(Insert Witty Title To Zlyth's Gallery Here)


Recommended Posts


Hey there everyone. I was on the old forum pretty often under the name of Dark Zarosia, and now I'm back! I don't use PDN as much as I did, as I'm incredibly buisy now. Thus, most updates will be on the weekends. But, enjoy!

~A Bit About Me~

Well, I'm almost 13, I'm homeschooled and live in Alabama. I'm also a male gymnast, and that's pretty much my life, haha. I spend 4 days a week at the gym for 2 hours a time, 1 or 2 times a day. When I'm not there, I'm doing school, or I'm sleeping. I use PDN whenever I can or when I'm just bored around the house. I mostly make signatures, but I also like spacescapes, and I really want to get better at them. And there you go, my life in a nutshell. boltbait.smile.png Time for the gallery!



^My very first signature. How cute. <3


^Thrown together for someone on the forums.


^ <3 Sharp forever!


^One of my first decent sigs.


^Made trying a tutorial on these forums.


^ First good one.


^Made using another tutorial.


^This is after I got a bit better. Background is 100% PDN. I'm proud of it, haha.


^Made back when I was learning, I was trying to take a cruddy sig and make it better using only PDN.


^I was just playing around one day, turned out alright though.


^Trying out a new style. I kinda like it. 100% PDN, also.


Same as above. i like this one better though.


First sig with a planet in it. 100% PDN.


^CoD. What else is there to say? (Other than Battlefield BC2 is way better. Hehe.


^ so-so sig I made a while back.


^Rainbow! Yay!

^Just a random planet.


^Same as above, different color.


^Slight background.

^Newest, and best starscape. It has tiny rainbow color scheme too. :D



^My First PDN picture, I think.

^I was trying the power plant tutorial. I failed. but failure is pretty. boltbait.tongue.png


^I call it,"Eye of the Newt". Dunno why.


^Was Playing around, and this happened.


^Polar inversion thing.


Following yet another tutorial!


A cool optical illusion, the 'black square' in the middle isn't there.


^Black hole!


^Black hole V2!


^See a trend?


^Metal-flower thing.


^A tutorial that I strayed so far from I don't even know what to call this.


^Hit the random effect button about a million times.

Well, welcome back!

Please consider revising the last part of your post because all capitals is like shouting & the mods don't like being shouted at.

Looking forward to seeing your work.

Heh, ok. :P

By the way, how do you hide images nowadays? I can't seem to find the button....

I like your first signature, the colors match and everything can be clearly seen except for the text at the bottom.

I prefer your first one to your second one because the picture looks a little squished. Other than that, fine.

Third one is the same as the first, text fades in and out so fast its hard to read, plus its almost as light as the background.

Fourth one I would have to see the stock, but other than that its kind of hard to see what's going on in the signature for two reasons:

1. Everything is some sort of orange or red.

2. It's kind of small.

Number five is very nice, but I don't really like the outside part where the diagonal lines serve as a border.

I know I'm repeating myself a lot but anyway, in the sixth sig, the text is hard to read... but its very good, you can clearly see the focal point of it etc.

Seven: Nice! Nothing really to suggest for it.

Eight: I can really see you getting better over time. This one is very good, all the colors match, the "style" is the same etc.

Nine: Very nice... I would have to see the original though.

Ten: This one "flows" very well. Some of the lines are a bit aliased, though.

Eleven (wow this is a long post) and twelve: I like the match of colors, the black white, and very dark red, I'd prefer the second one.

Thirteen: Very nice! You can easily see everything even the name even though its small. And I like the chrome-like style to the map (?).

Fourteen: Once again, I would have to see the stock used.

Fifteen: I don't like the way the rainbow continues into the blue-purple in the name, I would put it on a separate layer that start the rainbow over from red (since you won't be able to see it if it was as dark as blue or purple)

I'm stopping here because I don't want to bore you with my repetative comments, but I'll make sure to come back soon and comment on the other ones in a less boring fashion later! ( :devlish: :devlish: :devlish: )

I just saw one last thing to comment on ( :devlish: :devlish: :devlish: ), I wouldn't use polar inversion in your abstracts too much.

That's one very nice starscape you have there, sir (madam? I think you were a madam...) :grinneh:

The green parts of the colour gradient don't fit too well, though, and I want to see bigger images!

The small resolution doesn't do it justice :sadtard:

You have a good eye for highlights, but I miss some little star clouds, though the nebulae look very good. They miss some sort of colouring..

Thanks guys, and yes I'm a sir lol. Now that I'm back into PDN I can't seem to stop! ARGH! Anyway, I decided to try out that advertisement mockup tutorial for the heck of it. It came out ok I think, but I know I can do it better. So, I'll probably try it again in a week or two. however, any suggestions on the current version are much appriciated! :)

You're really getting good.

I really like it, but the reflection of the grass in the iPad is kind of weird. I don't know what though, maybe turn down the opacity?

I really like the background (the circles, not the black).


Hehehe, I made a response ad... here:

Haha, that's really cool! Funny too, it looks like he's slipping and about to fall on hit butt, lmao.

Anyway, I just got back from gymnastics and had an hour before dinner so...


Very small abstract that just happened.


A mediocre sig I made from my lastest starscape.

Forgot about this, it was a very random texture I made almost a year ago. figured I might aswell put it up here.
