Image Umbrella: Realistic Images

Recommended Posts

@Kemaru, nice radio, I like the mesh of the speaker

@Bjarni, very nice, the brush is awesome did you do that on Paint.net? I think it is done you don't need to change or add any thing as I think.

@Chris_84, nice one there, remind me of AC vent :)

Chris that's a nice image, are you planning on using it as a sig? I would if I were you.

here is my play around of another image I've in the works.

thumb here larger version in my gallery pg 80 or I've also placed a copy on my DA.

Bjarni those look like very nice pieces of jewelry. one thing you might try now is to take one of them and semi follow Helen's tut viewtopic.php?f=31&t=31064 using a oval shape to see if you can get some shine and depth.

just use the tut as a guideline to how she did the white outline and blurs etc.

well I've done the dragon as far as I can take it. He will be worked into the Myth and Magic image as next step.

see full size on pg 81 of my gallery. Includeds wip shots and a diversion image of this dragon on pg 80.

100% paint.net no renders.

That's very good for a first realistic picture InteractiveBuddy :)

To make the floor more realistic I would start with going Layers > Rotate/Zoom... and use the Roll/Rotate function to create some perspective.

If you want the bars to cast shadows you can make some black lines on a new layer where the bars are. Then blur them and use rotate/zoom

th_shadow.png Here's a quick example. click it to see it bigger

Keep on working with it :D

Edit: Oma both those dragonpics are amazing :shock: :D

@ Bjanri Very pretty. Try the Metallize plugin on the gold outlines and it would make it more realistic looking.

@ Oma, Wow, beautiful dragon. Simply amazing. Makes my Puff the Magic Dragon look not so magic. :lol:

@ Interactive Buddy, Great idea! I have had a prison cell on my to do list for a long time but there is one idea that I want to ad to it that I just haven't figured out just yet. Great job. I think with the changes to the perspective on the floor and additional shadowing it will be a top notch work.

This is something I finished about a week ago. I had to let it set for a long time to get the idea completed in my mind. Something Welsh Blue did gave me the inspiration to get back to work on it and I finished it in no time. This is....

@Possum: I wanted to compliment again on your work. I love the rocks, bamboo, the frog, and everything else. Very beautiful!

Possum, that is really trippy.

Here's a small banner I worked on to promote my website. I wanted to get the most realistic look I could....I found a few good techniques for replicating the look of wool. The only thing I didn't make is the jump badge.

That is really good Fallschirmjäger, everything is so reallistic. i am sorry, but the wood is my least favorite part of the picture though. just some constructive criticism.

Hi Heat Stroke,

The background on the image isn't meant to be wood (Although now that Ii think about it, it does have a slight resemblance if you're not keen in the field of German Paratrooper uniforms).

It's meant to be a camouflaged paratrooper smock. Here's the piece I made for a back background (resized)

Considering most of it would be hidden, I didn't bother detailing it too much.

Here's one of the links I used as a reference for the smock:

i guess i should tell you what my favorite part is. i really like the gold piece, it is very reallistic.

Don't worry. I know not everybody here is as interested in Fallschirmjäger uniforms as I am.

Thanks. Somebody emailed me the badge, but it needed a lot of work before it looked like that.

I like the style of your work, Possum, I can see exactly how you make certain objects and it starts me thinking on how I can use the same techniques in my own art.

Thank you. I have a pretty simple style so it's easy to see how I do much of my work. I learned from Ash that many times doing things the old fashion way, and not expecting everything to come from a plugin (I often did in the past), results in a better image and a deeper knowledge of PdN. It has made a big difference to me.

I am still wondering why you did not like these images I made a while ago:

Now, Am I so arrogant to think at least one of them deserved a place in the Galleria? :oops: :lol:

So long, Ciao, ciao :D

topezia your last image is quite large i suggest resizing it. And you art is good but most of it could use some work. The background in the fifth image detracts from the foreground of the image. Keep at up the good work and maybe one day you will get a piece in the galleria.

I missed you, topezia! And I was actually looking for images you made in the galleria (not too long ago) and to my surprise, there were none. I know I nominated a few. :|
