New Stuff:

This gallery has been flying haphazardly through the Pictorium for far too long. :-) I've placed new items at top, older items below.

Most of my work is simple photo manipulation: punching a photo up to make it look a little better. So I took the image at left, and better-ified it into the image on the right:

In the original, her color washes out in the background's brightness. Increasing the color saturation pulls my lovely lady forward, making her more prominent.

Also, my Stargate Universe sig/av pair:

(Quote by David Blue's character, Eli Wallace, on the new TV show "Stargate Universe." You can catch it on Hulu, and I highly recommend it. Posted October 17, 2009)

Tilt Shifting (Wiki this)! I turned

( Link to original / Link to Final )

Want to know how? Here's the tutorial.

My Signatures and Avatars:

(My least favorite sig/av combos are now hidden. Feel free to unhide if you'd like to take a look, but my gallery was getting pretty big.)

Hidden Content:
First Ever (Shudder):

avatar.pngsignature.png

(I guess I thought Shape3D was cool...)

david.atwell to the Future:

(The update is better- viewable below)

Glass Block:

project.pngsig.png

(I always planned to add more cracks to this. Never happened.)

September 11 memorial:

911av.png911sig.png

(Yay, overlays!)

da Vinci:

av.pngnewnewsig.png

(One of my favorites. This one lasted almost six months.)

Thanksgiving da Vinci:

thanksgivingsig.png

(Post-its rock!)

Christmas 2007:

christmasav.pngchristmassig.png

(I like the shattered look...)

Flight:

shuttle.png

(Found a cool image. Messed with it.)

david.atwell to the Future- Part II:

shuttlesig.png

(Update of my favorite concept. This one uses Alpha Mask for a much better effect than Feather, which the previous one used.)

Filler Comic:

sunsetsig.png

(Five minute job on the sunset. I thought it was interesting.)

Indiana Jones:

daindy-av.pngdaindy-sig.png

(What? I like Indy, and I'm looking forward to the next one.)

(Hiding some more of my less favorite s/a combos)

Hidden Content:
Chess:

Queenz-sig-1.png

(Chess queens created in Illustrator; sig composed and text added in Paint.NET. This is a placeholder until I can create a new 100% PdN sig.)

Election Day:

Queenz-sig-1-vote.png

(I voted! Image of the "I Voted" sticker from the web; I made it shiny in PdN.)

Veteran's Day 2008:

vetdaysig.png

(Kinda rough around the edges, but it works. Image from Wikipedia.)

Thanksgiving Day 2008:

tgivingav.pngtgivingsig.png

(Quote is Abraham Lincoln declaring Thanksgiving a national holiday, 3 October, 1863)

(Image is from Alfred R. Waud's Sketch of Thanksgiving in camp (of General Louis Blenker) during the US Civil War on Thursday November 28th 1861.)

(I liked this one. It really tells of an understated, community Thanksgiving, as brothers-in-arms take a break from the horror of war to give thanks for the only happy constant in their lives: the camaraderie of their friends.)

Firefly/Serenity:

av-firefly-1.pngsig-firefly.png

(The TV show "Firefly," which gave rise to the film "Serenity." Excellent. You should watch it. Anyway, this is a quote from one episode (by Wash, the pilot, playing with toy dinos):

Stegosaurus: Yes. Yes, this is a fertile land, and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land, and we will call it... "This Land."

Allosaurus: I think we should call it "your grave!"

Stegosaurus: Auugh! Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal!

Allosaurus: Ha ha ha! Mine is an evil laugh! Now die!

Anyway, this one went up in February of 2009.)

Columbine:

columflower.pngApril20sig.png

(A terrible tragedy. Ten years hence, will we still remember?

This one went up between April 20 and May 6, 2009)

Love+Hate:

lovehate-av.pnglovehate.png

(May 2009. A very big departure for me. 100% Paint.NET.)

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thanks, -Expiration-. That means quite a lot, coming from such an artist as you!

@salu: When a mod bans someone, we call it using the banhammer.

Like this: banzored.jpg

Thanks, moeshere- but no swearing, even if it's censored. :-)

@007 Nab- thanks! I'm really looking forward to it, too.

@PoisedMaverick- I'm glad you like it. The cube one was just a Shape3D job on a gradient background, so not too hard...

Hi there "illinamorato" :wink:

I am not a big fan of sigs but I really like your banhammer (hope you are not going to use it much, though) very good choice of text and color and also your previous one with the three vignettes, waiting to see more from you (may be some images?)

Ciao

The 'fight' sig, can you give me the link to original image, thanks!

I like your work!

Thank you! In regards to "Flight," I don't remember what my original looked like. But it was probably one of these:

Clicky!

New stuff, for the first time in a while! I added my Tilt Shifting work, as well as my current signature.
