  4. BlastWave's Gallery - Coffee Break

    Ahhh - I just saw the Prague image - a lovely piece . I too liked visiting Prague, but some time ago now when it was still communist. We had the best Chimney cake there . Coffee Break is just lovely too the colors are superb
  5. Oh Boy - they are both gorgeous @lynxster4 but I absolutely love the text in the first one. Did you make it to look 3D? It's fabulous - really . Hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday Season
  6. Yes, you can create an image like the lion - which will require a bit of work. 1. You could use either the line/curve tool, or the Shape Maker, which is a bit advanced and requires some time and effort and practice. ^ Clickable Here is a video of how to use Shape Maker 2. Once you have your outline, then you will need to paint it. Lastly, you could always trace it by hand, import the traced image into Paint.net, then color it. Good luck with your venture .
  7. The theme this week is – "Christmas/Holiday Garland " Chosen by @lynxster4 (SOTW #177 winner) This week you're challenged to design and create a signature as ‘A Christmas/Holiday Garland’. Anything can be included on the garland, like bows, bells, lights, pinecones, etc. The deadline for entries is 7:00pm (UK time) 2:00pm EST on Saturday 23rd of December 2017. To see how that equates to other countries, here is a link to the World Time Competition Rules Max dimensions are 500 x 200. Please NOTE: The forum limits signatures to 500 x 150, if it is too large do not try to use it as your regular signature. Please keep your signature family friendly. Please keep to the theme that has been set. You may modify or replace your image until the deadline! Don’t violate copyright laws with found images; links to source images would be courteous. Your entry must be made using Paint.net; please don't use an outside image editor and try passing it off as PDN work. There are three entries per entrant allowed. Don’t add links to larger versions of your signature. Your entry should be voted on based on the size laid out in rule #1. Please keep larger versions of your work for your gallery. Signatures may be either horizontal or vertical. The winner of the current SOTW gets to choose the subject for the next competition. Good luck all and thank you in advance for entering.

    Oh OOOOO - I totally missed the Dart Board until now. It's a very realistic piece indeed - well done you I used to be an avid player myself, but have not been in many Pubs recently to have a go. I do remember though, when I quit a job that I hated and had a party afterwards - and invited all the others who hated the Boss from Hell too, we attached a photo of her on the dart board and threw the darts at her with great joy. I expect some folks will think this was awful, but you didn't know this Boss from Hell
