Barbieq25 Gallery - Gallery update new image p. 1


Recommended Posts

"Simply Love" was the first one that caught my attention because it's pretty and plus, I'm wearing similar colors today--red maxi skirt and white shirt. Nice job on the other two, as well. Your style is so nice!

Well, you haven't lost your touch - they are so pretty and ........ if I had to pick a fave, I'd go for 'Warship' as it's so smooth and I love the colors and the placement of the lines.  Nice to have you back on here.

Thank you all for your encouraging comments. I love the emotes Goonie & Pixey :D

 

Maxi skirt Helen - I haven't heard that expression for years! That one was a bit of a departure from my usual style :D

 

Nitenurse - I would not how to do a pack but thank you for the big vote of confidence. I hope you are feeling better now.

 

Skully it was working when the guy rode it to our house & off again :D

 

I have been doing some FB Banners to help raise funds for one of my students who was in a horrific bike accident last September. He was riding a deepest purple Ninja & hence my start with the Ninja bikes. Hubby & I also belong to a motorcycle cruising group in our city.

Barbie, where we live (in the U.S.), maxi skirts are very popular and since I wear only skirts, it's a go-to for me in the summer and fall time.

 

Anyway, the bikes are so amazing! I love how you customized each bike with its own style of design. Nicely done!

Thank you Helen & Pixey. I thought it was important to the image to have the background fit well with the bike. Your comments let me know that I've hit the mark :D Feedback is very important. 

 

I find it difficult to work with the ratio & cleaning up the bike's original background can be very time consuming & frustrating. I think the one I am most pleased with is the orange one.

I've never seen a live sea urchin. That's one great photo!

 

All your latest works are lovely--there's no denying that you have only polished your craft. Ah, so beautiful!

Thank you Helen & Doughty for your lovely comments. One of my fellow teachers found it :D I haven't either Helen.

 

No Doughty you had not mentioned the heart before but thank you. I have used it a couple of times now in different images because I like it a lot & you can do that easily with a digital canvas :D

 

I thought I'd try another way of working - taking a leaf out of Pixey's book, no, not an animation. Gave up on those years ago. Just a different style. As always constructive feedback is always appreciated. I did have a reference picture that I found on Pinterest - no longer there. Just called Puss.

That is absolutely adorable! It has a jewel-like effect. I love it, BBQ.    :)    :cake:

Thanks Lynxster4, Seerose, Red Ochre & Ishi for your positive comments.

 

The Puss image is 100% PDN. A combination of line tool with Bezier curves, Furblur, layer blend modes, blur & layers. The dotted line was a dashed line that I used Noise ->Median & played with the settings until it got rounded. Also used Feather & AA Assistant & the Curly lines plugin. 

 

 

Here is another one that I made. I like this style :D

Superb result Barbieq!

 

I like your choice of colors and its very neat.

 

Your technique with those curly lines makes neat and simple-looking "filigrees".

 

The Dickie Birds look adorable. But you kinda missed to color a spot on the tummy of the blue mother bird.  :P

 

Anyways, they look great. They fit nicely on greeting cards and children's book illustration. Maybe you should make some. I am somewhat inspired by your technique.
