  1. Luv your work Woodsy, always evocative and well crafted.
  2. Beautiful work Pixey,I'm out of reps (again) so I have to say; luv your critters :-)
  3. Tuvm Seerose and lynxster, yes I quoted Scotty and we are off the planet.., in a cosmic greenhouse..somewhere in the future :-)
  4. Your doing some nice work LD, very stylish. I'm out of reps but luv your feline looking dragons. Great subject, might have to have a go @ making a dragon myself soon. Good onya LD :-)
  5. Tuvm Maxi' yes it's all Pdn. It mostly consists of the "Carbon fibre" texture, I can't recall where I found it but think it way cool and versatile. Tuvm LD, so long as u r critters get on with my cat, welcome aboard and Pixey its a spaceship thingy not a train but yeah it looks a bit trainy :-) Inspired x the greenhouse ship in the movie 'Silent running' from about 1972 . Cheers Red, it's ashly a study for texture, shading and one point perspective. Its also the first time I've used "Curves" for colouring as well. I previously just used the palette. I've built houses that didn't take as long as this piece but thats all part of the learning curve I guess. I need to make time for checking out the forum as well. "I just can't do it captain, I dont have the power" Scotty from Star trek :-)
  6. This is a new piece. I tried hard not to get weird but I I just couldnt help myself. I was working on a perfectly normal perspective study and it went all fuchsiaristic on me. Shades of "Silent running" and all that sort of thing. I dunno if anyone here is old enough to remember that.
  7. I just invested my life savings in a new machine. I'm almost excited.

    I've been running a 32 bit system with an i5 and 4 gigs of ram and its just not been good enough for running Pdn. I now have a 64 bit system with an i7  and 16 gig of ram. Having just checked it out I can see it's gonna run way faster and smoother with less conflicts and crashes. It should also run some plugins that I haven't been able to use. Ooh! I think I am excited.

    Good onya Pdn.

      Tuvm LD :-) Nothing like an upgrade. Happy as.


  8. Years ago I was on a walk in unfamiliar scrubland for a couple of days when the weather turned nasty and I got a bit bushed. That is to say that I lost my bearings and didn’t have myself exactly orientated which was a somewhat dire situation to be in, in that neck of the woods. It was rough going through the scrub with my backpack and clobber, compass in one hand and map (in a plastic bag to keep it dry) in the other. Anyways to cut a short story long, I saw a wallaby leap out from behind a shrub and head off in a southerly direction. I intuitively followed said wallaby and in no time I had myself reorientated, averted disaster and rediscovered the trail by the trampled underbrush. I wasn’t getting lost today. Later on that evening after I’d set up camp and dried myself off a bit I stood outside my tent and checked out the by now clear moonlit night. A wallaby was standing a few yards from the tent checking me out as he browsed on herbage. He looked like the same wallaby I’d seen earlier but I couldn’t be too sure as all them wallaby’s look the same to me. I thanked him anyways.
  9. Beautiful work as per usual Pixey :-) I like your use of Dents.
  10. Beautiful Lynxster, what a treat :-)
  11. Tuvm Seerose, Lynxster and Woodsy. The faces are done on a photocopier Woodsy with the faces pressed against the screen :-)
  12. Tuvm LionsDragon. The music is avant garde electronica so eerie is apt :-)
  13. This a background I did for a flyer that will have txt printed on it. It's for an opera being performed by a community performance group and someone else does the txt. I was asked to provide a starscape with the photocopied faces coming out of clouds. The original is A3 @ 300 dpi which is big by my standards. That's like 26 MB compared to about 2 for the jpeg copy I've posted @ 250 dpi. I had to borrow my daughter's computer cause mine doesn't have enough memory and would have been problematic.
  14. I can see how this could be useful, havent tried it but it looks good. Will def' give it a go sometime, tuvm Noop.
  15. Hang in there Lynxster, "She'll be right on the night"
