Request - Hidden Treasure

Recommended Posts

Hi i'm pretty new to Paint.net I suck at art!

Could I request a tutorial, to draw something that takes the background color of whatever it is placed on and looks like its embedded into it.

i.e if I had a cutaway landscape (cartoony) and wanted a skull or bones in the soil, how would I draw these?

Thanks if any1 gives this a go!!

try getting the drop shadow plugin, and then instead of having the shadow below the e, try putting the shadow about 5 px above the original image, and about 3 px to the left.

If you do not have the drop shadow plugin, then you can find it by searching.

Does this help?

This is my attempt with them on the image i'm using, they don't look as good as I hoped,

I also wanted more of the background color to come through, therefore whatever color I change too it is reflected in the items:


Any ideas how to impove? :cry: Thanks for the help
