Forgive me for the small size, I started with a small canvas. Major credit to El3ment4l on deviantART, his work is the main inspiration for this.

@Bryan: Maybe post the images themselves, rather than a download link?

@Aguba: To get rid of the aliasing, try working on a canvas twice the size you want the finished version to be. After you're done with the image reduce the size (don't forget to save the big image).

I know, thanks for the tip. I'm not sure why I started with such a small size. Also, what I did to achieve the 3D effect was repeatedly duplicating the layers and moving them 1px down from the previous layer. All that antialiasing stacked on top of eachother might have contributed to the aliased edges as well.

You're welcome.

I really like it, the 3D effect is good and the lighting is realistic. :) The white outline looks sweet.

I made a PSP wallpaper, I'm posting it here and later on dA:

Kemaru, I'm not so much a fan of the colors, but I like the design a lot. My vote's on the centered logo version. Can we get a link to the desktop-size version?

Also, aguba, that's now my desktop. :wink:

Took ~3 hours, made from scratch in Paint.NET. I don't suppose this fits the WOTW theme...

@Kemaru: Love it, especially that subtle shadow behind the logo. Had my PSP still been working, that would be my wallpaper.

@Eslador: I like the lighting and the concept itself. Also, again, forgive me for the small size of the wallpaper :P

Just wanted to drop by and tell you how much I really like this work. I haven't seen 3D work on this forum in a long time, and it was refreshing to see this. Also glad to see you are still posting on the board. As for your method, I find that using drop shadow or pryochild's outline object will work. I got inspired to make a 3D project. Thanks for the inspiration! :idea:

Thanks Nab, I really did like those highlights. Here's another. I really don't think I did as good as a job with this one. And there's some of that aliasing again :roll:

aguba, that is just beautiful! :shock: I like. I know there's aliasing, but it can be fixed if it was started at a big image, and resized before you saved it as a png file. I really need to get cracking with 3D...I keep getting sidetracked by all the glass work I had been making. :?

Edit: Quick question: are you using pyrochild's Outline Object set at 90 degree angle? I find that if you start with a small value and repeat (CTRL+F) several times, it might make the aliasing disappear. Thoughts?

Thank you very much :D

And no, I duplicate the original layer several times, moving each a pixel down from the last. What I used to do was motion blur the image at a 90 degree angle and then either repeatedly duplicate it or use the Transparency adjustment to make it opaque, but in my experience this just generally led to more aliasing.

I will try out that method however. If it works, I owe you one :wink:. And I can't wait to see some of that glass work you mentioned :).
