  1. All the Trophies were awesome. Congrats to the winners! 💐 Thank you to @Pixey for hosting!
  2. Wonderful @Seerose! I love that Rodilius plugin, too. All are good, but #2 stands out!
  3. Another dark one from the mind of @welshblue! 😨 Where do you get your ideas?? Love it!
  4. @Reptillian I use Emboss-Relief quite a bit. You can get some interesting effects in color mode depending on the image you use. Thanks for updating!
  5. Lovely purse @Seerose You'll find other uses for the leather texture, I'm sure. What stunners @Pixey If I could wear high-heeled shoes again, I'd buy them. Much more comfortable in my flats. You put a lot of detail into them! Beautiful logo @DrewDale The horse kinda looks familiar? Nice job with the two different tints of blue and the outline. Thank you all for the rep points and thank you to @ReMake @Maximilian and @Woodsy for also repping! Special thanks to @Woodsy for attaching a PDF file. 💐
  6. Wonderful. Here's a write-up that I found online, here. Didn't say much else that you didn't already say in your post, but it's nice to be recognized.
  7. I'm sure something will come up and you will need that leather @Seerose 😄 (make a purse!) Thank you for trying the tutorial, you're a dear!
  8. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download the PDF Here is an alternate way to create a realistic leather texture. Adapted from one of the many PS tutorials out there. We will be making the 'base' texture and adding color to it. Plugins needed: NomBot's Tesserae Built-in Clouds plugin Red's Gradients Galore Null54's G'mic-Qt An example I quickly made to demonstrate the texture: Enjoy this alternate way of making leather textures!
  9. @Seerose My Bart! Thank you, he is wonderful!
  10. That was fun! Thanks for the video @Pixey

  12. Thank you @ReMake! This will come in handy. 🍰
  13.

The Moon never looked prettier! I've tossed a coin for the ultimate winner and @Pixey won! Congrats!
  14. I really like that @AndrewDavid! That surely would make a beautiful screensaver.
  15. You go girl! Those images are beautiful @Seerose! Definitely worthy of hanging. 😻
  16. I'd be up for that. I think it's a great idea! 😉
  17. Thank you @welshblue, @Seerose, @Pixey and @Maximilian for the lovely comments! I'm going to continue experimenting with this as I'm still on my 'sewing' kick.
  18. What a glorious chess set @welshblue! So shiny and reflective. Also, love the draperies. A beautiful contrast of textures you have going on. Wonderful work!
  19. That bites the big one @dipstick! I hope you are able to financially retire. Losing a job at our age, it isn't so easy finding a new one. And you've got about 4 years to go till you can 'collect' at 62.
  20. Here's a recent play with the modified Cell-CS Maker plugin I posted in @welshblue's Cross Stitch Text and Canvas thread. This took about 5 hours. It's a pansy flower.
  21. Happy Birthday @xod! Hope you have a GREAT day! 🎂
  22. Sorry it took me so long to try this @welshblue I got waylaid by cross-stitching. 🤣 Excellent tutorial. Here's my take on it: Lampshade pattern is my own made with @toe_head2001 's Tartan plugin. I re-purposed your lamp texture for my table. The lamp is 'on'.
  23. The Poll is now open for ‘The Moon as Seen from the Earth'. It will be closed on Saturday, March 16th, 2019 - 2 pm EDT and 7 pm UK time. World Clock. Thank you, everyone, for your beautiful entries. May the best win!
  24. Love your 'silky' materials @welshblue Very nice! With @Ego Eram Reputo's permission, I'm posting a revised CellMaker dll which adds a spacing slider for the x's. EER looked over my revisions and gave me a few tips on how to simplify it. Thank you EER! This will also appear in the Effects-->Test menu. It's just something for us to play around with until EER rewrites the code. Cell-CS Maker Rev1.dll Save to your computer and copy or move it into your PDN Effects folder. Have fun!
