Realistic Roughcast Metal

Recommended Posts

Really nice Ella. There's something symbolic about having a heart made out of rough metal - non-conformist where love is corncerned (but I'm thinking again and that's never a good thing !!)

A great background sets the whole piece up beautifully. Nice one

Oh Ella! Wonderstruck! Fits nicely with the current SOTW theme too. This is what I am working on at the moment :D

 

Totally agree with WB - fab background to set it off. Lovely contrast of textures.

As my picture says - HI there! Great tut Welshy. I see you`ve posted a few good ones since I was last here. I`ll have to have a go at them. Thought I would go for a two tone text on this one, hope you like it. Oh and thanks to Chelsea we are 2 points clear again. Nice one. ;)

I think I must be getting dumber as I get older. I have tried this tute 5 times now and I can't get it right. This effort is all I could manage.

After set your primary and secondary color and apply Stylize -218, 30, -1.666667 you need to move this layer down and then select above layer to apply new primary and secondary color and Stylize with new settings.

Everything works fine until I get to this step - "Duplicate the newly merged layer, set blend mode to reflect >> Opacity 174/175 ish".

It's after that stage my text becomes like the one I posted. :/

Tried yet again, the only work around I could come up with was after running diffuse and duplicating, was to also duplicate again. At least this time I got a little closer. Not ideal, but pleased with the result I did manage to get.

I don't know what to say Drew. That is very strange.

I know you're a guy with experience in PDN and you can not make mistakes when you follow a tutorial.

I tried to unite this tutorial with another one. That's what I'd got:

Also, on another image (which was 1920x1200) I tried to name layers properly.

@Pixey ... there must be pandemonium all over the internet.  I read somewhere that a lot of ebay and amazon users have been hit too.  Not just forum users.  Not to mention bloggers etc.  Could be the start of the decline of PB ?

@Woodsy ... Thanks for the offer mate.  Some are really image heavy and I know you've already got your work cut out as it is.  

After speaking with EER about Google Docs, the drag and drop is pretty quick.  If I need a hand I'll give you a shout

 

Love the sig.  Very sensible using a pushing stick.  If I had ... I'd still have my thumb and index finger :P

I'd love to ban all PB links on the forum and replace them with another image.....but then I tend to be a bit EVIL at times :devlish:

Thanks for your comment about my sig. Your right I do have my hands full with the PDFs but I've got it under control. I've studied your work and one thing I wish you'd fix is your gallery. You have some work in there that belongs in the Galleria. By all means if I can be of assistance don't hesitate to ask! And I should say Welcome Back!
