Hi everyone. I just started learning to use Paint.net, or any design program for that matter. At first I was completely lost, but went through a number of the tutorials which were great. Between those and messing around with the various settings I have made the following images. Critiques are of course welcome. Thank you for looking.

I can see you definitely played around with Paint.NET--awesome results so far! I like what you've done with S3D. I remember I was kind of scared to actually make something 3D when I first started using PDN. I love what I see in your gallery!

Thank you both very much. The last two were kind of accidents. On the second to last I went through the Optical Illusion tutorial and then hit it with the 3D plugin and like that enough to remove the optical illusion from the background.

On the last one (which is my favorite so far) I just started with Gradient bars straight up and down, then added Gradient bars at a sharp angle in the same layer, then recolored with Curves, put it all in 3D, drop shadowed, dented, zoom blurred and ended up with that.

So far I am really enjoying this program.

Tutes are a fabulous way of learning how to use the program & the plugins. I like what you have so far. Welcome to the forum.

Yes they are. I have tried other programs before, and when you first start up it is a little overwhelming. But, I have found the support and guidance on this forum to be excellent. Thank You.

Oh and I created my first Avatar ever using PDN, it's over on.....well, on my avatar.

Here is another one that I have done. Hopefully it's not obvious that i'm a huge fan of S3D boltbait.hmm.png . I will start off with the critiques on this one. I should have put a glow around each individual sphere as I was building them in each layer before merging layers. I didn't think about the fact that I couldn't go back and do that later (without it taking quite a long time). Oh well, a learning experience and we move on.

Orbs are a favourite of mine too. Good to see that you learnt to save individual layers. Sometimes I will hide the layers I don't want to have in an image, say the background, for instance, flatten it, copy the flattened layer, undo the flatten, & then paste the flattened layer into a new layer & turn the background back on. This way you will still have all of the individual layers preserved. Not so hot if you don't have a lot of hard drive space or RAM.
