@Born2KillX

not bad... i like the little blue arura thing in the bottom left corner, also, i was wondering if it would be possible to make a "graphical" sun, with the sunspots and all, i'am going to try it, i think i have an idea...

I made that using Chris's starfield tutorial, trickman's sun recommendation, a gaussian blur at 18 pixels, and a glow. Well, actually, another glow after Chris said it was a little dark.

Cool!

And I added the Made with Paint.NET button! I tried to make an image map thing for the button but it kept messing up so I gave up. The link was going to go to Paint.NET's site. CMD give me advice, you're a web page designer, arent you...? I'm only 11... But I am computer crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy... 1337 :wink:

@Born2Killx: Nice sig, although I have no idea what runescape is. Also, no image maps in phpbb. Sorry.

Idea influenced by watching too many Spore previews in one night (I'm on the eleventh time now). Yet it won't come out till EA's first fiscal quarter '07. :cry: :x drool.gif

I am going to start posting jpegs (or gifs if needed) from now on. Large pngs take a long time to load on dialup (using a friends internet connection...eek)

a planet layer and a glow layer make the nice outline. The glow layer is a duplicate of the planet layer that has been blurred and has had the Glow effect applied to it.

I also use noise, frosted glass, sharpen, blur, etc. to achieve the look of the planets. On top of the oil painting starfield, it gives nice particle effects.

Here is a corona'd version of earth I achieved with a similar method:

Something I've been toying with:

pdn30logo_small.png

Reasons for wanting a new logo:

* Change is good, and refreshing

* We only have our current icon at up to 128x128. With a new one designed from scratch (by me!) we have it at up to 2048x2048. This makes it easy to provide a 256x256 icon for Windows Vista, and to publish higher resolution logos.

* It's fun

And yeah the thing was done entirely in Paint.NET ... a mix between 2.6x and 3.0. The latter has better text rendering.

Well part of the reason it looks smoother is because that PNG is resized from an original that is 6000 x 1216 ;) But yeah, I finally found out how to make GDI+ draw text that doesn't look, as one user described it, "anemic" (I'm not making this up!).

Awesome Rick! I've never been able to do per-pixel image editing.. :(

EDIT: I've noticed that image is called "pdn30logo_small"

If that's small.. what's big? :shock:

EDITEDIT: New sig. Here's a bigger version with a few minor differences. I realised this size was too big for a sig:

Like I said, the original is 6000 x 1216 :) The "tetris" design on that sig you did is pretty cool, although the "Paint.NET User" text could use some anti-aliasing. (in v2.64, I recommend drawing the text at 2x the size you want, then using Image->Resize to cut it in half and smooth it out)

In fact, to put things in to more perspective... the brush alone is an 18-layer 2048x2048 image that takes about 400 MB to load on my system. The icon is then a 10-layer 2048x2048 image, where the brush takes up 1 layer (flattened, the copy+paste and rotate to the right angle). Lastly, the full logo is a 12-layer 6000x1216 image (one layer for the icon).
