  1. Yes, the date threw me too. Mother's Day is Sunday 13 May 2018 here in Australia.


    What a great mum! Your artwork is truly frameworthy :D I have framed some of mine & given them to my mum & step-mum. Others I have used for cards or book covers. Hopefully you will use more of your awesome art for making the world that much prettier.

    I'd love to see the finished room. 


    @lynxster4the Pearls & Roses is just awesome! I'd hang those up too!

  2. Realistic images I have never been fond of creating. Therefore I don't enter but support others by voting.


    OOTF rules - being realistic images - is very hard for most people. As for trace & colour comments, this is probably exactly why there are so few entries. I have seen the PDN file Pixey was working on. Technically challenging is an understatement. Those that have managed to create something realistic, are to be applauded.

  3. I've heard this before...there is a reason Pixey was voted Queen of Paint.NET. Pixey's work really is that good. I've seen very few artists who can create a realistic image without a reference image. Have you seen the amount of layers that she used? My guess is that some had even been merged. 


    The way Pixey has worked is very valid & I work that way too sometimes. It is a fabulous shoe & image. I enjoyed looking at the different layers & marvelled at her skill. Well done Pixey!

  4. As always you've captured the emotion so well. There is a lot going on in the image. Very nice work with the cobwebs on the text. The butterfly is a bit jaggy on the edges which is fairly appropriate for fibromyalgia unfortunately. Well done with the textures & the colour - gotta love that!


    Very sorry to hear that it's been giving you such grief. I sure hope it lets up soon. 


    You do the space scenes very well. Love to see more from you.
