Sasha, Happy New Year to you, too. I really like the clock. I noticed that you added shadows in the clock but there's none underneath the hands of the clock. Personally, I like it, but thought I might point it out. Great job on the wooden texture and the neat design of the clock!

Thank you Helen. I hope you have a great year :)

I did originally add some shadow on the hands of the clock during the work in progress stage, but it didn't really look right, it looked (to me anyway) fake, so I didn't use it in the end, I could have worked a little more on the detailing on the clock face, but I was running out of ideas when I got to layer #24 :lol:


Thanks for your pointers Helen. I welcome and learn from them :)

Liking the clock you have made Sasha, very good metal and wood effect, it looks like you have put a lot of work into that, well made :)


I so agree.


If the dent bugs you then the clone stamp would work here. I have a hard time with it but you might have more luck than me. Take a peek here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/19117-the-subterranean-copypaste-blues/?hl=%2Bsubterranean+%2Bblues


Sadly Sarkut has been missing from here for some time. 


In any case, the dent does not detract at all. :D

Thank you DrewDale and Red ochre, I am getting the hang of things more now and trying to create my own things :)


Barbieq25 thank you for that link, it looks like a useful read (I can't see any pictures on there to help) :) I don't mind the dent in the metal though, it makes it more real :D

Yes I like the clock as well . A very crisp and clean design nicely done. Drydareelin is right about the shadows on the hands. Adding them would add a bit of depth and lift them clear of the face more. Also while on the subject of shadows have you thought about putting the clock on some sort of surface and adding a reflection/shadow to it?


I notice the hands are at 10 to 2. Did you know that why shops display them at that time? Apparently it is because it makes the clock look as if it is smiling and attracts people better, rather than having a clock set at 20 to 4 which would make it look miserable. Smiley clocks sell better. Funny how the mind works.


I thought you did a grand job with the jigsaw as well. At first I thought you had just taken a photo of one you were making at the time. Well done .


A great gallery you have there Sasha.    sHa_thumb2.gif

Thank you Drydareelin, I tried adding shadow to the hands, but I couldn't get it to look right, so I left it flat. 


Thank you Goonfella. I wanted to place the clock on some kind of wallpaper type back drop as if it was hung up, but I didn't know how to make a canvas style texture.(or how to give it realistic shadow - apart from drop shadow)  I didn't know that about the 10 to 2 on clocks  :) I noticed them in stores like that, so I just copied the idea, it makes sense now that I think of it.  The jig saw I am proud of, it took me a long time to get it right and I learned a lot in doing that one :)


I'm glad you like my gallery, I do plan to update as often as I create, I hope I can only improve :)

Hi Sasha,

I think that clock is brilliant!

Amazing progress, I look forward to seeing more.

Thank you Red Ochre, happy you like what I'm doing here :)

I really love the Grunge result you got, even though you say you got lost :)  And.... the clock is really well done.  So clear and no jaggies at all.  I agree with Welshy about leaving it plain metal, although the result you achieved is great as well.  Sometimes it's difficult to make these decissions at the end of the day :cyclops: .

I have added a remade version of my clock creation with some slight changes. :)


Added some shadow to the hands, changed the middle of the clock (the part that has the hands on) to metal, removed the wood backing and bevelled the glass slightly.


Thank you for the recent comments and pointers :)
