Jim100361 - My Stuff


Recommended Posts

Hi! I was just looking through your stuff here, and I must say you have improved greatly since you first arrived.

Just a minor complaint...could you at least put links to the posts with your creations in the first post? I was having a good time going through all the pages looking for them, but just so other people don't miss the later works, it would be good to have it all in one place. :)

Quite honestly, I was wondering if some people would not immediately notice. I had seen another dragonfly pic elsewhere and with it's very large eyes, it almost immediately reminded me of the helmet - hence the idea for the piece.

Thank you all for the comments. To be honest, I wasn't so sure it would appear as seamless as you folks think it does. So I'm more pleased with it's outcome now than when I posted it. Thanks again!

I love how the car looks like. There's one suggestion, though. If you're using lines to draw the car, select inside the lines (probably around 69% tolerance level), and color on the layer below the lines. That way, you won't have the jaggies. Unless, you used very thin lines to draw the car, you might still have the jaggies.

Well done Jim, very impressive. Strange but I'm with Welsh on this one the jaggies actually seem to fit the image ( I usually hate them ) Still working on my entry its easier and harder than I thought if that makes sense.

Those lines were originally smooth and they were added after the fact. They appeared too dark though and so I attempted to select the lines and adjust the brightness/contrast and ended up with the jagged lines because I couldn't quite get the right tolerance.

I'm indifferent though about how I feel about them being jagged. They don't seem to bother me, but then again if they came out like I had originally intended, I think I would feel the same way (I mean they looked fine initially except that they were too dark).

Jim, the jaggies didn't bother me, it was more of an indirect way of asking if that's how you wanted it to be. It's really nice. There's a guy on my street who owns a similar car (oh, gosh, I don't know my cars very well, but I'm pretty sure it's very similar to the one you did), but it's like a very light sea green color.

No, I didn't mean to imply that you were bothered by it (I'm sorry if that's how I came across), I was just making a generalized comment based on Welsh's and Minner's comments:

...The 'jaggies' don't spoil the image in any way for me ...

...the jaggies actually seem to fit the image ( I usually hate them )...

Thank you to everyone for your kind comments.

Unfortunately however, it wasn't until after I posted the sig animation that I realized that I messed it up and there was so much involved to make the animation, that I decided to try to ignore it - but it still seems to haunt me. The problem is w/the reflection in the name. It too should've passed between the two people, but it doesn't. Instead it passes over the reflection of the first person's reflection. The layering was done wrong which caused this, and I would've had to redo the whole thing to fix it.

I agree with barbieq25, - hard to spot any 'mistake', even when you've pointed it out.

Correcting it would be a bore - much better to take what you've learnt and enjoy doing a brand new one.

Not that the current one isn't excellent though! ;)

Back in July my parents returned home here in NH to visit for about a month from Virginia where they currently reside. While they were here, I put together a few pieces to show them the program and it's capabilities.

Here's some that I did at that time:

The above took a lot more effort than it appears at a glance. Evidently when the original picture was taken, it was trash pick-up day and so I had to fix the picture to remove all of that and I removed the Antennas from the rooftops, then I added the other 2 elements to it.

EDIT B:

Another Set

These are all very interesting photo manipulations. Your ideas are endless and I like that! The horses on the highway was a neat idea. I can only imagine the stares from the other drivers. :) Oh, and I also wanted to note that you did an exceptional job on all the photo manipulations even if some have slight imperfections. With this amount of additions, it's all forgivable and even give it a unique touch. Awesome!
