The Pictorium! Post your created or edited images here!

For my 300th post, here's my new sig - based on a couple of wallpapers I made a while back.

CSD.pngCSG.pngCSB.png

The text at the bottom of the sig is actually three separate links to some of my personal pages.

You can see the original pieces here: All In and here: Snake Eyes

youre so good it makes me ill with envy. (joking) Those cards are unbelievable.

If you're interested, here's one of the original cards and the Shape 3D .xml (just copy the .xml file to the Paint.NET User Files folder and load it with the Shape 3D plugin).

@olav.k.m thanks

Thanks oma. As for the magnifying glass I started of with your glass tutorial, but i found that the lens effect looked better than what i managed to make... :P

Do you have a deviant art page?

No, I have a photobucket account, but i guess that's not the same. Maybe I'll make one.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is oma german for grandmother?

Yep, that it is! And Oma is, in fact, a grandmother. But I don't believe she's German...I think she comes from Canada...

Oh, and yes, you should undoubtedly create a deviantART account.

yes OMA means grandmother I might be old in bod but I'm young in mind. love learning new things, and this paint.NET forum has kept me on my toes, all the young ones are so talented its hard to keep pace. But I love every min. of the challenge.

look forward to seeing you on deviant art. there is a group of us paint.NET users over there and some real good galleries. let us know here when you get set up so we can add you to our friends list.

@ agent387 you need a bit more contrast in the orange one. I can't make out all the work you put into making this . I like the color combination of your avatar that's easier on the eyes to read, perhaps a bit more contrast and you will be happier with the new sig.

well there isn't any one thing I do. but mainly, when you stop and think a picture is done, leave it for say a week or so and then add 10 things a day to it, for another week. it can be a rotation , a color change etc etc. when you think originally you might be done ... you are NOT done ..you are only starting. many of my pieces take over 100 to 150 layers (not saying I keep that many open) i merge and merge. rest the peice for a day or so , I found that the eraser is my best tool ever! i might do a flip of layer and only keep the top left portion or so before merging. or duplicate a layer and move the picels and downsize that duplicated layer, and color change it etc etc.

and when you get something good don't forget an interesting background. (that can be another 10 or so layers.)

trick is to feel the piece, when I start something I have a mood never a set picture in mind. If I achieve a set mood with the piece, I'm more than happy. I tend to stay away from dark colors because I have poor eyesight and the details are lost to me. but i seldom use primary colors often I pick the color I like then open the more portion and down or up the hue. never well seldom never primary.

biggest hint I can give you...... have fun, don't be afraid of the critiques on the board this forum is fantastic.. they all want you to succeed and will suggest things to you..take those critiques as complements that someone on the board cares to help you improve and you will accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible with such a great free program.
