Yep, a gallery. Coming back from lurker status, I might as well, right?

For some of you more experienced PDN users, hopefully you remember me :P

All 100% Paint.NET of course.

@Bjarni - just noticed your new sig/avvie - very cool!

@Aguba, cool images but yes, need to work on the antialiasing. I know I've said it so many times but I use 3200 x 2400 & reduce it to 800 x 600 & run Gaussian Blur @ 2 & that takes care of the jaggies & any other minor imperfections.

I really like the Energy one!

Ugh, I know, the aliasing. The thing is, I prefer the minor aliasing (what I consider minor) to using Feather, blurs, etc. I can't stand the blurry edge that they give. The moment that an anti-aliasing plugin is developed that doesn't create this blurry halo-effect around my project is the moment Paint.NET will be perfect in my eyes.

Also, the terrible quality on Windows Glass and Energy is just because I resized them. I'm not exactly sure what happened there.

Nice stuff here, use feather more often, looks a bit aliased.

The first 2 pictures are really great.

actually no. Don't use feather, alpha masking is better. Great works first image could of used some alpha masking though but overall great images.

aguba search for the alpha mask import plugin by illnab. Also there are some tuts on pdn fanatics about alpha masking. Click the pdn fanatics logo in my sig to go check em out.

aguba, I logged in to let you know my thoughts. I am in awe of your works. My favorite is, surprise, surprise, the Windows glossy blocks. It is gorgeous and it should had won the WOTW competition a while back, but I didn't cast a vote then.

On the 3D front, I think it is the problem with the font, and I'm hoping that Rick will have that issue worked out with the new released PDN version. I tried one last night and posted it in the Desktop Art thread, and I can't shake the feeling it is the text rendering. If it is at a large size, say, 200, it is sorely aliased. I hope you will keep at it, aguba.

Officially retired from this forum. Have a nice day.

Actually, the alpha mask import plugin is probably the one plugin I use the most. I'm still trying to figure out exactly what's causing all those jaggies. I'm really thinking it's the way I do the 3D.

Thanks Lance, and I actually did think it won the WOTW (I know it won something :P ). Hopefully you're right about the font. The font sizes I've been using are relatively small however, so I'm not sure if thats the case.

Very, very nice work! :shock: :shock: Wow! You know me, I love glassy/glossy work and viewing yours, makes me smile. It's awesome work that has inspired me ever since I saw yours when I first joined here. I'm looking forward to seeing some more work from you. :wink:

Thank you for the praise. I'm the same way, I love the gloss.

And for those concerned about the aliasing in my 3D stuff, I think I've figured it out. I use the Rotate/Zoom tool :RotateZoom: to get the perspective I want, and apparently doing so causes the transparent pixels of any anti-aliasing I have to build up along certain edges, depending on the angle I set.

The rough edge is actually pretty easy to get rid of even when using the rotate tool, but you should get rid of it before adding the 'gloss.' I do it this way. For example, you have your shape/s of a solid color, run the rotate tool. After, go to your line tool and and fill in the rough edges. Finally, add in the highlights. I do it this way, but you probably do it differently. Still, your work is amazing and those rough edges don't bother me at all. :wink:

That is the best idea in the history of forever. Ever. I cannot believe I did not think of that sooner. Thank you so so much. I owe you 48.5 cans of :mtdew: .

And to barbieq and butterfly, thank you. I probably don't deserve as much praise :P

I disagree, you do deserve a lot of praise. Great stuff ! I predict there will be an influx of 3D text imitating what you have done. < possum trots off to get started>

@ Helen, great idea ! WOW I never thought of that. < slaps forehead, has little effect, guess you can't slap sense into some people> Sure it would be hard on more complex things, but for that area that just ruins an image because of the AA, it will be worth the effort. Again, you are brilliant ! A big cyber hug for you !
