  1. So beautifully delicate, with a great color scheme and the centers remind me of beadwork. Nicely done for just getting back into it. Your first one would make a wonderful signature while the second could easily be turned into a fascinating glossy orb. Something to ponder...
  2. A big thank you to The Howler for an Excellent job hosting the SOWT #54 competition. Congratulations to pdnnoob, optical illusions or not it's a fine 1st place entry. Nice job delpart and histi, congratulations and Kudos to all who took the time to enter.
  3. Helen - Starry Hoops is truly captivating, with a great choice of colors and the wow factor of the glossy orb is off the charts. Another exceptional piece to add to your masterful works.
  4. Flip - Great looking album covers; your sigs are really crisp with nice definition and an uncluttered clean look. Love your space scapes, especially Cloud_Planet. That is an extraordinary piece! Flawless merging of the stock clouds image, outstanding job on the sun rays and stars. The soothing green makes me want to stare at it for hours. Impressive... B)
  5. I agree, one vote wasn't enough. Maybe in the future there could be an opportunity for each voter to cast thier vote for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Didn't notice the optical illusion until you mentioned its existence. So, is it the top of the letter T in the word paint tilting forward?

  7. @ barbieq25 - Each time I post something new, you're usually the first one to lend words of praise, encouragement, sage advice or all of the above. I just can't thank you enough for being there and paying it forward. :star: :coffee: @ Helen - You just made my week! After reading what you wrote I had a Vector moment (Despicable Me) shouting, Oh Yeah! Thank you ever so much for the glowing review and for challenging me to work outside my comfort zone. :star: @ NMD21 - Thanks for dropping by. @ dug - No apologies necessary... I am honored you took the time to visit and appreciate your words of encouragement. Thank you. @ delpart - Many thanks. My initial intent was to use the same background as my Marble N Wood piece. Spent more hours than I care to admit trying to get the glass ball and shadow to out shine all that wood. I was quite pleased with the outcome after coming to the following conclusions. 1.) If it ain't working, you're forcing it. 2.) Sniveling about it dosen't help. 3.) Applying the Keep It Simple Simon method works 99% of the time, with a 1% chance that your piece will turn out looking like something that came out of the north end of a south bound horse.
  8. @ Helen - The following is my simplistic answer to your challenge posted on December 21, 2011 (page 2, post #29). Crystal Folderal There is so much more for me to learn about this subject and I fully intend to pursue your challenge further. Thanks for the nudge.
  9. @ welshblue - I clicked on the link in post #3 and it worked for me. Tile Image Link edit: just double checked this link, it takes me right to Curtis's Plugin Pack page. Thanks doughty, I can't decide if I'm looking at stone or rusted metal in your piece. Either way, it's an outstanding texture and a nice over all design. Thanks barbieq.
  10. How about :mrred or :red :red:
  11. Thanks pdnnoob, a fine tutorial. delpart - Your text cut is really crisp and that background is just way beautiful. nitenurse79 - It's good to see you working through these tutorials and obtaining great results. yellowman - Your art skills are awesome. Here's my attempt.
  12. @ skullbonz - Thanks a bunch. Your gallery is full of great looking space scapes, keep it up. @ welshblue - Much obliged sir.
  13. Most excellent pieces in here - Nice job everyone! 's all around. @ welshblue - Thanks for the spark of inspiration and another fine tute. Here's my go at Textured Shapes. Bloomin Star
  14. @ barbieq - Once again thank you; the feeling is mutual. @ doughty - It doesn't sound goofy at all, it sounds like a very nice compliment. For that, I thank you. Appreciate you stopping by and glad you found a favorite.
