  2. Nice comparison images @Vagabondi The versatility of all these plugins still amazes me... ☺️
  3. Congratulations to the winners! 1st Place: is @welshblue with 7 votes 2nd Place: is @lynxster4 with 6 votes 3rd Place: is @Pixey with 5 votes Great entries from everyone! All the pasta looked good enough to eat! 😄
  4. The Poll is now open for ‘Pasta Shape/s’. It will be closed on Saturday, May 23rd, 2020 – 2:00 pm (EST) and 7:00 pm (UK time). World Clock. Thank you, everyone, for your beautiful entries. May the best win!
  5. Happy Birthday, dear @Seerose! 💐 Hope you're back on the forum soon...we all miss you!
  6. @Foxxey Try Red ochre's Furblur. It's a large UI, but I'm sure you'll find the right settings.
  7. Yes, that is great news @Pixey. I've been wondering myself. Glad she is okay!
  8. Ha! @Vagabondi! These are great! I feel like I really am in the 'Wild, Wild West'! Fantastic job on all! I can smell the cigar smoke in the 'Poker Room'. I've said it many times already; you are so imaginative! Love them all... 😍
  9. That's what I do, welshy, so I can move it around! 😋 Sure, get a bird...what's one more mouth to feed? 🙃 (what does the upside-down face even mean?)
  10. Thank you @Eli! When I read your comment, I hoped you were talking about maybe goose, pheasant, etc...not parrots! 😆 I had a few parakeets growing up; one always sat on my shoulder and gave me 'kisses'. Thank you @Pixey! I like the 2nd one, also. The first one was done as a stained glass piece. Thank you @Vagabondi! Since you are getting familiar with ShapeMaker, let me tell you this shape has over 300 paths. It was daunting... and I wanted to show off the background...100% PDN, made into a seamless tile. I am still working on more shapes for my pack...(I seem to be obsessed...) 😋
  11. Probably. I'm still playing with @BoltBait's Object Shadow Pro. Haven't devoted a lot of time to it yet. You do need to play around with the settings quite a bit. I was being 'wild and daring'! (haha) I'll get the hang of it! Thank you for the lovely comments, welshy!
  12. Hope everyone is still well! Haven't really done much in PDN while I was off for 6 weeks. 🙄 Opted to spring clean my home instead. Got lots done...yeah! This piece is based on a shape I was working on back in January and February...finally finished it. I have two versions...can't decide which I like better. I present Parrot Paradise Hope you enjoy them! 😊 (Both are clickable)
  13. Congrats @welshblue, @Pixey and @yellowman! Great entries from all. Thank you for hosting, Pixey!
  14. @$5footslong...thanks for the great presets! I played all morning with them. They really go well with some of the 'STYLIZE' plugins for making backgrounds.
  15. I find it super ironic that you played with StickMan. When I got @ANONYMISS's reply early this morning about the SOTW topic, I immediately thought of using StickMan as a guide to what I made. 😆 Great minds think alike?... 🤔 I had fun playing with it, too. Thanks @Ego Eram Reputo! 🤪
  16. @welshblue... YOU HAVE WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON YOUR HANDS! 🤣 I love it! 😍
  17. Quite a different look @$5footslong. The 'ink' looks like they were printed in a newspaper. Very nice!

  22. Nice collection of new images @Icegodes! I like quite a few of them...keep up the good work!
  23. Going back to work on Monday (May 4th)! 😹 It was a nice 6 week vacation in which I gave my home a proper 'spring-cleaning'. At least I don't have to wear a mask at work...no interaction with the public and I have my own office. I'll just post a 'KEEP OUT' sign on my door... 🤣
