  1. Thats what i do now, "using the little knob thingys to invert it" wasn't a very good description hahaha
  2. A little thing i thought that could be useful in PDN 4, as i am aware there isn't an in built feature for flipping a selection, without cutting it out and flipping the layer and then moving it back into place, or using the little knob thingys to invert it. Just a thought
  3. Great stuff from Welshblue, Barbieq, Pixey, Skullbonz and Dug! Great technical execution with these!
  4. Thanks! In my experience it doesn't really feel like an Alpha build, i have only come across one error! It is a massive improvement over 3! There isnt a way that im currently aware of to keep the old version when installing 4 so id wait till things settle (I have the portable version of 3.5 though, just incase)
  5. Disabling Anti Aliasing might help in the future aswell
  6. First image made with PDN4!!!!!!
  7. Pretty sure im not alone when i say i just wet myself a little. Installing it now, backed up the current version just incase things go pear shaped Gonna post up my first PDN 4 image soon
  8. To be honest, im not really too fussed, anything that iv put online i have been very careful with, most of my very personal details are just faked. And in reality, what has google got on people that they want to be private?
  9. Really love the angel wings, i will definatly be using these in a photomanipulation one day!
  10. Great stuff! Will come in handy one day im sure! (What with my abuse of 'Cross Processing')
  11. Thank you! I always feel that after a month my thought processes change and i end up making some totally new things, yet still maintain the design consistency that my other work has. Also, i have loads of other work done in PDN that i have for my Graphic Design A Level portfolio, its much different to what you usually see under the Basspixel alias and its a whole other section of my creativity, and still all PDN! Ill put up a couple of examples here That second is is a pretty creative use of my instagram inspiration pictures! Also my apologies for not being so active on the rest of the forum, i have so much work that needs to be done, for my education and for my freelance work, and also to prepare for university applications and revising and lots of procrastinating aswell! This thread has almost become a blog type venture for documenting my progress, and i have to say this will prove invaluable in my future . (Being 17 in this generation is pretty tiring) On a much more PDN related note, i am currently working on a huge project to aid other creators (and push in some sneaky marketing) in their designs, firstly i will be going on a photography spree collecting stocks of all kinds of textures, and then getting more images to composite elements from (think of a pile of leaves with a transparent background, the uses!). These will be coming for free this year, and when PDN 4 is released, i will be creating a number of tutorials using these elements in various ways, primarily photo manipulation Some of my tutorials will be entirely focused on design theory, colour theory, and compositional elements and techniques (most of which i wasn't even taught, but picked up by myself and researched into) Well that was a mouthful, and i think iv left half of my points on a tangent Lastly i would like to say a huge thank you to the creators of PDN and the creators who use PDN, i have learned skills i will keep and share for the rest of my life, created my own career and am well on the way to being an officially qualified graphic designer (which doesn't really mean anything these days)!!
  12. Try change the anti aliasing mode on the eraser, its on the right of brush width, that might help, but the AAs assistant plugin is also very cool for this stuff
  13. Its been a long while but i have been hard at work with more designs, the quality has really stepped up now, im working on bigger canvasses and spending more time perfecting all of the elements, ensuring compositional balance and getting extra brownie points Got some huge projects underway, a website, graphics packs, texture packs, all sorts of devious (and probably illegal) marketing ideas, and of course, continuing to save people from being ripped off!
  14. This is absolutely stunning. *Serious Fangirling And Im A Dude*
  15. I wasn't looking specifically for a PDN plugin, more of a "web resource i could screenshot" sort of thing. Im going to have a more in depth dig about inkscape, and see if i could find a kind of compromise with that (I wont ever leave PDN though! (In fact i already have Photoshop but i much prefer PDN)) I am definatly going to figure out the Paper Kaleidocycle plugin Midora, just installed it now! Looks very promising! Thanks for all the help guys/gals!!!
  16. I really like the zoom blur effect on the red and blue stuff (colour aberation?)
  17. There was a relatively new thread regarding a very effective technique for something just like this. Okay so this is not 100% what you are looking for, but it is really really good, and all you would need to do is a little linework to finish it off.
  18. Okay so this is a concept i've had in my head for a while now and im pretty sure its unoriginal enough that someone has already done it, but i cant find anything of the sort anywhere! Ideally i would want a 3d shape/wireframe generator where you can edit the number of points and the depth of stuff and other such details. Then be able to export it as a high quality PNG which can then be thrown into PDN or wherever. I have seen things come tantalisingly close to this in some Chrome Experiments but still nothing to what im looking for. Just thought id share my plight here incase any of you know the magical answer to this want And before any witty soul mentions it, i would love to make this myself, but being at the young age of 17, the time and effort for that is something that is too far to reach from my bed UPDATE And AS IF BY MAGIC, i have just come across this chunk of beauty which i think does almost exactly what im asking for, all i need to do is figure the code involved to pop in some more complex shapes
  19. That is an excellent point right there!
  20. I think the manual steps are probably better than using plugins, manipulating text yourself is a great way to make your work more unique
  21. My ram holds up pretty well most of the time, its the CPU which is a problem, a mere i3 processor, with an equally pathetic Intel Integrated graphics chip. I see nothing wrong with simple screenshot tutorials though
  22. Thanks allot for this! Just realised how easy it actually is to get started with plugins
  23. You can probably adapt one of the many Glass Text Tutorials to your dock shape and it should work okay. Id suggest spending allot of time playing with glows, blurs, and gradient transparency once you get the jist of things
