  1. Neither of those words fit. And typing that sentence was actually faster .
  2. It's a nice picture, but the background kinda seems distorted. Good effects. ___ http://musiphonix.deviantart.com/#/d4sdu0x It's my current desktop background. I'm not reposting the description, really cannot be bothered at the moment (how lazy of me).
  3. Long time coming, wow. I thought I'd give your tutorial a go, and tada! Before: http://newevolutiond...allpaper-37.jpg (Can't be bothered to make it smaller) After:
  4. To add something to a selection, press CTRL and drag. To remove, press ALT and drag. There are many more wonderful things you can do...
  5. Didn't realise it was that old, it was at the top of the pile! So someone else bumped it. But oh well, nvm.
  6. Every picture is completely broken. It's probably not your fault, but please fix them. By the looks of other's results, this would be worthwhile knowing!
  7. I just spent 4 hours recording a live stream for a few friends. It's only when I watched it back did I remember that the microphone had caught fire the previous day (and didn't work). My friends don't like me any more (at least I have the PDN community...).
  8. I should explain that this was (originally) a Photoshop tutorial. http://psd.tutsplus.com/tutorials/icon-design/create-a-photo-realistic-iphone-in-photoshop/ I've just decided to split it up into 3 parts.
  9. Man I love quick replies! I won't update all the screenshots (no need to) but I'll update the template for it. Thanks!
  10. Hello, this is my second crack at a tutorial, or rather a set of tutorials. This is the first instalment in the "Photo-realistic iPhone" series, which covers the front of the device. The second covers the rear of the device, whilst the third covers the side. I'll update with the links when I write them. The following tutorial assumes that you have a decent understanding on how (from a user perspective) Paint.NET works. If you're new, read up on the help files before you attempt this tutorial. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Resources: iPhone template (.pdn) - (link) iPhone finished (.pdn) - (link) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ You will need the following plugins: Align Object Soften Edges Gaussian Blur+ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Tutorial: You will be making this: 1. Open "iPhone template" (found in the resources section). 2. Fill the template with solid black. 3. Create a new layer. 4. Select the Paintbrush tool and set anti-aliasing to off. Set the colour to white and the size to 26. Create a white circle as shown in the image below (we'll center in in the next step). 5. Align object, center horizontally. 6. Create a new layer. 7. Draw a opaque, curved rectangle as shown in the image below (we'll center in in the next step). 8. Align object, center horizontally. 9. Create a new layer. 10. Draw a circle as shown in the image below. Be sure to make it the same hight as the object you drew in step 7. 11. Create a new layer. 12. Draw a solid rectangle like the one shown in the image below. 13. Align object, center horizontally. 14. Create a new layer. 15. Paste an image that you like the screen to display (I'm using a screenshot from the Curves+ plugin (because I'm lazy)). Make sure that it covers the white square. 16. Go back to layer 6, select the white square and invert the selection. Go back to layer 7 and press delete. You can now delete layer 6 (if you want to). 17. After this point, we'll be bouncing around layers. I suggest you name your layers (if you haven't already, like me). 18. Create a new layer above "Button". Name it "Button Icon". 19. Draw a small square over the button, the colour should be a light grey (#808080). Be sure it's in the center of the button.This should be a hollow square with anti-aliasing and a 1px border. 20. On the "Base" layer, select the black. Set the primary colour to solid black (#000000) and your secondary colour to "#0A0A0A". Draw a linear gradient from top to bottom as show in the image below. 21. Set the secondary colour to a light grey (#999999). Goto the the "Button" layer and select the white area. Draw a gradient like the one shown in the image below. OPTIONAL: Use one of the many anti-aliasing plugins on the button (if you think it's too rough). 22. Set the primary colour to "#0A0A0A". On the layer "Front-Facing Camara", select the white area. Fill it. 23. Select a square within the circle. Set the secondary colour to "#0C0099". Reverse the colours and draw a gradient like the one shown (I did have to use the paintbrush with anti-aliasing to do that (awkward sizes)). 24; Select the graident, invert selection. Soften edges with the settings shown. 25. Change the primary colour to "#4C4C4C". On the layer "Speaker", select the white area and draw a linear gradient like in the image below. 26. Without deselecting, create a new layer above speakers. Name this layer "Speaker Holes". Select the rectangle drawing tool and change fill to "Percent 25". Make the primary colour completely tansparent, reverse the colours and draw a 'solid' rectangle over the selected area. 27. Deselect. Go back to the layer "Speaker". Use gaussion blur plus with the settings shown. 28. Create a new layer above "Screen Image". Call it "Lighting". 29. Go to the "Base" layer, select the tranparency and invert the selection. Go to the "Lighting" layer and draw a solid white line cut-off by the selection edge (follow the image). 30. Select the white area you've just drawn. Draw a white to transparent gradient like in the image below. Change the opacity to something between 170 and 210. 31. Deselect, flatten and you're done! _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Thank you for reading my tutorial. I hope you had fun executing it. If you have any suggestions, I will most likely head them (unless they suck).
