  1. BoltBait, why bother taking another image when you can just CSI enhance it? Just get the image, push a couple of buttons while you say "enhance the image" and done. You can actually get 1440p full HD photos from a single coloured picture..

    Thanks Seerose! I've added another one which is similar, but a marked improvement.
  3. Image Umbrella: Desktop Art

    Holy wow, that's neat. I like it a lot, nice an simple. The shadows and lighting are spot-on.

    I don't think I dithered anything - what you're seeing is a roughened vignette, for that 'grunge' effect. There is also definitely smoke there, but it's probably not as noticeable as the other plumes. Yours is pretty good, it does look a lot like cross-stitch. Perhaps duplicate the layer twice, add noise, motion blur the first up, the second across, blend layers. The best blend mode seems to be 'Darken'. It adds a little more 'thread-y' texture to it.

    First Tokyo, next THE WORLD.

    Nothing. The store ran out of pellets.

    Long hiatus, but I'm back. Here is my new image, 'Gonirra'
  8. Image Umbrella: Image Modification/Manipulation

    Not bad! Perhaps the front 'engine' bit isn't required, and maybe the rear one could be enlarged. Looks neat though, keep it up! Here's one I was commisioned to do. It's my sister's guinea pig attacking Tokyo. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/236475228/gonirra.png

    Nice! They look like the MegaTowers from Simcity. I hope they're more profitable!
  10. How to avoid layer 'cut off'?

    A good rule of thumb is to start with a large canvas and work downwards. It's much, much more difficult to start with a small canvas and work outwards.
  11. Looks great! Glad you found what you were looking for!
  12. Image Umbrella: Abstract Images

    Time to revive this with my latest abstract:

    Sure thing, I'll work on it after my Physics exam this afternoon!
  14. How to do isometric?

    You might want to try using the Oblique plugin, which lets you skew objects. http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/2524-oblique-effect-plugin-ymd100714/ I think true isometric angle is 30 degrees, so when you have the plugin, follow these steps: Duplicate the layer. Use the Oblique plugin to skew the fence. (You may need to do this on a larger canvas, since if the image goes off the edge it will wrap around.) The numbers you're looking for probably have something to do with 30 degrees, mess around and see if you can get it perfect. Let me know if you need any other help!
