  1. @yy10 There's nothing about it that sucks. Your use of unfocus in the background gives depth to the negative space. And the water bubbles rising above the jellyfish look like water bubbles. How did you do this?
  2. @ ShadowStalker, Altair is too mysterious. Your image says nothing less about him. The way he seems to come out of nothing. Nice work.
  3. Lord have mercy, I didn't think this tut would ever end. However, if I ever did have any issues on using the "move selection" tool effectively, they have been resolved. Highly explanatory and detailed tutorial, this was so worth the time it took to make this image. There is so much that can be done with this image though, guess it's going to be my latest obsession. Thank you Oma.
  4. This tut shows how simple that creating visually striking images can be. Thank you Mayor McSteeze. The first of my images is what happened when I set the top layer's blend mode to difference, bottom layer to lighten, and then merged the layers. The second image you see here is what happened when I set the layers blend mode to lighten, and merged them together.

    Wormholes

    There isn't a whole lot that goes into making an image like this. Guess I made it harder than it had to be. Although I was a little confounded where the instructions state to "make the secondary color's opacity 0," I am happy with the outcome here. Thank you sir for the fine tut. http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae354/schmang/wormhole.png
  6. Duly noted Himself22. Your comments are appreciated. Especially the reference to creativity. That was what I was going for.
  7. Hi everyone. I haven't any kind of time to do this since I started college four months ago. Anyway, I wanted to see if I still knew my way around paint.net. The pictures are on the large side of the canvas size. To be honest, I didn't want to have images where a huge tv is needed to view them, kind of like my 52" LCD Hope you all enjoy. http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae354/schmang/starsclouds.png http://i987.photobucket.com/albums/ae354/schmang/galaxy.png
  8. Thank you very much jerry533482. I been looking for something like this tutorial as well. As suggested, I did modify some of the steps. After I was done with Layer 3, I duplicated that particular layer, employed Displacement, then set the blend mode to Color Dodge, opacity at 186. Hidden Content:
  9. This makes me wonder if I can make a PS3 Theme using this tut with the animation to go along with it. Thank you author.
  10. Hey everyone, happy holidays to ya. Awhile ago, a few people suggested that I make a new avatar. Ok, I can do that. Weeks later, i'm done with it. This image doesn't really reflect anything. But I do have to say thast it reminds me of the screen that comes up when a Playstation 2 is turned on. Also, it reminds me of one of the Polantia's (did I spell that right?) from Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers. Anyway, hope everyone enjoys it. And as usual, comments are wanted here as Graphic Design is what i'll be earning a degree for in college. Hidden Content:
  11. Call Of Duty sig makes me want to go out and get that game. Maybe I will after I get through PS3 Red Faction. All of your work is nice brother.
  12. Something I came up with awhile ago, love it or hate it
  13. Not only does this tut display how to make something graphically beautiful, it also screams the importance of layers. Thank you so much author Hidden Content:
  14. I didn't exactly know where I was going with this image, but whatever
  15. Someone suggested that I come up with a new, kooler avatar. Well, it didn't work out like that This is what did get worked out.
  16. Well, it is somewhat original However, to combine an image of the Good Lord with elements from Call Of Duty just seems.......... My God, I don't know what to say :? FatCanadian, maybe you and I can collaborate on a PS3 or XBox theme?
  17. Hey everyone. 2 things i'm happy about: In January, I start college. I'll be taking graphic arts and multimedia, graduating with a bachelor's degree in a little under 3 years. That is if I can keep up the stamina to handle full-time, non-stop. Last week, after saving what little cash I can, I came home with a 52" HDTV. Somehow, Wal-Mart must have made a mistake in listing this model of Sharp on the internet wrong. This particular tv is normally listed at over $1500, online it was listed at $899. Anyway, after not sleeping for about 2 days in my excitement, I picked it up got home, hooked up the PS3. Wouldn't you know it, about 30 minutes after, I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore. Happy Thanksgiving paintdotnet community
  18. I followed all the steps to a T, then used a Gaussian Blur at 1, then used Color Flip/Rotate. Final result is as posted.
  19. Rather than using mud as our talented author did, I used stones.
  20. Hey everyone. Little help here if you please. I put together this image as a theme. Unfortunately, it suffers from being stretched when viewed at 640x480 resolution. Can anyone help me out to keep the resolution, while shrinking the image's dimensions (height/width)? Thanks everyone.
  21. The film effect caused paint.net to shut down on me.
  22. Personally, I didn't care for the light horizontal fill aspect so I left it alone. This is what I came up with.
  23. I'll go through this a 3rd time when I get home from work. Maybe I missed something.
  24. It's funny how something so relatively simple can be a lot of fun to do. After going through the tutorial on how to make a glass ball, I decided to do something of a similiar nature with using Gaussian Blur and the Motion Blur effects.
