First of all, I'd like to say that you're very well-organized. When I looked at your sig, I smiled to myself thinking that everything is so perfectly labeled. :):) Your work is polished and I'm looking forward to seeing more additions.

I like how you have organised your gallery. Very neat. I can rarely recall what plugins I've used & I keep saying that I must write down the steps but never do :lol:

Your work is like Helen says: polished & I too am looking forward to seeing more from you.

Mix tape is excellent! - very disciplined keeping to greyscale.

Re Depth - the 4 'locator' holes - you would probably see through to the reverse-side holes, slightly smaller and displaced by perspective. Left hand side hole looks a little lower than corresponding one on right too.
Certainly not critisizing but sometimes it helps to have an opinion from someone who hasn't been looking at it for hours.

Great gallery btw! ;)

I had some time this morning, so I make some edits to the Mix Tape.

 

-Used better fonts for the label

-Added locator holes to the B side, as @Red ochre noticed they were missing

-Added time markers lines to the B side window... you have to look closely to see them

-Added depth to the cog prongs

 

See the new version in the first post... for historical purposes you can see the old one here.

 

Let me know what you think.

I made a Rubik's Cube this evening; complete with worn sticker edges. See first post. Shape3D did all the hard work in this one. If you can see one of the the three faces of the cube I did, before Shape3D did it's thing, look here.

I also added a Toy Block signature that I made back in September for one of the forum contests.

 

Feedback is most welcome.

Thank you for responding to my "Mother and Child" transparency issue❣❣

 

This work is amazing, just what I need to help me take my work to the next level.

 

Thank you for finding me, you are talented and very organized.  Bottle up a little of both and send them my way.

 

May you be blessed in ways you have not yet imagined.

 

Pat
