My new Ubuntu wallpaper:

I'm using it right now!

Did you compile PDN under [miguel's version of .net, whatchamacallit] or are you using wine, etc? Or just dual booting Windows? I'd like to know if it's possible to get PDN running "natively".

I think uH means he is using that wall paper now.

If I am wrong, I would like to know how as well :)

If I could get PDN to work on Ubuntu I would make the full switch in a heartbeat instead of dual booting :?

@Ash: all i can say is what the hell... cant believe that pumpkin is 100% pdn... especially the stalk (or the branch, or the handle of the pumpkin or whatever you call it.) it looked so realistic. do you use a tablet?

honestly, i stared at the thing for like, 5 minutes...

Thank you 8)

:) I wish I had a tablet :?

I am not sure maybe call it the stem?

Glad you notice that part too, I did the stem the last and I really wanna make it look real,

if I didn't, I feel it would "waste" the hard work I did on the pumpkin/Jack-o-lantern. :D

Here's the version with out the eyes and mouth, enjoy! :lol:

My take on Helio's sig:

(img)

Just a quick hack job. I'm sure he could do better.

Cool, thanks! I am updating it, including making it transparent so that it will look good on bright forum skins (usedHONDA-ish).

I can assure you that everything is entirely made in Paint.NET, unless it is said that such and such programs were used (Terragen, GIM.. *shot* ). Some people do use tablets, but the only one I can think of off the top of my head is aatwo.

You guys make this ONLY in paint.net, or you use some more programs or utilities, or pen tablet and such?

I want the publicly recognize this as the single most flattering compliment anyone on this forum has/will ever receive...

Btw, like Helio said, anyone who respects the nature and spirit of this forum will specify in the post if they used anything other that Paint.NET to create what they posted.

And moi, but I haven't really posted my work here, and the stuff I do is more photo manipulation; the tablet makes it much easier for smoother curves and such, nothing like aatwo's style.

Practice and (my favourite) experimentation makes perfect. Always (well, almost always, you have to want to learn something to be able to do it at the end of it all).

And also, look for inspiration, and try to duplicate things (like Drakaan). It's awfully good practice!

A bot in few steps:

1.start a white image 800x600

2.use the Shape3d plugin: sphere, light:on, x for light=0

3.enlarge canvas to 800x1200, with image in top position...

4.use the tube effect to distort the sphere and obtain a shape for the face (vertical only).

5.use the tube effect to create over shapes (H=200,V=200)

6.use the glassy button tut for the eyes.

7.etc...
