Recommended Posts

Found the tutorial after I found out how to do this :)

Called it arteries, I don't know why. All of my images are symmetrical :(

Ghastly ^^

Any thoughts? I am working on making 3D ice text, can't find a tutorial on it, can someone help me out? Search is not working for me.

@Aull Arkenbon: I like the first one best, it almost looks like a face, I love it, beautiful. Second is good but nothing compared to the first.
I like them both, but the first one is better. :)

Thanks :D I made them both useing the same process but somehow different outcomes. (And no I don't remember how I made them it was 2:00AM and I was half-asleep)

I like symmetrical :oops: , and I like the first one "ghastly" but there are better things to use than Polar Inversion to make symmetrical objects like viewtopic.php?f=16&t=5334 (which is awesome! 8) )

Yay! (I don't know that it's abstract, but it sure isn't any of the other categories.

@AullArkenbon: I didn't use PI on them, maybe the green/red one, can't remember how I made it, but I don't usually use PI for a lot of things.

Well, I guess that some of my best use them...

Oh well.

Maybe it reflects the hidden crazy you! :lol:

I call this one `Spooky' because if you look carefully you will see a face- well more of a mask actually but is there. I just painted some colours on the canvas,smudged,inverted and then flipped the layers a few times. Too easy really but interesting result.

@aull Arkenbon: try using tumbnails, in case you don't know how:http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=26979

@becauseiwantedto: looks very realistic, just try using alpha masks, and personly I believe it belongs in the realistic part, if not then the compass alone would.

@goonfella: It's not the best abstract of all times, but good effect, try using more colours, I think that would make it look better.

@becauseiwantedto: I like your arteries ,well not your actual ones, you know what I mean :lol: and also the compass picture which I agree with Boude fits more in the realistic section and yes follow Boude's advice about alpha-masking or use more the feather plug-in.

@Goonfella:Not bad, but don't be afraid to use more colors/lights/blur/shadows and effects!

Ciao!

So, any comments?

@becauseiwantedto: That guitar looks pretty good, I haven't seen that tutorial before. I like those two other works too.

@PeterPawn: That looks very good. I like the poisonous feel.

@kemaru: no offence but you already posted that one, and you -

- Try not to post your image right after another user's. Allow some time for people to reply (or give an opinion yourself!)
- made it 3 in a row.

anyway, looks good, but could use more color.

@peterpawn: I love it, but I'm not sure if you should keep it like this or that you should get rid of the egdes.

@goonfella: I'm not a really big fan of halloween, in the Netherlands it's no big deal, but I think it looks too bright and the eyes are just gradients try lowering the opacy of the gradient, but overall: good job.

I did indeed, however I received no comments, so I decided to post it again. I also commented on other's artwork.

@Boude:Yes you could be right about the brightness. Thats my first go at Ashes jewel tut so there is definitely room for improvement there. Thanks for the comments.

Nice and simple as always. It looks like an art work :D Keep up the good work !

here is one i did after seeing something J2K had done with Hex Grid

quite proud actually :D

hyrule i like the green smog effect in the back ground very nice! But i thk you should change the hex sphere alittle. maybe feathering the border so tht i will blend better with the smog? tht's my oppinion.

PS. Any comments on mine please? i dun wana double post ><

@zzz92 I like the minimalist feel to that one. here is one from the other end of the spectrum. Your piece is the color of the rainbow, mine is near black and white. Your piece is so minimal and this one is complicated curves and curves within curves.

enjoy it is called

@oma : thx for the comments :D Well atleast someone did :) Regarding your work, i especallu love yur boreder design. A great use of tiles! I can see that you image only differs by 1 or 2 pictures right?^ ^ most of the effect fone was my using built-in distortions. And tht's the fact that i love the most ! such a beautiful work can be done with the original program itself ! You have mad skills! :D How ever your glass flower [ ? ] looks edgy could use some feathering or maybe some smart blur? But overall i loved it!

@jiZer Like your piece, it looks like ocean's waves, call it the darkness of the ocean :D

@hyrule Like the green ball, I would add some blur to the exagonal grid texture though to blend it a bit

@zzz92 l love the colors

@ Oma Like your Swarovski piece :D (though being a huge fan of colors I could sing Where have all the colors gone? :D )

I call this one In Concert:

Edit: And this is In Concert no 2 (added a stock from the "Eye" screen)
