nicely done. the eyelashes are a tad too uniform and too thick but other than that superb job. I like your skin texture, and coloration. what colors did you use to achieve that?

welcome to the forum and hope to see more artwork from you soon.

ciao

Ugh this sucks. Its corrupt so I trashed it(1st thing ever to be corrupt by me/paint.net before) and I tried to recreate it but dont know how I got the fan edges >.

The shape of the fan could be achieved by Polar Inversion plugin, by setting the Edge behavior to clamp and slide amount to full (4), then apply the Twist plugin with amount of (-8 or -9) :) , then make the wings transparent and add other additions and layers. :wink:

@oma: Although I can clearly see a face in it, what is it supposed to be? As always great work, of course.

I have been playing with Ash's sunset tut, well actually I got to step 3 and then figured out a way I liked mine better. :P

I don't like the orange part at about 1/4 (or 3/4) from the top, the rest I do like.

I really like it. The contrast between the green and orange is very striking and while I wouldn't thing of combining orange and that shade of green, you made it work very well. Very pleasing blending of the colors.

The only thing I would suggest would be that the detail at the waterline (edge of the reflection) should be more pronounced. It would make it appear that there is something on the other side of a lake or bay. You know like when you see a sunset of a lake and you can see the dark silhouette of a tree line across the lake and they reflect in the water along with the clouds and sunset.

This is something I just finished. I did the gemstone tut by Ash earlier this week and wanted to do something with the ruby I made and I thought talisman or amulet. I spent more time on this than anything I have done in PdN to date. It also has more layers than anything I've done. I also used Oma's palm leaf and made it metal for some added detail. The Opal is something I came up with after I did the gemstone tut because I wanted to do something with the gemstones I made and thought I needed an opal and some pearls to go with them. I know that I messed up some of the lighting hi-lights.

@Possum Roadkill: That's really cool and realistic, but the opal looks kinda funky lol.

No surprise here, your work is very inspiring, as is Oma's. There are so many good artists on this forum it's pretty easy to soak up some of the talent through osmosis. There is inspiration around every corner.

Yes it is noise. :wink: Added selective blurs to get the right look. I have always loved opals, the variety is astounding. The second pic is what I used as my model. I think with a little more work a pretty decent opal could be achieved.

Where the wall and floor meets, too blurry, fuzzy...

And I'm sure you didn't need to use stock for the fire place.

I see you put a lot of work into this piece, good job.

Kirby is real? :shock:

Of course :lol:

@ Soul41 ... all of them?

It's mostly the color of the shadows that are throwing me off. In my mind, shadows are supposed to be fully black with various amounts of transparency depending on the lighting, but in your picture, it seems that the shadows are completely opaque.

@ Soul41 ... fair point :wink:

I hadn't noticed until you pointed it out, but the ones like round the picture frame are jumping out at me now. Pop by my gallery and you'll see shadows aren't my strong point - just ask LFC' and Oma :lol:

Thanks for the feedback

hehe. 8)

you can fix the shadows easily.

If they're on their own layer, then just use Hue/Saturation on the shadow layer, set the Lightness to -100. Then just lower layer opacity to match lighting etc.

Also, i'm guessing that the shadow between the wall and the floor is on its own layer. If i'm right, then invert the colours of it, and set its blend mode to colour burn and lower opacity. The edge where the wall and the floor meet is quite close, so you don't need to make the ends really dark. :)

Great work. The knight looks awesome. I love the texture of the stone wall. Must of taken ages.. :)
