Recommended Posts

Hi id like to make a texture thats got a 3d qualities (different surface depths) to appear in reverse. like an image of soap suds on a window seen from the other side: the concave bubbles would appear convex. are there any plugins for this sortof thing on Paintnet?

Such a thing is all about trickery and illusions. There are a few things to keep in mind when you do this. Lighting is especially important when creating this effect. Most of the time, the mind assumes the light source is coming from above, so a convex object would have highlights on top and shading on the bottom while it will be reversed for a concave object. The other thing to make a note of is that things far away will appear smaller than those close up. Bulge is especially useful for this purpose.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait
