Welshy old man you must be ancient! :lol:

Funnily enough I did add some shadow to where you suggested. Maybe not enough though.

Thanks Drew. I can just see you and Welshy racing your zimmer frames! :lol: :lol:

Helen your right it is a bit blurry in places. Can`t understand that as I started big and reduced it in size for the final image. Usually this sharpens things up.

Barbie the radio in the tut is coloured green but I thought I would choose a different colour to be different.

I`ve always been here, keeping an eye on things. Just havn`t bothered to post recently as I gave PDN a break. It is nice to be posting again though. ;)

Incidently have any of you tried out the new Photobucket set up? I was given the chance to try it the other day. I did like it but there was a pretty major problem that made me go back to the standard version. When I looked at the thumbnail images in my various folders not all of the image was showing. With the Sratocaster guitar for example, all you could see was the top part, nothing else. It was the same with the rest as well. No good to me. So I told them so when I reverted back to the old set up.

Anyone else had this problem?

Very nice radio Goonfella, the metal text of the grill is excellent, I reviewed the PS tute, you made a lot of changes to it, I really like it, and the background is awesome, well done goonie. :)

Goon, by the way, I saw a record player at a store I was shopping at. It was so cool to see a classic music player right before my eyes. :)

Thanks Jim , glad you like it. :D

When I try doing these PS tuts I try not to copy them too closely. I think it`s always better if you change a few things. It gives it a much more personal touch. I got the idea for the background after browsing through loads of retro posters on Google . It struck me that most of them tend to use pastel type colours. Originally I was going to do a glossy floor with a reflection but I decided against that in the end. I think it looks more `of the period' if you know what I mean.

Helen I havn`t seen a record player for years now. Another thing that has gradually disappeared are typewriters. It`s all word processors now. I saw an article on TV earlier today about Brother. They have finally stopped making them and the very last one has been sent to a museum. Sad in a way. :|

I said I remember them ... not that I was there for the launch :P

Out of curiosity where do you find these ps tuts ? Especially for objects

I basically just search for Photoshop tuts using Google and see what pops up. A good website is http://psd.tutsplus.com/ but another I have found recently with some interesting ones is http://naldzgraphics...tag/photoshop/.

I look through different websites regularly for any new ones just like I keep an eye out for new PDN ones here or on Fans.Most websites have a wide range to choose from. I really wish there were that many PDN ones as well. That`s one of the reasons I turned to PS tuts - I simply ran out of PDN ones! I found that there is a far bigger choice of subjects. With PDN once you have done the main ones you are largely on your own but there is no end of PS ones.

Are you looking to do more yourself?

I like the retro radio with the whole background setup too, presentation can give so much to the whole image, well done :). Only thing I would say is bottom part of radio is a bit blurry for me (where the buttons are).

After nearly 5 years of pdn, my creative juices for things to make off the cuff are running a bit thin and I'm always impressed with your conversions from ps to pdn.

Plus there's only so many abstract images to make before they start to look overly contrived so the new challenge will be good ... maybe you could find one and set a challenge to kick-start me ...

... I know how you love to make us Blues squirm :P

OK . I`ve had a look through your gallery and what struck me was that there was no glass. So how about this one to start with? - http://psd.tutsplus....k-in-photoshop/

This one will make use of all those fabulous textures you create and there is text and an object ( the compass) in there as well. I think it should be a nice challenge. If you don`t fancy it just say so and I`ll pick an easy one instead - to suit your limited capabilities . sHa_hehe.gif

hint - when you are faced with a string of PS Layer Effects settings I have found it`s easier to just ignore these completely and just look at the final result, then try to work out out how to do it in PDN. There is usually a way round it.

Aah I know what you mean now. Sorry I should have had a proper look at the tut. I never realized he used a stock image for the dial . Of course you can still go ahead and make your own dial in PDN but as you are really after an object tut I`ll try and find something else.

How about this one? - http://psd.tutsplus....ayer-photoshop/

Everything made from scratch.

I really don`t know what your Russian was thinking of . How can you boot out a manager who won the Champions League and FA Cup in the same season? Madness. And now it`s coming back to haunt him. Good job too I say.

I think the only way they will get rid of our Frenchie is if he fails to make it into the Champions League next season so the club will lose out on a lot of money. I think they have only kept him on because up to now he has made money for the club. Once the cash dries up they will get rid. Although even then I don`t think they will have the balls to sack him, he will probably be `moved upstairs' if you know what I mean.

Good for you. I'm glad you did. This is a very nice image. The 3D bits are beautifully done. I like your own additions (like I mentioned on Fans) because it gives the image more character. I guess what I mean is like your own signature touches are seen in the image.

I still shake my head @ Robbie Di Matteo's sacking.  Total nonsense.  Benitez will never be accepted.  He's said too much in the past.

 

The Gunners support of Wenger is laudable.  Trophies are nice ... making a profit is possibly more important ?

That said I think Arsenal are looking less the team they were.  Not the best passers and most exciting team they were 2 seasons ago IMO

Not meaning to start an off topic fight here, but I think Gillingham FC are the rootenest, tootenest, shootenest  team around. Playing for the love and passion will always win over playing for money and gold  :D

 

Standing back and awaiting the flames :lol:

 

Oh yeah..and while I'm here, great planet goonfella, very detailed, I love the colours too. :)

Andy Hessenthaler - what a player.  Definitely one overlooked by the 'bigger' clubs.  More overpaid players from lots of clubs should take a leaf from his passion and commitment book
