Nice work on the record. I haven't seen one in a long time so I can't really comment on how vinyl-y it looks. Love the background too.

 

Great Xmas sig. You should put it on a Tshirt and wear it around a shopping centre. :P

I looked on google earth street view (Maybury road/Stanley road , Woking, Surrey), for the road sign - it's gone! :roll:

 

Great work on the record. I saw the original tut - got to admire your patience - and an impressive outcome.

 

Put that sign back when your finished with it mate! :lol:

Amazing result Welshy, love the details and colors, and the background as well,

you just need a wider black outside edge, you know, where you drop the cartridge at the beginning ;)

 

EDIT, Sorry for the late comment, my IS was off for almost a week..but I was seeing everything on my phone.

I see how you are, Welsh, showing me up on the whole vinyl record thing.  No, don't deny it, you're not fooling me.  You did it just to make me look bad.  

 

All kidding aside, your works continue to amaze me.  It should be noted that your technical prowess on PDN is matched only by your creativity.  The way you've blended the technologies of the past and present illustrates this.  

 

I agree with Goonfella that a little more shine on the vinyl would really make it pop.  Other than that, it's another masterpiece beautifully executed.

 

I'm still waiting for you to do one of RoboCop...

@ BarbieQ', B'Penny and Dug ... maybe some fairy lights around the text on the anti-christmas T-shirt ? Many thanks guys

(@ BarbieQ' ... I've still got the large .png of the S - You design if you ever need it ;) )

@ Sasha ... many thanks. Not sure about 'lifelike' ... more my take on realism :lol:

@ Nanette ... many thanks. I'm old fashioned but IMO you can't beat the feel and sound of vinyl. And vinyl album covers always look much cooler than their cd counterparts.

@ Red O' ... many thanks mate. The road sign ? The price of scrap metal is so good I sold it to help pay for the T-shirts ...

@ YM ... many thanks mate. Good call on the edge ... I hadn't noticed before. My bad.

@ Red B' ... :lol: Never mate. And thanks. The idea of it all is all thanks to the PS tut' from GoonFella ( Who I must say thank you again to for a great challenge)

RoboCop ... you sketch a head on view of him and I'll fill in the blanks ?

@ SAND33P ... many thanks. Not  'incredible' but I always accept kind words :lol: Plus a lot of thanks has to go to forum users past and present who have contributed in so many ways to my learning things

Ella's Zen stones is an incredible work that is atmospheric & emotive. A work of opposites - reflecting life. I love how you have layers in the image, as in the frames. Well done!

Oh my gosh! This is an incredible scenery! The background looks just like a photo--I can't believe it. Well, I can believe it because you created this, but it's just beyond phenomenal. The sand dune texture is wow! And what a fitting border, too, Welsh. Oh, and the lens flare is amazing. I told you. That's the proof that it's a real photo.

Very good take on a desert scene and it does look amazingly real.  Those stones are incredible, as are the dunes.  I just noticed this here and it's 'wow' B) .

@ B'Penny ... many thanks.   The lighting is thanks to the Cross Processing plug-in, I'd never used it before and it gives some great results

 

@ Goon' and Helen ... it's been and gone ... I'll have to change my sig :lol:

 

@ Goon' ... win after win and Benitez will still never be accepted :lol:

Thanks Dug.  You're a gent.  The sky is thanks to gradients, brushes and blend modes

 

Happy New Year to all who have supported me on here this past 12 months.  Your comments and critiques are more appreciated than I can put across in words.

 

You guys are the driving force behind my work.  Diolch

Wow that is an amazing image. Great work especially on the background. The clouds and mountains/rock terrain in the back look amazing. Great job.

Now I have to wonder what ut99 is... :)

 

it's a video game - Unreal Tournament

 

@ matt0815 ... thanks.  After looking at some screenshots - I'm flattered

 

@ JF ... thanks mate.  I think I over did the Dents but many thanks for the kind words.  The beauty of keeping old files is that you can copy and paste :lol:

 

Again many thanks for the feedback folks.  Glad you's enjoyed it

 

-----------------------------------------------------

 

A new year - a new start.  All good intentions are to produce more cheerful works ... but we'll see how long that lasts :lol:

 

Bright Start on pg1

Welsh, it's a beauty! LOVE the paint-like splatters all over your name. The maroon color on white is a great color combination. I know that I've been wanting to do something in PDN and that was to fix my banner. I think it will be my next project. Great job, Welsh! :)
