  1. Okay, let me say something.


    I like both works, somehow I have to be fair. In this case, I'm treating signatures like shops' signboards. It needs clarity to stand out and showing the corporate identity of the shop.

    At the same time, I'm using seven elements of arts ( Lines, Space, Tone, Colours, Textures, Shapes & Forms ) and principles of designing ( Balance, Contrast, Emphasis, Movement, Pattern, Rhythm, Unity )  'penalty shoot-out' to decide the winner. 







    Line (s )- Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Space- Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Tone - Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Colours- Limon 1 DrewDale 1

    Shapes- Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Form- Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Textures- Limon 1 DrewDale 0


    Balance- Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Contrast-Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Emphasis-Limon 0 DrewDale 1

    Movement-Limon 1 DrewDale 0

    Pattern-Limon 0 DrewDale 0

    Rhythm-Limon 0 DrewDale 0

    Unity- Limon 0 DrewDale 1




    So, in Elements Of Arts Limon 2 DrewDale 6, and Principles Of Designing Limon 1 DrewDale 4. Speaking about the clarity of the signature, it goes to DrewDale.


    So far I give DrewDale a fair winning this time.


    Latest results : Limon 1 - DrewDale 1

  2. Dear Lynxster, Remake, Red Ochre, Maximilian, Nai, Dryda and Helen 




    Thank you all so much for your lovely comments :D .


    @Nai, I really based this on your tutorial but without the 3D, as I found drawing the ice cubes individually gave a better shape.  Then I basically followed your tutorial.  I will attach two PDN's to give you the general idea of how I went about it.


    P.S.  I am unable too add the zip files at the moment ?  I can't find the Attachments area?  I'll try later.


    Instead here are the PDN's  in Dropbox.

    Thank you, Pixey !

  3. That

    Here are two examples of what I mentioned in my previous post. Stencils can also be made with Red ochre's Two Tone Threshold, but the method is different of course. With this plugin I select black as the color, and set the brightness slider to some value around the middle or quite below the middle. It's good to have another plugin to do stencils :)


    Example 1:




    Example 2:



    Wow ! I'm agreeing with you that this plugin has many purposes

  4. If necessary, but it's essentially just duplicating the texture layer three times, then running Shape3D with the same setup on each layer, except checking only Bottom on one layer, Right (or Left, depending on the cube orientation) on another layer, and Back on the third layer. Now each layer can have the brightness, contrast, saturation, etc. changed, and also the blend modes and transparency. Alternately, the layers can simply be used to obtain the selections for each region, rather than having to create them by hand. My original point, such as it was, is that it's probably easier to let Shape3D determine the shape of the back surfaces than to do it with manual selections.

    Thanks ! Updates

    will be available as soon as possible.

  5. This is probably not the same thing. In the next few days I 'll look into this question.

    Yup, it's something from Adobe PS. 


    Anyway, I've tried to adapt high-key glow PS tutorial using white and grey options, and it's give almost similar results. :-)


  6. Thanks for the feedback, MJW !


    It can be achieved by adjusting the transparency of the object, checked that transparency box and adjust the transparency around 185-183.


    However, we're still needing Step 6 & Step 7 to create the back face and the base of the ice cube. Because we need different level of brightness and darkness to create that effect.

  7. This is the plugin I'm waiting for ! 


    Here are what happened when I'd rather use color range to do Pleasantville Effects :




    ( Using Black & White Effect on selected area )




    It's better than using magic wand alone. Look at what happened when I 'blew up' the picture to 200 % zoom :






    Still fine and no grotty colour gap/border which always happened when I used magic wand only. 


    With this plugin, Paint.NET is able to do the things that Adobe PS does. Congratulations, ReMake !
