It looks like it's a warm planet. I mean, because the colors look so warm. I'd like to go to that planet of yours. Nice job!!!! :P

@ Storm.Shadow ... for the wood I make 3/4 varying 'grain' effect layers and blend them in. Glow and Soften Portrait help to get warmer wood tones and for the knotty look I add a new layer, use clouds @ Scale: 800 Roughness: 25 (both those are subject to experimenting :) )

and then use the Height Map to Normal plug-in, usually I sepia it then play around until I get a look I'm happy with. (Lower alpha numbers on the cloud I haven't tried :idea: )

I've started to write a tut' but it's such a convuluted process at the moment I thought I'd give a quick summary.

Have a mess around 'cos it's all trial and error and beauty in the eye of the holder :lol:

Eg. Relief/ Emboss etc can give quite a nice really rough sawn look

I hope that helps ?

I got your PM and I honestly don't know how to send PM :oops:. Would you be so kind to send me an instruction or point me to a thread that helps? I feel like a complete idiot for asking.

Sozo, the example you posted above, did you make that? Its awesome smudging/brushing. :shock:

Yep, It's clouds, dents, and sharpening with some smudging thrown in there.

Oh i thought it looked like something Alyn or Greg Martin etc. made.. lol (thats a compliment in itself :P )

______________________________________

Welshblue, the lighting on the planet is better, and coming along nicely. Try not to "embed" the lighting on the texture though, and make the shadow darker. Increase its opacity. ;) For the light, take a look at planets on dA and see the difference. The lighting on your planet looks like its embedded, when it shouldn't be embedded too much. I hope that made sense.. :|:P

Starfield is looking much better! Glad you used my sparkle tut, i knew it would come in handy one day. :)

I wouldn't blur the larger stars, they're supposed to be more in focus than the smaller ones. :P

@ LFC', GoonFella and Helen, thanks your input is always appreciated; but I'm giving 'space' up for a week or so. I really need to swot up on tuts etc ... and frankly it's doing my head in :x My fault for not watching any science fiction films :)

(LFC' - The master plan for the stars is to build up a lot of layers :wink: )

@ Storm.Shadow ... I guess you've sussed out PM's :!: :D

@ AmadeusX ... I really liked the sigs I commented on. Keep up the good work and I'm glad you enjoyed looking around my gallery :D

PDN Time? is inspired by WorldsNewer's fob watch (I will include a link) and using the background from another image can only be good for the enviroment by me recycling my png's :)

I am pleased with your watch. It's gorgeous, outstanding, magnificent, awesome, and beautiful! I bet you this piece was time-consuming ( :lol: ) Nice job, Welshblue!

I added a new image in my gallery if you want to see it.

Nice work there. I would use PM if I could use it. For some reason you got to send it as XML or Excel, and I'm like ???????

@ Goonfella ... thanks. It wasn't intentionally tortoise shell, but it is now :lol: (***Of course no real tortoises were harmed in the making of this image)

@ Helen ... thanks for the 39 :o smileys, but I think it's only worth 38 :P:lol:

and a confession - it took me 24 hrs to get the 'time consuming joke' :oops: :oops:

@Storm.Shadow ... thanks, RE: the PM's, compose PM, enter recipient's name and submit ... I think. I'll check later and send you a PM :P

Now I've got the watch dial etc I think I'll make a watch complete with bracelet strap :?:

It took this long to make the watch/ clock

I know the quality is crappy - I tried making it an APNG but it only plays in my browser not when I upload to PB :?

welshblue, it looks really good, i like the gold-ish box the clock is on. Nice job on the animation too. :wink:

the clock looks a bit flat though, needs shadowing where appropriate. :wink:

You deserve all of the 39 smilies and it's all right it took you 24 hours to understand my joke. I would've explained if I needed to. I really admire the animated watch; it's wicked cool!!!!! 8)

Nice attempt at the clocks/ watches AmadeusX. the 3D one is quite an interesting abstract :D

Thanks LFC' and Helen - Fair points about the animation LFC', I'll work on it some more, adding shadows to the frames and basically trying to get it looking a cleaner and shinier .gif

(the apng looks a lot better :? )

The 'box' is recycled from Mr.Darkside then using Sepia 2 with an upper layer of blurred orange.

A technique I'll use again I think :)

Thinking about it, my sig and avatar are re-cycled from the same image :)
