  1. Notaulophobic, the planet's reflection looks like a marshmallow! Everybody else (including Notaulophobic), beautiful work. I'd better get working...
  2. Very nice Quasi... I will definitely try this.
  3. Cute...my favorite was Bertbert. Classic! This should be fun...
  4. So for the newbies around here, can we have some background on this Jerbert character? All I know about him is that he sports a rather inane grin and has an abiding love for ice cream sandwiches. Thanks!
  5. So has anyone else noticed a real drop in page load time on these forums in the last day or two? It's driving me crazy... Is there something I can fix here? Other pages load just fine, and this forum has worked great for me for at least a month prior to now. Thanks.
  6. Things I think my older kids could do in Paint.NET (they're 6 and 8 ) : 1. Use paintbrush and color palette, and draw a picture. Then run cool effects on the picture, like dents, frosted glass, bulge, etc. 2. Using 2 fun colors, use the clouds effect. Make a new layer, and draw something fun. 3. Open a preexisting picture and run the Shape 3D plugin to make shapes. 4. Follow the "Scratch Its" tutorial http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=5254. Good luck!

  8. Can you post a pic of what you mean?
  9. Note to self... if Myrddin starts getting chummy, time for change of address.
  10. Something is very screwy with your avatar spot...taking up half my screen. Regarding your sig, I like the background, and the half face is cool. But if the hand and the face belong to each other, than the skin color is off, and the hand seems too far from the face. Still, nice, esp. for a Trekkie like me. 8/10
  11. Good job...put a little radial blur on that, and some dents, maybe a clouds layer, and you've got yourself a crackerjack tutorial!
  12. There's a door, it just has to remain shut until you use your one chance to go in and look. And no, you can't see light from under the door.
  13. Another one that's not technially a riddle. How can you draw this image in one continuous line (with a pencil/pen, not Paint.NET ) without crossing any lines or doubling back over any previously-drawn lines?
  14. Okay. There is a room with no windows. Inside this room are 3 lightbulbs. Outside the room, 3 switches that activate these lightbulbs. You can do whatever you want with the switches, but how can you tell which switch activates which lightbulb by going in and checking the room only once? (No leaving the door open or any tricks.)
  15. The dog waits until January when the river freezes over. Meanwhile, the man gets tired of waiting, leaves and buys himself a cat, who is smarter than to get anywhere near the river. The End.
  16. Yeah, you're going to have to take multiple screenshots, and put them into some kind of .gif animator. I agree that it'd be easier to find a place with a smoother, less busy background if you can. I've tried something similar with World of Warcraft, which I assume is similar to Neverwinter Nights. There is actually a program out there called WoWModelViewer, that has all the objects/characters/armor sets from WoW and renders them for you, and even animates them on any background you choose (including transparent.) You can customize the render to make it match your character. Depending on the popularity of your game, there may be something out there like WoWModelViewer, which would make your life a LOT easier. I find that grabbing screenshots in-game do not make the best image files, so you may end up a little disappointed with your gif's quality. Good luck though, and be sure to show us the end result!
  17. Psychedelic! The only suggestion I have is to feather the text a bit. Nice. 8/10
  18. Someone really, really likes Britney.