  11. My attempt is as follows: Yes, clearly I did fiddle with some things. Click the thumb nail for a larger image (1000x1000). ___________________________________________________________________________ The tutorial? Brilliant, not the easiest to play around with but still great. You get an:
  12. Is my attempt (click to enlarge). I call it "Holy Reactor". What a brilliant tutorial, because you can apply other creative steps to make it more awesome. I give you 10/10 .
  13. I'm thinking about doing a flash or silverlight app to show the gallery 'cause it's going to get big. Probably the silverlight option is better. But is either allowed on this forum? Hmm......
  14. Although I'd love to, I can't thank everyone a million times. But still; Thanks! P.S. I'm still updating it. Soooooooo many images.
  15. Thanks! I'm currently updating the list. There are about 70 images to put on the list....
  16. LOL. I'm thinking about my first render sig. My style. DON'T RATE ME!
  17. TO be frankly honost, I don't like render sigs (although I can't rate through personal preferance). And yes, it was made from scratch in PDN. Please, DON'T rate my sig, rate stone's! EDIT: It is darker, maybe because of the auto-resizer affecting quality.
  18. Mayor, I like the background. Is it a starscape on gaussian blur @30 px? XD How many hours/days did it take to get that text right? I don't like the mono-chrome-iness (is that even a word?) It'd be awesome in colour. 8/..... 8.5/10, just because it's from Halo (I like Halo!). Now... Rate mine, people of the thread!
  19. is confused and bored. He's looking for inspiration.

  20. This is my personal gallery on every single image I've ever made (not in chronological order). Some - in my opinion - are beautiful, some are.... poo poo. I'm also using this thread to showcase my "Betas", the unfinished works. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ LEGEND: The following are postfixes for image titles (Image_Title[n]): * (asterisk) This is used to show that it is the direct result of a tutorial, I will try to include a link to the tutorial. n (rating) This is used to show how good I think the image in question is. n is replaced by number (1 to 10, 1 is shockingly bad). This rating is relative to all my other works, so 10 is my best image, not the best image of all time. This goes after all other postfixes and will be n if part of the name consists of ^ characters. 0 (rating) This is another version of n, it is used to show that this image is humiliatingly bad. Please do not review it, I don't need to be told that it's bad, I know. % (Percentage) This is used to indicate that you have permission to do anything you wish to this image. You must still give credit to me and you may not use it commercially. ^ (Power Of) This indicates that there are multiple version of this image. The following are prefixes for image titles ([n]Image_Title): * (asterisk) This is used to show that it is the indirect result of a tutorial. These are usually part of much bigger works. I will try to include a link to the tutorial. & (ampersand) This means the image is part of a large project. & (ampersand) This is an indication that the image is in alpha stage. Please do not review it, it won't be anywhere near finished. & (ampersand) This is an indication that the image is in beta stage. Please review it. It's easier to change in that state. s (stock) This is used to show that the following image contains stock images. The following are suffixes for image titles ([n]Image_Title[n]): * (asterisk) This shows that the image is a project containing multiple 'tutorial results'. I will try to link to all of the tutorials. & (ampersand) This shows that the image is used a a custom stock, so that it's used in loads of projects. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ In the event that you were wondering why I haven't updated it for a while. It's because I've been busy creating a silverlight gallery for a website dedicated to (guess?) being my personal gallery. I'm also working on a comments section. I'll update this gallery with the link when I've finished.

  21. Two years ago, back in the days of Master Suite CS4, there was a twenty-year old man, addicted to Photoshop; His mind was incapable of diverting thoughts anywhere else. He was locked in a room, only his 50'' monitor for light and warmth. In there he had one purpose: Find inspiration for animé-based art. It just so happened to be that he saw the light, in the form of a Paint.net tutorial on "How to draw a 3D Pokéball"; He was hooked from the very beginning, until he saw the possible results and thought, "Let's give this a go!". He downloaded this Paint.net program, installed the "Shape 3D" plugin, and bang, time stood still, this man could hear Satan laughing as he realised; "$700 has been wasted on this steaming pile of sulphurous matter that is Photoshop!". He later went on to cry himself to sleep. I've never used Photoshop since.
  22. Hello is the worst way to start an introduction. I'm Musiphonix. I see my life through a T.V, I consistently review it. Whenever I forget to do this, you notice (posting discussion in a voting thread). I'm slowly increasing my post count. Goodbye.
  23. PCWorld, http://www.pcworld.c...nloads/file/fid,64533/description.html Forgive me if this has already been posted but I love the "editorial review". EDIT: Oh kittens, I suspect usedHONDA has already posted this. I saw his name in the reviews list.
