Image Umbrella: Realistic Images


Recommended Posts

That is possibly the best spacescape for a first post i have ever seen :D , keep on at it solstyce, you could become a really skilled artist.

The shadow is a little too sharp, and shouldn't the sun be adjusted to the left a bit? Other than that your picture is awesome ;).

A simple way to create a spacescape background is to render clouds on a top layer, use a bit of curves for colour, distort it a bit and set the blend mode to screen.

check out the spacescape tutorials around the forum for inspiration (heres a good one: Link)

Very nice Falken! I especially like the way it looks as if you are in a nebula or something.

Here is my latest spacescape:


If someone thinks it's decent I might even make it into a sig or something.

Solstyce that is a superb texture on your first spacescape. Very realistic. I like it.

Second one is very `fluid' thanks to that twist.

I agree with Frontcannon. If you have not started a gallery yet you should. Looks like you`ve got some great pieces to show off.

Getting away from space, mine is something I used in the food comp. A nice cup of strong tea. :)

looks really bright for some reason...maybe darken the background just a tad to make all edges at least slightly visible. Awesome coffee cup. Not an expert on coffee and tea colors, but that sorta looks like creamy coffee...I like it XD

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

I think I spot on the left side of the cup, lower line, a part where it goes a tiny bit over the side of the cup. It could just be in my head, since I see something similar on the other side that looks just fine as it is.

Other than that, it is an absolutely marvelous rendering of a teacup, especially the subtle but effective reflection on the side facing the vewer. It really adds to the realism and dimension of the piece.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Coffee? You can tell this is an American forum! sHa_hehe.gif

Never noticed those jaggies, thanks Chris.

Zizoiz I can see what you mean. Just seems to stick out a bit. I think it deceiving though because I used the shape of the cup to crop the line so it should`nt be any wider than that.

Now I`m off to get a real cup of tea.
