  1. Neat method, Seerose! I love eggs!
  2. Oops, I've just noticed that with so much excitement I've neglected to personally thank some of the congrats I've received, namely by Seerose and barbieq and Eli and chimay. I'm so sorry... I should have paid more attention but I was so happily distracted! So, thanks a lot —again— to Seerose, barbieq, Eli, and the super competition host chimay Big smooch and bear hugs to each and everyone!
  3. Thank you very much, Cc4FuzzyHuggles! All feedback is very much enriching for this budding artist
  4. Thank you all very much, Pxey, Dale, and Helen! I still can't believe it! (Sorry if I seem too emotional about this, but I haven't had reasons to celebrate in quite a long time )
  5. I won my first Paint.NET contest ever! :O ^_^

  6. Oh, wow! I'm so happy! It's the very first time I win an online contest and I'm so shocked, and even more surprising being a new member! Very many thanks from the bottom of my heart to all those who voted for my work! Your support is highly appreciated! And many congrats to the runners-up and to all other participants as well. My eyes delighted in all sigs posted here
  7. Thank you all for the warm welcomes; so nice to meet you all here! I'm enjoying myself as a forum member!
  8. That's probably the case, but I think it's still important to address these matters from time to time in case reluctant, though potential, users might change their minds one day after reconsidering all we've been saying, hopefully (supposing they ever check up on this thread in future)
  9. To everything that has been said so far, with which I totally agree, I will add that Ms Paint won't take you places that Paint.NET can take you if you really want to be a digital artist. This site is safe and the download areas, both for the application and the plugins, are safe as well. I've been using Paint.NET for over 5 years now and never ever had a virus alert, so I know what I'm saying. I also highly recommend Adblock Plus and ESET Smart Security if you are really worried about intrusive ads and infections (not that I mean to advertise products, just saying what has worked wonders for me and my computer to this day).
  10. A very creative outcome! Maybe it can even be used to create fog. I should try that, since fog is somehow similar to clouds.
  11. I often wonder why it took me so long to join the Paint.NET forum. It seems a lovely community! :)

  12. I've had a special affection for the Kolobok smilies for a good while now. Here are a few of the ones I regularly use:
  13. Simple and effective! I've used other methods to render smoke, but this one gives the smoke a more wispy look. Quite appealing to play with! Ammo bays depleted and muzzles hot during the battle, all PdN (including the aircraft, from the times when I was exploring the possibilities of the Shape3D plugin):
  14. Thank you both! @CC4FuzzyHuggles: I think a good part of being an artist consists of being a player and somehow all (or most) players are artists. We create new things by playing with the new and the old, or something like that @chimay12321: I'll try to be as active as possible! This is the first time I take part in a visual arts contest. How exciting!
  15. Very many thanks from me too! I've been using these and other tutorials for so many years and it's really convenient to have a few of them packed into one pdf
  16. What a lovely tutorial, and so highly detailed! Thanks for the super great work!
  17. Thank you both, racerx and Pixey!
  18. Thank you! I'm so glad an accomplished artist likes my humble contribution!
  19. This is one of the first tutorials I followed back in the days when I had just discovered PdN. It's good to see it active again
  20. Hi everyone! It seems my first submission as a forum member has been my humble contribution to the SOTW #124 contest. Really cute works I've seen there!
  21. Thank you very much for the warm welcome, Pratyush!
  22. Hello everyone! I'm one of the newest members and this is my first post! I've been using Paint.NET since as far back as 2010, lurking moslty in the tutorials and plugins sections as a guest, and it ocurred to me it was about time to create an account. I'm looking forward to participating as frequently as possible. So nice becoming an official newbie!
