color. (An object is a connected group of non-transparent pixels surrounded by transparent pixels.) The average is weighted by the opacity of the pixels. When there is a selection, only the selected pixels are included in the average. The control is: Use Gamma Adjustment: When enabled, the square root of the average of the squared color components is used. The gamma-adjusted version is generally lighter. ------------------------------ If a solid image is desired, the Edge Expander can be used to fill in the transparent regions after averaging. (Note: make sure the objects are separated by completely transparent pixels. The first time I posted the example below, the colors of the averaged version were wrong. Some of the hexagon cells were not treated as separate objects because they were bridged by nearly, but not completely, transparent pixels. I used Red ochre's Transparency>Alphathreshold to fix the problem.) Here is an example: Original image: Image with hexagonal transparent grid added. The grid was added by using MadJik's Hexagonal Grid to produce a black-and-white grid in another layer, copying it to the clipboard, and using BoltBait's Paste Alpha plugin to modify the alpha of the flower layer. Because the lines between the cells are quite thin, apparently the alpha didn't go to 0 between some of the cells, causing some groups of cells to be treated as single cells. I solved this by using Red ochre's Alphathreshold to make some almost-transparent pixels transparent. I also could have selected the lines of the hex grid with the Magic Wand, switched to the flower layer, then used Erase Selection. I usually prefer to use Paste Alpha because I think it produces nicer edges. Averaged version:

    Here's something that might be fun to play with, whether it's useful or not. It draws cardinal splines, colors them with various brush settings, rotates them etc. For me it was an exercise in GDI+ and OptionBased UI. Any bug reports or suggestions welcome... Found under Effects>Render menu. UI: Option: controls the randomness of the splines. Rotations: how many copies of the spline around a circle. Tension: controls the spline tension, how jagged or 'loopy'. Angle: rotates the splines. Sigma Focus: gradient center. Sigma Scale: gradient falloff. Gradation Size: size of the gradient rectangle. Zoom: zoom in or out. Draw/Fill/Both: how to paint the splines. Color tabs: select Pen/Alt/Bgd colors. Path Brush Draw/Fill: use path brush on either draw or fill. Path Controls: click drop-down to display more path options. AntiAlias: set smoothing mode. Points: click drop-down to display/change point data Menu Button: allows saving and loading of options and other cool stuff. Installation: Unzip "mandala.zip" and copy the following files: mandala.dll, mandala.dlc into the Effects folder of your Paint.NET installation. A typical location is "C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\Effects". OptionBasedLibrary v0.7.9.dll, OptionBasedLibrary v0.7.9.dlc into the folder of your Paint.NET installation (not into the Effects folder!). (unless it is already there, then you can skip this step) A typical location is "C:\Program Files\Paint.NET". Thanks to Midora for the optionBased library and to toe_head2001 for examples of using it. Enjoy. mandala.zip

    Except the Maximize button and the related changes were made after the v1.3 release, so not everyone can do that yet.

NEW ADDITION 03/06/2014 New Life Created this image using TechnoRobbo's new Strange Attractors plugin. No real reason for calling it new life, it just suited it NEW ADDITION 20/05/2014 St Jude's Ghost. Followed this Picture Frame tute by xod and use an image of my own from the St Jude storm that hit the South-east of England in October 2013. I called it St Jude's Ghost for obvious reasons. Not exactly a 100% Pdn art, but worth a share NEW ADDITION 22/04/2014 Pipes. Using RedOchre's new Slinky plug in to make this object. I used some wet floor reflection on the final image NEW ADDITION 10/11/2013 Finally got to grips with TechnoRobbo's Doodle Matic Plug In.

NEW ADDITION 05/11/2013 Playing around with TechnoRobbo's new Free Warp Plug In NEW ADDITION 17/10/2013 Experimenting a little further with some spiral gradient in paint.net 4 and a few blending and duplicating layers gave me this one.

NEW ADDITION 27/03/2013 Having another play around with clipwarp for this one. NEW ADDITION 12/03/2013 An Alien (or cyber wasp) Unfinished creation, If anyone wants the PDN to complete it, Let me know, I'm lost what to do next on it NEW ADDITION 12/03/2013 Playing around with some tube oblique and shape 3D ended up with a contemporary ornament. NEW ADDITION 27/02/2013 A slightly modified and bigger version of my SOTW75 Comp entry. NEW ADDITION 19/02/2013 A shape 3D / Rotate/zoom abstract. Could be missing something, unsure what though.

(many thanks Welshblue for taking the time and thought into enhancing the image ) NEW ADDITIONS 27/01/2013 Another clipwarp creation: I was just messing around with Shape 3D and created this one called puzzled world.

This has taken me a long time to complete, Thank you to nanettealsop for the idea of adding a button on top of the needle NEW ADDITION 11/01/2013. Using Red Ochre & Null54's Clipwarp plug in, I'm really pleased with this one. NEW ADDITION 11/01/2013.

    Version 1.2 posted. This release is nice and fast. You no longer have to wait for the dialog to load; it's ready nearly instantly. On my main computer, with about 390 effects installed, the plugin opens in ~0.33 seconds.

    ^ I enjoyed that ...I thought his name sounded familiar. He used to write for 'Guitar Techniques' magazine, which I used to buy. No wonder I could never play his pieces!
