Nice concept and execution - I really like the starkness of it.

 

Artistic choice here but to me the cut outs look too bold against the dark grey with it being the same both sides.  A lighter gradient left to right ?

Final 2018 photomanipulation up!  As I ring into the new year, I wish to convey my gratitude to the Paint.NET community for being an awesome bunch.  To those who have stopped by and commented on my photomanipulations, thank you.  To Rick Brewster, thanks for making a great software that is FREE, easy to use, and did I say FREE?  To the plug-in authors, thanks for making PDN accessible and possible for me to do all my photomanipulations.

 

Happy New Year to you all!

2 great new works.  It's surprising how many think it's easy to blend a few images ... from experience I know it's not.  Not if you want to tell a story and capture the viewer and their mind.  Great choice of background colour on The Call

It has been several months since I have posted something new.

 

First, for those who have commented on "The Call," I am surprised none of you saw a person that was standing inside the person.  When I saw that stock, I knew where I wanted to go, and hence, "The Call."  It was the person inside a cave issuing a call to the man with the glasses.

 

@welshblue's Dragon Eye inspired me to go back to my root and I present an orb on page 1.  I used @dpy Circle Text plugin to make the jewel pattern, mirror over line (left half over right half, and then top half over bottom half),  and @dpy's Metallize (still one of my favorite plugins).  The background was created by going crazy with two colors gradient set to difference mode (an adaption from one of Photoshop's million tutorials).  Enjoy!

Now you've said it - it's obvious 😣

 

Nice work on the Orb piece.  Great colours .  There's something very calming about teal blue

I think I've only ever used Metallize a handful of times

 

Congrats on the USA women and the World Cup

Indeed, according to color psychology, blue invoke a sense of calmness.  It is probably why most of my art work, including photo manipulation are either warm or cool, depending on what I am aiming for.  When I use Gradient Mapping, I almost default to orange-to-purple scheme, and overlay it at the final stage because I like how it create an ethereal, fantasy feel to it.

Metallize is basically Curves on steroid and very useful, for me at least, in making object appear metal.  I would love to master your metal work technique you use in your artwork.

Here's the thing, man.  I have not watched one second of the World Cup, and in my unpopular opinion, it is vastly overrated.  More and more, I am pulling away from professional sports as they come across as never-ending divas.  With that said, there is something to be said about the USWNT winning its fourth Cup, and being the standard bearer for women around the world, and I believe I have read that Europe is now focusing their effort to bring professional women club up to par.  Now, if the USMNT would get up to their European and Brazilian counterparts, then they won't be a laughing stock anymore.  Unfortunately, the power-that-be successfully ran off Jurgen who was trying to rebuild the pipeline to the men national team to be on equal footing as say the Barclay League.  I think the tides are shifting in favor of soccer (to use American parlay) because more parents are becoming concerned with concussion syndrome from repeated violent blows to the head in football (using American parlay again).  I would not be surprised if the next decade see America reaching prominence to be on par with Europe and Brazil.  Right now, in America, football is king, followed by baseball, basketball, and then hockey.  Soccer is becoming more popular thanks to the success of Major League Soccer that is trading with football clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United, etc.

That's out-of-this-worldly @TrevorOutlaw  <3   Mysterious with a bit of fear thrown in.

 

Don't think I'd want to be that guy...a long hallway with a door at the end....😨

 

Great job! The coloring makes it. :)
