next time make your title more specific please.

I just posted to make basic shapes in the pictorium, using the cube you should be able to do this pretty easily, if you want it looking more realistic ther are a couple guys on these forums that are amazing at creating glass, if not itd be quite simple to color with some texture and shading.

I would suggest trying to draw the shape first, check out my post on the pictorium if your not sure how to do this.

The biggest thing with glass is that it doesn't really look like glass unless the background changes around it. Glass won't look like much of anything on a single color background or something. True glass looks like glass because it distorts the image slightly when you look through it. It can be very hard to simulate...

Anyway, for the fishtank, you could take a look at this example I made.

basicfishtank.jpg

Click the picture to download a .zip with Shape3D settings and example .pdn file

Getting 'true' glass depends entirely on the background it's going to be on. But simple things like the shine (those two streaks) I gave the 'glass' in the example really help.

Hope all that helps. :) Remember that you'll need to play with the Shape3D settings to make everything line up correctly in every picture.

Something like this? it could be modified, the coloring probably needs a little work, and maybe some more flowers or something. but if this is kinda wat you were looking for i can show you how.

theres many ways to add a image here are a couple.

easiest way right below this box click browse. then find your file, then click add the file.

another way is to go to http://www.photobucket.com make an account (its free) then you pretty much do the same thing, but after you upload the image onto photobucket you copy and paste the direct link (ull see this once you upload it) *direct%20link%20here thats wat you have to do. i use photobucket cus it saves my images to there site, therefore backing them up.

edit:monster i got to get some sleep, i promise ill show you how to make a flower pot tomorrow, its almost 2 am lol. and i work at 5 lol, ill talk to you tomorrow!

^^^^you got the picture uploading down.

here's a little tut i came up with.

Flower pot

Before any of this make sure your :AntiAliasingOff: anti alias is off, this will make it easier to color.

First select the ellipse tool and create an oval, do this on a new layer that way it will be transparent.

1-9.jpg

Next click the duplicate layer button, now you should have to ovals, select the selected pixel move tool and move it up.

2-6.jpg

Now draw to lines connecting the ovals and clean up with the eraser tool if needed.

3-5.jpg

Now merge down your layers so all these steps ^^ are on one layer.

Then duplicate that layer, hold down the shift button and resize it so its just a little smaller than the top half, then move it into place.

4-5.jpg

Select the line tool and connect the top and the bottom, i didnt connect the end of the ovals i moved my line tool in to give it some shape, because the top and bottom of a flower pot arent the same size.

5-1.jpg

Now it still looks a little flat, so i added a few more ovals to give it some shape, you can do this simply by duplicating the top or bottom layer then resizing and moving it.

7-2.jpg

^ i forgot to clean up the bottom earlier so i did it at this step, just use the eraser.

Now for the dirt were going to merge all the layers together. Then add a new layer. Move this layer down below the outline layer. Select a dark brown (i used 351B13), select with the magic wand the dirt part on the outline, then click on the layer below it and fill it with the paint bucket.

8-1.jpg

Then go to effects/noise/add noise/turn the color saturation down all the way/then the noise to about 30, this makes it look more like dirt.

9.jpg

Now to color the actual pot just use the same method above with out the noise, you some different browns, here's what i came up with.

10.jpg

i used a reflected gradient for the main part, and texture on the other parts.

I just used the flower tut for the flowers, ill add the url for it in a few.
