Poker Set - Playing Cards & Chips

This is my try:

What do you think?

My first opinion is that you need to use 'anti-alias' in Shape 3D, in order to get smoother edges on the chips and cards.

Also, and it's only a small point, but the angle of your chips makes it appear more like you are looking down from above - and the separation of the chips in each stack is quite large, making it appear improbable that they are stacked on top of each other (I hope you know what I mean).

It all goes towards realism and believability - if there is something that doesn't look quite right it kind'a throws the whole thing off.

I have to say, I like the colour of the background and the actual designs on the chips - so some work on the image quality (anti-alias) and composition and it'll be heading towards excellent.

Miggy,

You make many poker chips using the tutorial (with different colors, values, and text if you want).

Copy-Paste a chip (Go to the poker chip file, Ctrl-A, Ctrl-C, go to the final file you want, Ctrl-Shift-V (paste in new layer)). Repeat this step for chip number two but drag it on top of the chip in a way which will make it appear stacked (seems harder than it is). You can also adjust the angles of the axises in Shape3D to make the chips appear at a more realistic angle.

Hi,

Great stuff! I'm new to Paint .NET and I'm a complete n00b as it comes to graphical design. Just trying to learn.

What version of the Align Object do you use? It doesn't seem to work; it's available in the menu, but it doesn't do anything to my rectangle.

My Paint .NET version is 3.5.5; the version of the Align Object I just installed is 1.5.1.0.

Thanks!

ngruson,

For Align Object to work right it needs to be applied to an object

surrounded by alpha (transparency) and also be sure that the

object is not selected.

I didn't change the transparency; I just created a new layer, used the Rectangle Select tool and filled the rectangle black.

Transparency for the primary and second color are set to 255.

Thanks for the great tutorial. I was able to reproduce the chips and cards easily with your instructions.

I would love to know how to make a bevel on the edge of the center portion. The chips I have at home have a beveled edge a few millimeters from the edge of the chip. I tried to use the bevel tool on the outside of the center section's circle, however it doesn't give a good 3D representation. I wish i had a sample image to help convey the look i want.

Can anyone help a newbie to paint.net create a bevel on the surface of the chip that either helps the center to look a bit sunken compared to the edge of the chip, or create an appearance of a circle that has some depth around the outside of the center section?

thanks!

I can't load the chip and curved card xml files. Everytime I dowhen using Shape 3D, PDN crashes. I'm using the most recent version which is 4.0.9. Where exactly do the files go? The explanation given was vague.

 

PDN is also crashing for me when I try to load the xml (which goes in the Paint.NET User Files Folder)   I think the problem is with the Shape 3D Plugin and this should be noted in the Shape 3D Thread.

 

EDIT:  I just noticed that this is an issue with the Plugin, which the author has not updated for ages.  You will have to add the settings manually each time :( .

Oh. I guess I'll do it manually then. :(
