Image Umbrella: Realistic Images


Recommended Posts

@barbieq, I like the jewel piece!

The border around the jewel looks really nice and gold like.

Background rocks too :D

How about this new spacescape of mine? ( I know it comes no where close to rivaling falken's but i though i would give it a try)

Any sugestions are greatly welcome because im still looking to fix this piece up :)

What is the blurry bit at the top & bottom of the planet? Needs a bit of AA there or lose it. Don't like the cross shaped star.

I do like the planet texture & the nebula (?) to the right. That is really well done. You are improving each time.

I believe the Blurry spot at the top left of the planet is supposed to be a sun glare if im correct?

(correct me if im wrong mayor.)

@Spin, yes thats right. Didn't turn out to well :lol:

On the whole the image is good just needs a tweak. Don't toss it because it is salvagable & worth it.

You can easily correct this if you still have the .pdn file. (I highly recommend saving the .pdn & again in another format such as .png or the horrible .jpg).

With the magic wand select the outside of the planet layer. Go to the layer(s) with the sun reflection & delete.

OJ glass is good at the top but the bottom really lets it down.

I still have the .pdn but the thing is when ever i erase the glow around the planet it leaves a dark spot in front of the planet which i think looks even worse (i think its because of the clouds needed to make the nebula.)

I could post a screenie if you need to see what i mean.

@ Barbieq, I think it is the best jeweled piece you have done to date. It's simply beautiful ! The background is stunning, the gold setting is intricate but not over done, but most of all the jewel is breathtaking. The light reflections you added make it shimmer. Beautiful !

@ Mayor, I think it looks really good. I agree, I don't like the large blurry cross shaped star. I think you could benefit from the star brush someone posted in the Custom Brushes mini thread. Still, I think it's pretty good. Nice texture on the planet, nice gaseous clouds, and a dense starfield. Keep up the good work. I think you have really improved in the past couple of weeks. I'm looking forward to seeing more stuff from you.

This is a piece I posted in my gallery a few days ago. I've been busy on a new project and didn't take the time to post it until now.

I must warn you, it's a very large piece. 1440 X 900 pix.

Barbieq & 0(-.-)0 : thanks for the comments

@ Trine0 : I'm going to add more into the work, part body, change the background etc. but my weird sense of humour took over and i just thought the expression on his face kind of suited his head floating around on an abstract background with him saying " What the h*** is this, where's ma body ? how did i get here ?" :lol::lol:

Love the baby Panda, great work :)

@ AFG, I know Mark would have been very honored that you created this piece. Thank you very much. It really means a lot to me. It is such an amazing piece, you are a man of rare talent. Thanks again.

@TrineO, That is absolutely fantastic ! I really like the hair texture, it reminds me of how Helen did the fur on her spring kitten. Very very nice.
