  5. Overview This plugin lets you use dynamic brushes with custom shapes. It's good for drawing effects, textures, and redundant objects like grass. It can be used like a spray can or be used to draw symmetrically. Adapted from TechnoRobbo's Dodgeburn plugin, Pyrochild's context menu, and improved by Null54. Interface The plugin is full-screen when run and looks like this: There are four tabs. The default one is on the left and you can click the names of the other tabs to switch to them. Each tab has its own settings. The first tab shows static

  33. This plugin applies shading to a texture defined by a height map, and also applies various displacement modes to an image that's mapped onto the texture.. The height map is a black and white image. Normally black represents 0 and white represents the maximum height, but this can be reversed. I know there are plugins that do similar things (so you don't need to tell me) but I believe this plugin has more features. It certainly has plenty of controls. The plugin is under "Effects>Height Map>Texture Shader." ("Look for the golden orb!") ==================================

  38. Hi all! I'm an author who is super-duper slow with writing due to two young children and a full-time job on top of that, but I'm making my way toward "The End". One of the things they say for self-publishers is don't design your own covers, but I'm cheap and I enjoy creating art and I decided to anyways. My covers have seen many stages, from playing around with the twist tool in paint.net to get my base symbols, to the final product they are now. Everything I know about graphic design has been self-taught through tutorials and getting input from other people as to what works and what doesn't.

I'm a fan of military modeling and designs and use Paint.NET to draw and shade the various vehicles and pixel/sprite style soldiers I make.
