The rule about:  You must post your original texture ?  

the trouble with this for me is; I never really have a starting texture for anything I do ... I just keep adding and adding to an image I'm making until I'm happy with how it looks.  So there is no original texture as such

Rules are rules I guess, so I'll sit this one out

welshblue,

More seriously, if one produces a scene to be a setting for the sign

and the sign is reduced in size, Rotate Zoomed, etc., then posting

a full-size flat view of the sign, in addition should be fine.

Chris can correct me if I'm wrong about this.

 Actually, I PM'ed Chris and it turns out he meant you have to post one image of your texture (any view) and optional is to post an image of your texture with text or in a scene. See my entry for an example. ;)

Chrisco97, I PM'ed welsh and clarified the rules for him (ie told him what you told me) and now it seems like he will enter - no guarantees. :lol:

For this part I mean the sign, more specifically the rusty part. I just think it's important in a texture competition to show the texture technique, but still allow the artist to put the piece in the context of an overall piece. So whether you just make a rusty sign or a sign and put in a scene, as long as you post the sign so we can see and appreciate the rust technique, all is good.

Does that make sense?

Well, I didn't read that: Is an textureproof needed? I didn't used any stocks or render, jsut worked with clouds and several blurs and fragmented colours. So do I need to upload a textureproof like Welshblue did?

Okay :-) But if anyone want it, I may do it but I do not have any texture because I have flattend several layers. All in all it were about 29 layers in the end .pdn ;-)

I thought you did a pretty good job. You'll get used to doing textures. They are the basis of any image we do. Whether we make the texture or not, it's the texture in an image that give it it's realism and cohesion. Without texture, everything would be flat. :D

Doing these textures was a big stretch for you. Ok so the outcome wasn't gobsmackingly great but you did try & hard.

Like Possum said, textures are the basic building blocks of good art.

Your image showed that you thought about the subject matter a great deal. You had the courage to show us something you were less than happy with (not the kind of "my works sux" & I say that so that you'll say - No we love it!" deal).

Axle, You've made a great start on that sign, keep on the look out for rusty bits of painted stuff. Look at it - what do you see? Really see? The colour, the light, the shape, the shadow. That just about sums up an artwork.

It ain't gonna happen in 30 seconds.

Take a wander through some of the older galleries & look at their work from way back. Do it! You see what I mean?

yeah, maybe i should have started earlier and done more refining too, rather than making one just before the due date and posting it. but some galleries and other images in this TOTW comp also have some good style and work done to them, i'll keep trying and hopefully improve
