Image Umbrella: Realistic Images


Recommended Posts


I'm working on an online game (it will take a while to finish, so don't expect any game yet), and the game is something like ogame, but then better and more rts-like.

off course, for a good game you need good graphics. So here is a galax I will use in the game (or I'll make a better galaxy, and use that one ;)) (and I may need a background in the picture, some stars, still thinking about that...)

the white dots should be stars (as if you didn't know), but the stars need to be this big to actually use the image in the game. if I wouldn't use it for a game, I'd make the stars better. but it's impossible to make a game where you can click the stars to zoom in when they are just one little pixel that isn't even bright. I actually wanted it to be better, but it's just not working for me ;)

I missed quite a lot haven't I?

Lemme start by commenting on stuff from the prev page:

@Crimson--Liking the battery! It's vexel-like :)

@BB00--Cool flaming text :D I especially like the flames at the base

@Oma--It almost looks like super-realistic cabbage :P Pity you were unable to recreate it :cry:

@Purple proximus-- Nicely done. Nice blurring on the skin. But perhaps you should do something on the hat? It's kinda just bleak black :wink:


Underwater scene. This time it's not just an abstract (people who've been on long enough will understand the reference to the other "underwater" piece :P )


I really like the texture I made for the ground.

The ground looks extremely realistic, good job. The light rays, however, don't. Try using lots of white dots, then motion blurring at a high level.

Hmm... Guess you're right about the light rays. Didn't think about doing it that way though. Thanks :)

There have been some really great post but PurpleP... your's is my favorite. Was that your imagination or was there a subject you worked from?

I worked a long time on this one. Not quite how I want it yet but getting there. Any suggestions?

:shock: Woah! I got a look to this section to see what I missed while away and what beautiful images I've seen (gosh you all make me feel like my works are just bloody potato!)

OlavKm, Tourist and Crimson: Really good good jobs!

Oma:Actually I thought it was a photo of a head of lettuce :D Isnt't a shame that there is nothing like i.e. a button which you can push and say save all the steps used for this file? :(

PurpleProximus: You got amazing drawing skills! It is beautiful!

JanettSue: It looks like lead glass mosaic windows you can see in churches, it is just lovely!

Gonna retire in a corner with a donkey cap on on for a while

Ciao :D

Photo of Drawing...or is it?


Not realistic enough for this section?? What if I told you this was done entirely in PdN... ;)

Just click the image to see the original sketch (done with PdN's pencil tool). I was going for a crayon/charcoal effect.

blur, noise, median?

And maybe some Dents, Curves, Vignette...

Splinter, Frosted Glass, Noise, Unfocus Blur, Fragment, Brightness/Contrast, Curves+, various Blending Modes and yes, Vignette...

No tutorial on this as I did not write down the steps and the image was flattened too many times for me to reconstruct the process. Thanks for the comments though. :D


Oh, and my tablet was used in the original sketch.
