  1. I apologize if I'm resurrecting a dead thread, but I just found this thread the other day and thought I'd post my pic, edited in paint.net with the very cool Portrait effect and a bit of glow. This forum has become my new favorite place to visit in Internet-land. Thanks!
  2. Okay, I made two very different weather sigs, but my kids overwhelmingly chose this one as the one I should submit...go figure. It's a little amateur-ish, but I couldn't go against the popular vote. The only stock images I used were a few prairie dogs from google image search. Links are here: http://www.jeffblaylock.com/window/photos/0181.jpg http://www.schmode.net/prairiedog001.jpg http://www.backfromthebrink.org/speciesimages/14/1_utah_prarie_dog.jpg http://hoglezoo.org/animal.photos/utah.prairie.dog1.jpg
  3. You know what I DO like? I love that people on this forum actually know what correct grammar is. I also play World of Warcraft (although much less since I've found Paint.net) and the grammar and spelling of most WoW players is abysmal. It's so refreshing to be online with intelligent-sounding people. Thanks!
  4. Stephan, love the text effect, and the whole package works very well together. 7.5/10
  5. That was beautiful! Thanks for sharing it.
  6. I think the perspective looks a bit off, and the text could be in better font. Other than that, I think it looks really nice.

    GEMSTONE V2 !

    Okay, this one I used erode/dilate, but did a few other steps first. 1. Black canvas. 2. Add noise, intensity 100, color 0. 3. Oil Painting, all setting at lowest possible. (like making a starfield kind of). 4. Then dilate, highest intensity, triangle. 5. Then color tint. I came up with this. Here's the finished product. I'm not entirely happy with the highlights. Oh well, I was in a hurry.

    GEMSTONE V2 !

    So Ash, when you say post the base image, what do you mean exactly? Like what I started with before I added all the effects & shadows? If so, this is approximately what I started with. If that's not what you wanted, let me know. I'm working on one trying the erode/dilate effect. Will keep you posted. Ha ha.

    GEMSTONE V2 !

    Okay, after monkeying with this tut for most of the evening, I've come up with this. I'm pretty happy with it...didn't use the erode/dilate to make the base image. I found that always turned out too light. Instead I used the gradient/lasso and flip repeatedly method, then tinted it. Anyway, any suggestions, oh gem master?
  10. I think maybe the lion and the diamond could be brightened slightly? Maybe made a tad bit more obvious? It's kinda muddy-looking. Dunno, I really like the background and the font though, I agree.
  11. Nice, very polished-looking. I will try this tonight. Here it is...turned out very nice I think.
  12. 6/10. Funny? I like the buildup of the progress bar...
  13. Ooh, I like that. Very abstract - neat use of dents.
  14. Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but you end up going nowhere.
  15. Hi, so I created this for fun...all made of WoW screenshots and PDN. The character in the middle is a druid, a shapeshifter, and I tried to convey that. What do you guys think? Any suggestions? Thanks.
  16. Tagalog or Filipino is my guess on that last language (ostensibly from the Philippines).

  18. I can't believe I'm spending my time reading this! (and enjoying it to boot)

  20. I love your sig...reminds me of an impressionist painting, but done with glossy paint. Nice color choices...lovely. 9.5/10
