@Dark: That's really, really sweet of you to say that. :)

 

@barbie: I love creating collabs with her and I'm pretty sure you already know the amazing pieces she can whip up. :) Thank you.

 

@Welsh: I didn't really know how to make the glossy stand out only after a few trials and errors. Thanks, Welsh. :)

 

 

My new piece was something I wanted to created ever since I started using Paint.NET. I hope you all like it!

Amazing job on both pieces. I don't know anyone that can make those berries shine as well as you HELEN. :D

Oh Helen, the berries are just perfect! 

 

I wanted to do strawberries but knew I would never finish in time for the SOTW deadline. There is so much work that has gone into the berries. I hope we will see more of these :D

 

Love what you did with the bottle. 

 

I could see you turning it into wine or juice & using the berries. 

Fabulous work!

@Daniels: I wanted to get that "sweet" color to them--you know that raspberries are ripe when they're that color. Thank you for both compliments!

@Goon: I appreciate your kind words, Goon. I couldn't really get the highlights how I wanted them until I tried out Bevel Selection. The message with the bottle had to be placed somewhere on the poster. I thought that I'd go creative and text wrap it next to the bottle.

@Drew: My sister already showed this poster to the company and they liked it. It will be printed out big, so everyone will see it. :) Glad you liked how the raspberries came out, too.

@Darkshock: Thanks, DS. Words like yours (along with everyone else's) keeps me drawing and motivated. Btw, that sig! Lovely. ;)

@barbie: Thank you, barbie. Aw, I really wanted to see how you make the strawberries even if they're not for the SOTW. And yes, I put some work into the berries. I'm not going to mention how long I stayed up because the idea came to me very late in the evening. ;) My sister gave me ideas on how she wanted to bottle to look like and how the water should be pouring out of it, so I did that in PDN. Thank you!

By the way, this latest piece (gold wrench) is a project I did for the General Cable company. Enjoy!

That's one fine-looking golden wrench you have made - wish I had one for my work around the house :D .  I did comment (I hope) on DA about your beautiful fruits and would like to say again, that they are amazing B) .

You do some really nice work. I also checked out your gallery on DeviantART. I've got a gallery on that site. User name is Bakerdezign. I use opensource / free software,cause,I don't have the funds for the commercial stuff,and,I've used paint.net the most at the moment.

@Pixey: Oh, thank you so much! I don't think I'd ever use a golden wrench for handyman work...it would be hanging around my neck and nobody would touch it. :D

@Goon: Thanks, Goon. The company enjoyed it very much and made a bunch of copies of it.

@Drew: I had to skew the text in PS, but the rest was done in Paint.NET. I was actually going to create it in Illustrator, but heck, it was so much easier in PDN. Thank you, by the way.

@Seerose: Well, I thank you again. :)

@Daniels: Gradients are a magical tool. Thank you!

@Welsh: Oh, Welsh, that's too kind. :)

@Skull: I'm not the handyman of the family, but I helped my dad for many years with carpentry. I do a lot of work around the house. And thanks for liking the berries, too. You can always have some. :)

@jay: Thanks for taking a look at my gallery here and on DA.

Another beautiful, glossy, shiny image by @Helen - @QueenGlossy.  Perfect colours - which are my favourites and the shine is divine  :) .
