  1. Echo Echo is phenomenal. It is a photograph that you've manipulated? I joke. Happy New Year welshblue, I look forward to what you create in 2020 because it is always a pleasure to view, even if my jaw aches from hitting the floor.
  2. Also one that puts in such attention to detail to an image. Your second entry took me right back to when tapes were the way to record your own music. No disrespect to Pixey or Vagabondi but yours jumps out as the real deal (they've both got glaring mistakes) even down to the way the case is split into 2 at the bottom. The title is highly amusing. Our younger days of lost love, tears into the pillow and life not worth living. You mister are a credit to this software
  3. @welshblue it is amazing what you can do. My friends in the business have told me to use Photoshop because it is superior in all aspects. That is quite possibly so. It all depends on who's hands paint.net is in. That being said your manipulation is simply amazing. It is creepy and beautiful in the same breath. At the risk of incurring your wrath, and upsetting people, the fact it ranks so low on Likes - well shame on those for not recognising real talent and genius when they like mundane, not always executed well things. I bid you goodbye welshblue, as I realise this forum isn't for me. Nepotism doesn't float my boat at all. I wish you well in continuing to produce art that is an USP for this software.
  4. Thank you for the tips welshblue. Work is all consuming at this time of year therefore I haven't had any chances to practice. Is there anything you cannot do ? The animation is very well made but the Arthurian image is jaw dropping. There is such great detail and colour in it. It's very much like cold day on a Scottish Loch. There are some wonderful artists here but this is the gallery all newcomers should be pointed towards to show the versatility of the software and it's capabilities. I don't want to upset or especially anyone but there isn't much here that comes close to the photo quality of realism - detail in your images. Or your tutorials for that matter. What part of Wales are you from as I'm there for a month with work in the new year. It will be nice to be back on British soil.
  5. My deepest apologies if I offended you welshblue. I honestly didn't mean anything sinister by it, towards you or anybody else. The latest 3 images are wonderful. The oranges seem to be dripping juice. Do these images take you a long time to do ? Where do you get your ideas from ? Have you got any tips on how you achieve such realism in your pieces ? The tee shirt design is very enigmatic as well as surreal, do you sell these online ? I'm sorry if that seems like a lot of questions welshblue, but I like to ask questions in order to learn
  6. No thank you Lynxster4. I find the tutorials extremely useful for showing what results the plug ins can have, as well as achieving the desired result. A God send for people starting out. As someone in the teaching profession I think they are an important part of the forum, so thank you to all tutorial writers. With the help of yourself, Pixey and welshblue I've managed to create something 🤗
  7. I have really enjoyed looking at your images Lynxster4. Your illustrations are lovely and something I aspire to do as well as you do. There is such a great talent on this forum that it's almost intimidating to start off as a novice but then you see the way that people are so helping towards one another and the fear goes. Thank you for your tutorials, they really help.
  8. That is absolutely delightful Pixey. I have always thought that holly is one of the most beautiful plants at Christmas. Thank you for the welcome. I'm still getting the hang of the software but I have been playing with your manga tutorial. It's very enlightening.
  9. I find 3 things astonishing. 1. The level of detail you put into your images and the realism you achieve. 2. That you haven't got more images in The Galleria. No disrespect meant to any in there but your work could fill many pages of it. 3. That you don't get more Reputation points from people for the images. I hope it's not a popularity thing from a cursory look around here, when art should speak for itself above everything. I happened to show a friend who is a graphic designer your gallery and he said that your work is Photoshop quality. Especially your text work. Thank you so very much for the help by Private Message. It is very much appreciated, as were the xml files. You should really consider making a shape3d tutorial and sharing them with all
  10. What a lovely gallery you have got @Pixey @welshblue recommended this as one to look through. ( Along with @lynxster4 and @HELEN) I am a children's author and because my current illustrator has fallen ill, I am looking for inspiration and tips to do my own work. This falls into the inspirational category.
  11. @welshblue I don't know who EER is but that is shop bought no? How do you get such realism and life into your images. I have spent time looking at your works and I am amazed that a free software can emulate these things.I'm astounded at your skill level and creativity I saw your kind offer in the discussion thread and I would love to have some files as I want to learn as much as I can. Is my email address better for you ? Aspiring Artist
  12. @BoltBait & @welshblue thank you both. I will persevere with your suggestions this coming week. Shape3D looks very daunting but having had an initial go, I can already see the benefits when wanting to tilt things and keep clarity. Does it matter which 'face' to keep ?
  13. Sorry if this is in the wrong place but it's a question about entries. @welshblue how do you get rotate/ zoom to maintain it's shape and definition like you have on 2 of your images ? When I use it the images lose definition or distorts strangely on some settings. Also how do you get your images so crisp ? I'm relatively new to this but my images are never so sharp. For example your first notebook could be a photograph.
