An Administrator who should be encouraging more tutorials like that in a raster image editor to improve the experience,  likes a spin off image made from your work, but not the tutorial that allowed it to happen.  Strange indeed.  

 

Who said I didn't like the tutorial? Don't put words in my mouth. 

 

Here we insist on forum users respecting each other. Welshblue has my utmost respect. He knows that. That's why I say things like this...

Links. They were probably hosted on Photobucket or something else that lost 'em.

 

I'll repost the above images just to prove we still think your art is awesome 😊

To quote Meatloaf 🎵 You Took The Words Right Out Of My Mouth 🎵 ... but no tongues eh 😜

 

I didn't think anything of it mate.  Some people chat rubbish without knowing the truth.  You've been a good friend.  Still a good friend.  Will always be a good friend.

I love the attention to detail and how real a lot of your works look.

 

Thanks @JulioCoolio ... very much appreciated.  A lot of work goes in the bin as I'm too much of a taskmaster with myself.  I enjoy the trying to get 'realism' then get frustrated in mine and sometime paint.net's limitations for some things

It's been a while in the making.  Inspired by @dipstick's fantastically rendered light bulb image

 

Plugins used: @MJW's Object Rounder and Texture Shader.  @BoltBait's Inner Shadow (I'm guilty of not realising how useful this is until @lynxster4's great plastic text tutorial)

 

Not happy with the metal part really but playing about is messing it up more than leaving it alone

Looks great to me @welshblue!  Well done!  :star:

 

I know what you mean about 'playing' around with it. Sometimes it's just best to leave it alone.  😜

Oooooooo  :)   Very illuminating and crystal clear.  It has a lovely shimmer to it.  Great piece :star:

@welshblue, from my gallery when I attempted to create a light bulb, this is what you said:

 

Quote

I think light bulbs are hard ... I was trying but then I realised getting almost full transparency but still getting the look is more difficult than I thought.

You're not really a million miles away I don't think.  Some soft white brushing and blurring, Overlay may help to build up the illusion of.  Which I think is the secret of anything PDN and glass - the illusion of @MJW's Hour Glass springs to mind as top glass, and would work well as a bulb ?   Personally I'd really tone down the contact wire, it seems to not 'belong' if you know what I mean ?

 

This was made using Object Rounder  and Texture Shader but think I went the wrong way and should have used S3D and it's transparency options, and then built it up like I said above,  I don't think mine will ever look right

 

And look, you achieved it.  I'm impressed and jealous at the same time!  :P

Thank you @Icegodes ... 

 

@lynxster4 @Pixey @Seerose @TrevorOutlaw .... thanks guys.  I want to re-visit the light bulb at sometime as the metal connection is slightly off.  It needs to be tilted forward ever so slightly, but still keep the same shape.  Hopefully I'll have an eureka moment one day.

 

Thanks too to @ReMake @Maximilian and @HyReZ for the rep points.

I'm calling this piece CopyCat as I wanted to try out the technique demonstrated here Trevor Outlaw.

it's an interesting style and not quite as easy as it looks.  But I guess there's no right or wrong ?

I suppose I should feel flattered, after all, they say imitation is the best form of flattery.  :D
