Helen's Graphics (UPDATE--NEW images!!')

Recommended Posts

@Red: I always tell people that green is a color that I don't really like in clothing--that grass green color to be more specific, but certain shades like mint green or neon green are just beautiful. I decided to create a glossy with a nice, calming color. Thank you. :)

@Max: Aw, many thanks for your kind words. I really, really appreciate it.

Aggghhh! Darkshock and AFG! :D Thank you for visiting! Missed you both. I'm doing well, AFG. :) And yeah, I still create them glossies although I create loads of illustrations for my books with PDN.

 

Thanks for commenting and stopping by, DarkShock and AFG!

Dear HELEN!  vya4fhbe.gif   "mintgreen glossy" is excellent. The shininess is outstanding. Thank you so much.

Thank you, Seerose. I just love shine and glossy. I think it makes life more beautiful.

Dryda, for some reason, I sometimes post a comment and it doesn't get posted. Maybe a glitch or something. Nonetheless, thanks for the comment. I love the minty green color as it's calming. :) Thanks.

Marvelous works with those.

 

Helen you must be the expert with shiny things. They look, as young people nowadays would put it, "adorbs". They look so polished and perfectly done.

 

I couldn't do many shiny things and I get jealous over that. LOL...  :lol:  :P

Ishi, I've been doing these shiny glossies for quite some time now so it is practice. Thank you so much for visiting and commenting. I really appreciate it.

Maybe I should try the shiny things myself but I know your method takes a lot of steps. You're like a gradient and transparency overlay genius.

 

Who would have though those were PDN? Very clean, almost vector graphics groove. Great stuff.

@Red: I was sitting and drawing a page from the book (I was working on clouds) and then I was looking for a cloud reference image online and saw an image that caught my eye. I decided to recreate it in PDN adding my own touches. Thank you for commenting. :)

 

@Ishi: Creating something shiny is actually easier than it seems. You should give it a try.

Yes, I should give it a try. Maybe creating something like your sig is a good starter for me.  :D

 

I was working on some artwork with clouds too. Its clouds and smoke actually and its turning out OK. I used a World War II painting as a reference. It used like 3 hours of my time just now.

@Max: I saw the animation and I laughed out loud--literally. It's so cute! Thank you!

 

@Pixey: Aw, Pixey. You always say the sweetest words. :D

 

@barbie: A HUGE thank you for the compliment. 

 

@Seerose: It's a simple little drawing that I did, but it was so much fun. I love glowy and fairy-like things. Thank you.
