@LFC4EVER wow, what did you do to the tire, it looks much real and rubbery, great job I will try to do this effect to the whole tire, and thanks so much.

@ oma, the flower is wonderful, I saw it in Fans with large size and left some comments.

@topezia:P Beautiful cat in good animation, I like the slow motion, makes the cat so lazy, :idea: what about moving her tail as well? :lol: I am laughing, it is so lovely.

@ topezia :D Welcome back, it's great to see you :D

I agree with everyone ... great animation, and Yellowman's right, the lazy, hot day look, suits him/her perfectly

I'm smiling for 2 reasons ... the cat and to see your name up there :wink:

Omigosh! I'm not sure if I dare even show this amongst these few pages of awesomeness.. :oops: :mrgreen:

ruusu.th.png Trust me, it looks better fullview.. :roll:

Had this inexplicable surge of making a flower.. I searched a nice picture of a rose and only by paintbrush and many layers and varying transparencies and whatnot that is what came up.. the original which's background can still be seen distorted was a good deal smaller; it's not fake :twisted:

Escapist angel: the thumbnail of the rose is lovely.

Welshblue and Yellowman thanks and Welsh so glad to see you too! (going to see your wonders soon). The animation was a joke while I am still working on the cat image but I got so frustrated cause due to my stupid error I had to delete the last frame (cat's eye fully opened) I tried to resize all the frames but no way last image kept bumping :lol:

Ciao see you soon!

I bet you even like to unwrap and rewrap your Christmas gifts. :lol: :wink:

Now.. thats an idea. :idea: :mrgreen:

No problem yellowman. I took your tyre texture, extracted the black and white part of the bevel onto new layers. Set the blend mode to the white bevel to overlay and lowered a bit of opacity. i set the black bevel to reflect and lowered opacity. Then i just ran S3D with your xml file, but i lowered light intensity to give a more realistic look. :)

topezia, that cat is really cool. :)

The only minor quip I have is that the four solar panels on the top and bottom (or whatever you call those flat panels you have sticking out from the top and bottom) should have shadows as well, preferably on the left side.

Other than that, splendid job :)

Actually, it is missing some shadows, but not where you think.

Since the light is coming from lower right.

Ask me via PM or something if you still free like fixing it, Goon.

Topezia it is great to see you here. The cat is just great and such fun. If she were white she would look like my cat.

EscapistAngel roses are not easy to do yours is lovely.

Goonfella even with a few shadow problems your image is super.

I think I have worked on this too long all I can see is what I wish I had done different. Good news is that I almost never delete anything when it comes to my pdn files so there is hope for improvement. If there were a contest for who has the largest pdn files I would for sure be in the running. Also this year I have started doing my images 2400x1800 and 200 resolution instead of 800x600.

It looks like the solar panels are glowing so maybe a reflection of that glow? Maybe? Possibly? Heck what do I know ! It's FREAKIN' AWESOME GOON ! WOW !

Yes there are some shadows missing, but as dark as the image is in total, don't you think it would spoil the image over all to add more darkness? Hmmmm? I don't know, I'd leave it as is myself. Possum said in a tiny voice.......

I finished my bluegrass instruments tonight....

Thanks for all the comments guys - much appreciated. :wink:

Ash - thanks for the offer but I`m going to give this one a rest for now. Seems like I`ve been working on it forever. I think I know where you mean though. :wink:

Possum - love your bluegrass instruments.Superb detail.

That background is nice as well and complements the instruments nicely. :D

wow Goonfella that space station turned up to a real image, you know what, I like this image very much and I downloaded it, the shortcut of the file is on my desktop, and whenever I sit infront of my PC I double click that shortcut and just enjoying the view :D really really amazing it worth's all that time you spent on, great image man, take a break, and waiting to see some more complete images like this, but don't take a long break, ok :lol:

@ Possum Roadkill, say cheese, click, two, man and woman both well dressed stand up before the camera to take their pic, and they choose a very nice background for their shot :) , awesome clean varnished bluegrass love all the fine details on them, and the background is just suited the image well done.

Possum Roadkill

Very nice work, the guitars are realitically shaped and overall execution is excellent.

The background doesn't match the guitars at all, though.

It doesn't look bad, but it's just not fitting imo.

It may fit the bluegrass theme, but not the 'guitar-as-an-instrument' theme, you know? ;)

@Goonfella: That spaceship is super!

@JanettSue: I always love to watch at your paintings, this one is magic!

Now the only one who should be upset for this is Paul Gaugin actually, as I used one of his women as a model :lol:

Lovely Sunday to you all

@ LFC4EVER : Thanks ,nice to see you!

@Possum Roadkill : Love the image of the guitars, agree they need a different background to better stand out

@Hi Helen :) thanks, but I am always so frustrated when it comes to human figures actually the only thing I like is her face, her arm is out of proportion and need to work on hand and feet and many other details, may be next time I'll try I am going to use separate layers for each part of the body :wink:

@Sharp: Lovely planet

Ciao

@A Fleeting Glimpse: Being a member of the club of the crazy diamonds :wink: I had to add a comment:

Beautiful interpretation! Thorgenson would agree with that, not one of my fav covers though. I would only add something to smooth a bit the the bottom of the hills (may be a soften portrait)

Shine on! :)
