Think I just need 6-7hours to sleep, yet it works :D The new sig is much better, like this. And electrons is beautifull, very nice work in all pics.

Ditto the nice job on xmario's tut

what stands out in your latest is Electrons. Love everything about that. The depth, the textures and the way you've captured 'movement'.

Very nice

thanks barbieq25, your tutorial definitely got the gears turning!

why thank you welshblue! electrons was actually for the space art of the week competition 'when worlds collide'. unfortunately i was too late, so i held on to it, forgot about it, and rediscovered and posted it.

J.D.: really?! :00: and that was my first try! please notify me when you make one, id like to see it! thanks!

i tried stone85's tutorial

The second signatur is better than the first. The colors there matchs the render more than in the first. This perspective banner looks very nice to me. Btw, perhaps you can write a tut for making abstracts, those works are just beautiful.

@julio, yeah the second one is better in my opinion too, thanks man!

@barbieq25: Thanks! it was a split second sort of thing, i was doing something completely different, and then the idea hit me!

@cortez: I agree, and thank you! and i can honestly say that i forgot all about the abstract tut request. sorry! lifes been realy busy for me these past few weeks, all i really have time for is posting a few artworks that i forgot to earlier, vote on a few comps, comment on a few galleries, and help a few people out. Tutorials are not easy for me to write, i had my friend julio try out a tut i wrote for him on a planet and space scape picture. I guess it was a little confusing! but his attempt was actually pretty good!(you can see it on his blog). I will make an honest attempt to make an abstract tutorial, but it may take a while.

I'm glad it looks real! as for the sigs, your advise is always welcome! ill try to shrink the text.

Tied for first with Sarkut and Possum Roadkill in the Photo manipulation competition #2!

I tried to follow Chrisco's advise:

So it's probably clear to you all by now that i really like Mad Max. What you may not know (yet) is that I also really like the fast and furious series. Put those together and you'll find my true passion: cars!

Thanks! I'm glad you liked the picture. I spent quite a bit of time on it. I try to think of things that no one else will think of, and still have it fit with the guidelines and theme. Unfortunately, with round 4 of the PMC, I didnt spend near as long on it as the landscape picture. Thanks for stopping by!

and, as usual, i forgot a picture:

the sig version (which was my main goal in the first place):

Thanks barbieq, You probably can tell that i just downloaded the alpha-displacement plugin and was having some fun!

Well i am trying to come up with a tutorial, and this was supposed to be the specific outcome, but i didnt like it enough, so its back to the drawing board with that:

started with an apophysis render (which i did myself. I usually dont do start with these things (or even use them) but since i was lazy, i just used it. usually i just start from scratch in pdn.

Great latest additions. I loved the photo manip

I've found making tuts on abstracts are impossible ... would be interested to see what steps you take when making them

Thanks Julio! Im glad you like it!

@barbieq: That is my favorite too. Its supposed to be a beginning, middle, end sorta thing. The last one is the finished product. Thank you!

@welsh: Thanks, but i cant help but think the wave is ruining it... oh, well, I tied for first with it so i guess its good! :D

I've found making tuts on abstracts are impossible ...

I agree. I just cant make anything worthy of the 'Tutorials+ - Publishing ONLY!'. I might post what i have in here, it really just turned out to be how i did the abstract flower. Everything is soo different that there really isnt one over all method. The entire method changes every time!!! If any of you want to see it, just ask and i might post it in here (if that is allowed...).

here is a possible outcome you can make with it. this is as close as i can get to something like the flower picture. (after i realized that a general tutorial would be impossible, i just made it for the flower picture):

th_try.png

then with a little tweaking:

th_trycolor.png

and another one:

th_try2.png

added some colors:

th_try2color.png

Here is one that I forgot:

th_try3.png

used alpha-displacement and added colors:

Edit 10-28-10:

I used Welshblue's great tutorial for this image:

th_metaltryflat.png

And I used Sarkut's also great tutorial for this image:

th_goldwithmetalize.png

And this was made using Welshblue's wood tutorial

Edit 10-29-10:

just a little manip of an album cover. I like to mess around with album covers when i am bored.

I'm still tweaking my space scapes:
