I wouldn't stop looking at someone's gallery. I believe each person is his/her own artist if they set their mind to it. You, however, just go beyond that point and make things possible that seem impossible. I really, really like the wood. I think that you've got the idea and put it forth perfectly. Great job! :!:

I like the nutshell piece. Makes me think of wooden apple slices :lol:

Also think that the dolphin piece is cool, and I do agree that the original draft was better. As long as you add the lighthouse back, because I like that lighthouse :wink:

Thanks Helen and Worldsnewer.

The dolphin one will be liable to change sporadically :) :wink:

It's great to get positive remarks from people who's work I admire. (Altho' if no-one ever replied I'd keep going because this pdn lark is so relaxing)

The same abstract, different colours.

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

You know when you want to yell from surprise and the only thing you can do is write in Caps Lock? Well, I was just yelling but you couldn't hear me. :wink:

Beautiful, beautiful, awesome job! It's so smooth, bright, glossy, and designy (well, that's not really a word. lol) Nice work!

Thanks Jannettsue :D Hopefully the next wooden piece will look more realistic :?

Thanks Down, the sparkles were from another WIP and my laziness to make new ones for that abstract does show. Too late now as I don't save the pdn files from quick 20 minute mess arounds :oops:

Thanks again Helen, the abstract is just a lot of distorts from a shiny button, but it's amazing how changing blend modes transforms everything :shock: Apart from the sparkles I'm pleased with them both.

Christmas Lights

Thanks Helen ... I'm glad you (someone) likes them.

I'm trying to wrap a larger version around a christmas tree :roll: ... I think I'd have more luck wrapping them around my neck :evil:

I like the image because of the contrast and the wires and the shadows on the bulbs. Well, good luck with the lights. :D

Did you see my newer image?

Where's the smack my own head smiley ? :oops:

I never thought of using that way/ that tut (my wife's right ... for an intelligient man, I'm fffick sometimes)

That will work perfectly because I've still got all the bulbs on separate layers.

Thanks oma. :)

Thanks Helen and oma :D

I wish I'd spent more than 5 minutes on the frames, but apart from that it's one of my favourite pieces to date.

It wasn't a fib oma ... the glass was found by accident 8) A lot of clicking and hmmm that could be glass if I ...

Over the christmas holiday I'm going to experiment a bit more with what I did and hopefully write a tut if anyone is interested ?

Merry Christmas one and all, and may you and yours have an exceptionally good new year.

Thanks Jannettsue, Gamers_world and Helen, I'll knock up a few screenshots of how I did the 'glass' over this next week. (Although it's more of a cheat than a tutorial) In the mean time ...

Thanks Helen, I'm happy with most of it except the colour of the rings, I think I'll re-do them so they're more Gold than Yellow and I think I'll inter-link them. But thanks again for your positive comments :)

Wow...Incredible glass on the last page, and in your on the fifth day of christmas piece, the rings look exactly the right color for what I imagine gold to be like. :D

Thanks Zwicky and ZizOiz

Glass is proving not so easy to crack (plenty of pun intended :roll::) )

'HeadCase' is still a WIP but I thought I'd post it here to gauge how it's looking. Thanks to Boude for his tips. One thing I've learnt is that it's not so easy to turn this:th_stocksilhouette.pnginto this th_glassheadresize444.png
