    Right now the only things I'm really interested in are graduating and making sure my son is healthy and happy.
  1. I never could get into Magic myself. I tried playing in high school (maybe that was my problem). I may try it again one of these days, if I can find anyone that plays. I've been playing D&D, Cyberpunk, and TORG recently. I am such a geek. One of the few girl gamer left in this town. HURRAY! I am done with school in less than a week. Just took my first final yesterday. I can't wait.
  2. Actually, I used Tile Reflection on purpose. I was trying to get the appearance of a glass top table. I felt it made the reflection on the table make more sense. I wasn't trying to duplicate yours or the original. I could tell that you used clouds. I also believe the original was done with a splinter blur. I was looking for something a little different.
  3. My suggestions would be to go here: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=26967 This sounds like what you need.
  4. Thanks. The funny thing is, I don't even think the first pic I used was actually Edward. I'm not sure, but I think it is Robert Pattinson from a different film entirely. That was the big reason I used a different pic the second time. Also, the color of the gradient is because of the topaz colored eyes that is supposed to be the trademark of the Cullen family. I don't know... I might look into playing with the color some more.
  5. @Kemaru: That is really beautiful. I'm not sure about the distortion (dents?) on the colored half of the picture. I agree that it probably needs something there, but I don't really care for this particular effect for this pic. It is really beautiful, though. So, my 2 year old got a hold of my twilight pic, causing a complete loss of the pdn file. I had to start over from scratch, (this time with a different Edward pic in back). I did play with the contrast and glow, as was suggested, and I also made the background pic black and white, as well as changing the background color (all black was just too dark, even for a vamp pic). Let me know what ya think. I haven't read the books, so I don't really know what might be missing. Any suggestions are welcome.
  6. Alright. So, here are two pics of me. The first one is completely unedited (at least I don't remember doing anything to it), but I couldn't help playing with the second one (which is also the more recent of the two).
  7. I just actually came to the realization that I will be graduating from college in only 3 weeks. :shock: This semester has flown by, and I'm set to graduate with honors. I'm the first person in my immediate family to even go to college. Yay. I can't wait (thought the job search probably won't be a lot of fun... LOL).
  8. Mine is pretty simple. It's just my son's first Christmas. The poor guy was asleep by 5:00pm.
  9. @cherryvamp: Very cool I love this picture. It is absolutely perfect for this kind of effect. Parts of the pic are a bit :AntiAliasingOff: , but other than that, it looks really good.
  10. @patriotsman: First pic: Very cool. I love this effect. I would probably crop out the right hand side, if it were me. I think that it looses a little bit of the effect with the black edge, but other than that it is really great work. Second pic: That is extremely disturbing, but very, very cool. I'm not sure what else to say. That smiley face may give me nightmares. :shock: Nice work. I'm not really sure if this goes here, but I am working on this for a friend, and I really need some constructive criticism or suggestions. She is a huge Twilight fan, and I want to make sure it's as good as I can make it.
  11. Very nice tutorial. Very easy to follow. I'm not sure what I'm going to use this for, but it's always nice to learn new techniques. Thanks. Here's what I came up with.
  12. Thanks for the advise. I was going to do that, but I was afraid the text might be too dark. I guess I just needed someone else to tell me. Thanks. (Love your sig, btw.)
  13. @Flow55 Very nice. I'm relatively new to this program, so it is hard for me to tell what you have done (especially without seeing the original stock) but it looks great. Nice work. So, I am working on creating my first matching sig/avatar. Please, let me know what you think, and if you have suggestions, feel free to give those as well.
  14. viewtopic.php?f=31&t=27074&hilit=different+sides+of+a+cube My sister has worked in a casino for the last 14 years, and she breeds boxers, so when I saw this tutorial I knew I had to make a custom set for her. Here's what I came up with. I'm not sure what happened with the chips, though. For some reason they don't really look like they are sitting on the table. I will have to do some work on this. EDIT: So, after a bit of work, this is what I came up with. I'm still not sure that I am happy with it, but I think it is a lot better than the last one. I love how much I have learned with this tutorial. I am learning so much about the Shapes3D plugin. I had no idea it could be used in so many ways. Thank you so much for that. @snoewite Thank you for the compliment. Yours is coming along quite well. Nice job.

    @PeterPawn: Really nice job. I like the little touch you added with the clouds. It looks great. I really enjoyed this tut. Thank you so much, Ash. I am fairly new to PDN, so I've been working on a lot of these tuts. It's nice to find one that is so easy to follow. Here's what I came up with: After reading through the discussion, I also thought I would try a moonrise using the basic concepts here.
