@ Olav ... an accidental discovery ...

Put your wood texture on top and play with opacity, set to overlay ;)

So I tried it out, kind of.. :roll:

Didn't quite manage to get the splintered effect in your picture, so I rather messed around with it a bit.

Even though the outcome differs I think your hexagonal grid base really added a cool effect to the wood, so thanks :P

Wow, another amazing wood texture Welshblue ! You never cease to amaze me with the wood textures you create.

@ Olav, your's came out beautifully !

Speaking of wood. This is some of the wood texture technique I've picked up from Welshblue in the past year and a half. Also, when I had trouble with getting the strings to look realistic, he had an answer for that as well. This is a continuation of the Bluegrass pieces I started last year.

Awesome Welshblue, love the background, is it an edited version of another day gone? those muted out colours give a nice atmosphere.

(I've already Faved it on Deviantart)

@Falken, doesn't really seem like you but the texture is great :lol: Although i do not (like Chrisco) like the rings. And im sure your going to add a spectacular Nebula/Galaxy thingamabob in the background B)

@Bizor, A neat idea you have. Although the (tiles?) themselves are a little blurry and AA. Otherwise its a pretty cool idea. Maybe think about adding some water to it?

@ Bizor: Don't really know what it's supposed to be, so dunno if it's very realistic or not. I still like it though, it has a cool futuristic feel to it. Don't think it looks completely finished though, it does have potential so it would be cool to see if you could work it into a bigger picture.

@ LFC4EVER: Seeing the thumbnails I thought it was just going to be a clouds, noise, motionblur kind of fur, but that looks really good. The (lighter) wavy hairs stand out in a good way, making the fur look "sharp" and detailed.

Thanks. :)

the lighter hairs stand out because each shade of each strand of hair was done invdividually (gradient bars :)), but i've still gotta get the layered look right, it seems off to me at second glance.

Merry Christmas

All in all, I think it looks pretty amazing. I can't even think of how you did that. Looks like bear fur. Grizzly bear fur, the meanest fur around. :lol:

I've commented on it before, but can repeat that I think the phone looks excellent. I agree with chrisco97 that it's a bit pixelated/aliased in some areas, but that's the only flaw in a great looking picture. I think the background looks good too, kinda looks like northern lights. :)

Here's one from me:

It looks great! One suggestion: use a small touch of color on the clouds and on the water. Even a barely visible tint would make a large difference. A slight blue on the clouds and a touch of green in the water would do the trick. Then make the land a little more hazy. Add some clouds and decrease transparency perhaps. The colors there are too vibrant. Other than that, it looks pretty real!
