j.d. I'm very happy to help out if you need some advice. Feel free to PM me.

Thanks for your kind words too. You will get better. It takes time to understand how to use the plugins etc. You will find your own way of working.

No problem j.d. anytime, just give me a yell.

New work added. Keeper...full view for this one is a must. I'm kind - it's not huge.

New work...Latest is all about time...as it flies by or you can see it as a city with its hectic lifestyle flying so fast & the changes that seem never ending.

An old one revisited & reworked as an abstract. Heavy use of trail...anyone else noticed the jaggies? I hate it! Seems I just cannot get a clean line these days - done all the usual.

Your three latest pieces are fantastic! You should know the images you create are loved by many, including by me.

Very, very clever. Top notch image. I'm not sure why you're worried about any jaggies, you don't know they're there unless you know.

I'd love a few tips on what you did, this sparked off loads of ideas when I'm struggling for inspiration/ motivation

L3ron, I could see that in it too.

Sokagirl, glad you like it that much. Galleria is so far behind that it will take forever to get this one in there. It would be nice though!

Helen & CSM, it makes me happy to know that.

j.d. I know that they are there & how much smoother it should look but overall I guess it's not too bad but I had to work hard to get rid of the worst of them.

Welshy, to the best of my knowledge this is what I did. I took the glassy ball & ran Polar Inversion on it & erased all the tiny bits. I did a lot of undo so I am not sure which effects ended up in the final.

I think I did Mirror at some point too. Layer blend modes too. Then I ran Trail at max for everything, not sure what the fade was set to. Copied the layer & ran Drop Shadow, Layer blend mode changed to something? I flattened everything but the black background (so you can see what is happening). Added black background, & Zoomed the image, then stretched the part I really liked.

That's why I say a way of recording the history of what was done, including the settings would be so very good...

Thank you everyone for your kind comments & for stopping by. I really appreciate the feedback.

WHAT?! You want me to give up my secrets?

Sure - again I have given the destructions to someone...

If I give them to you, would you like to write the tute please?

It is Radial Blur Deluxe (3200 x 2400 canvas, usual warnings to save apply)

1. Get any image at all - resize to 3200 x 2400 but could look ok on smaller one too, not sure never tested it.

2. Radial Blur Deluxe - take the steps back to almost nothing & up the amount.

3. Play with the sliders until you get a look that you like.

4. Duplicate & play with the layer blend modes.

5. Where it has the squares you can either do the gold on a new layer to cover them, or make a grid (new layer) & selecting the inside, go to the texture layer & bevel, or invert selecting so that you have the actual grid selected & delete it from one of the background layers.

This effect is in quite a few images - Keeper as well.

The centre is Drop Ripple with just the centre bit selected.

If there are any specific bits in the image you want to know about - just ask but basically that is it - easy peasy, eh!

Webavenger, this is not the first time you have torn down one of the best artist & my dear friend only to elevate me.

Weylin, thanks for your support. WelshBlue has been instrumental in getting me to where I am today. Let's never forget where we came from & who helped us in our journey.

I am very tearful at the moment...

You did a great job on the take!

Here is a new one - like a whole week without doing anything arty. No wonder I was feeling ill.

Ryan's Jewel - the background is a fractal made by DA3K, a young artist that some of you may be familiar with since he also has the Freedom Artist's group there. I hope he likes what I have done to his Red Sky image.
