  1. These are my attempts! I probably rushed it a bit and next time will take more care over the colours and form.
  2. Great tutorial! Thank you. Here's my attempt: It took me a while and I think I'll need more practice on the flow lines and other bits but I'm relatively pleased with the results.
  3. I tried it for a day. I love the non clutter, it's looks clean and fresh. I like the one box to search and insert site addresses. I don't like the fact that when you close the last tab, the whole browser closes. I don't like the spell checker thing. I typed "ok" and it had a red line with no way to add to the dictionary and the alternatives that came up were nothing like the word "ok". I hope there will be options to change the colour scheme. For me, it seems FF is faster. I don't ever use IE anymore so haven't compared it with that. I'm a creature of habit So maybe I'll have to use it a bit more to get used to it but for now, I much prefer FF as the add-ons I have and the general habit-stuff is hard to beat

    I love the work in progress shots The pineapple looks like it's coming on really well. I look forward to seeing the final image My favourite of yours though, is your signature. It's beautiful!
  5. Geertjee ~ Thank you one_witch ~ Thank you I can't remember how I blended it now pestilence ~ I'm sure I'm new Thank you The tutorial for the blood one is by the-silent-9, here
  6. Hey there I'm quite new to Paint.net but have been following tutorials and finding my way around the program. The tutorials are a fantastic way to learn and produce some really good effects. So thank you to those who take time to write them I thought I'd be brave and show some of my work so I could get some feedback as to where I'm going right and wrong So here's what I've done so far (quite a few, didn't realise how many!): From various tutorials: Adding some different effects: Waterdrop: Black & White: Exploding Planets: Chrome: Roses: Kiosk Orb: Fire: Insides: Blood: Cross: Eyes: Gel button: Signatures: Abstracts made not following tutorials: These below, were made using my own non-computer generated artwork, as the background: And that's (finally ) it. I hope you enjoy
  7. I once ate a battered, deep fried Mars bar....it was....interesting! Not something I wish to repeat though I've just discovered Oreos....they're kinda new over here (where I live, at least) and they are so yummy with milk! My favourite and "speciality" is: Chicken breast, chopped bacon, diced carrots, chopped broccoli, garlic and diced onion: All cooked in a pan and then double cream added for a few minutes at the end of cooking time, to coat it. Mixed and eaten with pasta...it's yummy! A bit fattening but it has vegetables in it to cancel that out!
  8. I have a MySpace account that I don't use anymore. I have a Facebook account that I do use. I'm an "online" person. I embrace being able to chat, learn, have fun etc through my laptop. Some people may see that as "sad" or whatever but it suits me. I enjoy it. I'm not hurting anyone. I live on my own, I've moved about quite a bit and only have a few friends I see on a regular basis. That will probably change once I'm more settled but for now, I enjoy wasting my time online MySpace, for me, was always more for band info and checking out new music. I got fed up of the constant friend requests and other "stuff" on there so I don't use it anymore. I use Facebook quite a lot. I have friends all over the country and it's not possible to see them as much as I'd like so we keep in contact through that. I know, there is such thing as a telephone, but I don't have a landline and mobile charges are high, so that isn't really an option! I do like the new layout. So many people seem to not like it but I prefer more space and cleaner lines. I don't like pages to be too cluttered. The people on my FaceBook friends list are all people I actually know, it includes friends, family and old work colleagues. For me, it's not about popularity or how many "friends" I can gather, it's a genuine way to keep in contact with people and have a bit of fun. Throughout my "online life" I've found a fair few people to be quite snobbish about networking sites and/or forums. I see more and more people who show their derision to people who interact on social networking sites/forums. There seems to be a bit of a backlash but I'm sure people will find something else to hate soon enough Of course, everyone is entitled to their opinion. The great thing about them is that they differ
  9. Yeah, I know. I'll stop with my humour now
  10. Oh my! I've not been here long but it's great to see what people look like and match names to faces There are sooo many young (and some not so ), talented people here! When I was young(er) we didn't even have a PC! At school we had those old BBC computers Anyway, here's me (I'm 27), edited with PDN using B&W and some glow, I think: I have new hair now (a fringe :shock:) but don't have any semi-decent pics
  11. Hehe! I got a bearded man (wouldn't like to even guess who ) In fact, I'm still seeing him 3 minutes afterwards!
  12. ^ Is correct < Is eating IceCream even though it's 01:01. \/ Should be in bed, asleep.
  13. I'm off to check out Last.FM now Edit: The "similar" thing is a bit like what's on Pandora as far as I can tell.
  14. On my playlist: Kings of Leon - *ahem* on Fire (The *ahem* is for a word associated with copulating but maybe not family friendly ? ! ) Korn - Freak on a Leash Linkin Park - Lots of songs Scouting for Girls - Lots of songs The Fray - How to save a life GooGoo Dolls - Iris and many more but I've lost the will to type them all
  15. You can't sleep because the work you produced earlier needs more work and sleep will interrupt the flow! Or, you just don't want to go to sleep because you're enjoying playing around with things and learning. They're my excuses anyway! :oops:
  16. MarshmallowGherkin ~ I really like the first image - it looks dreamy-like (or what my dreams look like!) This is my first post in the Pictorium I'm a newb to all this but I've been following lots of tutorials and am enjoying learning. I followed a tutorial by MadJik and added a load of my own bits to it...I like the outcome so thought I'd share it here. Sorry if it's a bit amateur! Let me know what you think? e.g. Are my eyes sooo blurry that I'm seeing good when it's rubbish?
  17. Firstly, I'm not sure I'm allowed to "bump" this thread seeing as it's quite old now? At least it's from this year! Secondly: I love this tutorial! I've been looking to do something like this for aaaaages. So thank you very much! Easy to follow and great results. I've been messing around a lot with my final image and came up with these: My original following tutorial: Changed colours: Added water reflection: Inside Out: Tile reflection (looks kinda like a jewellery box - Not that I'd know much about that! ):
  18. Here's mine: It's a Vista theme on XP. Bit boring but it'll do for now, until I find something nicer!
  19. Mine is just my first name and surname initial. Zzzzzz I wish I'd been a bit more creative with it but I wanted to join up and couldn't think of anything original at the time
  20. Custom Build, if not which company? Sony Vaio PGC-FX101 Laptop or Desktop: Laptop OS: Windows XP Pro 2002 Version. Processor: Intel Celeron processor 596 MHz Motherboard: ?? Video/Graphics: Digital Flat Panel on IntelĀ® 82815 32 MB 24-bit How much HD space? 9.35 gigs How much RAM? 320 MB Apparently not very good. But it works unlike 2 of my other laptops stored away "somewhere"!
  21. Thanks for the Tutorial! I attempted it but I think it's a bit too advanced for me yet OnlyMe is a name I use on some other forums
  22. Oh I like that a lot, Atze Peng. I did something similar but my laptop crashed and I lost it....silly me for not saving!

    Kiosk Orbs!

    Thank you for a great and very detailed tutorial! I've been at it for about 2 hours now I didn't put anything in the orb yet but I will have a go later! I think I went a bit wrong as there is a black bar at the top (no idea where that came from ), the middle chrome bit isn't continuous and part of my middle circle got chopped off!. I think I'll have another go when I'm not so brain-dead!
