The Pictorium! Post your created or edited images here!

Recommended Posts

Post Scriptum: I don't want to be boring, but I have something to say about the use of the Pictorium. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that it should be a collection of the best pictures from the PdN users community, and possibly comments on them. A guest visiting it should say: "oh, what beautiful things you can do with PdN!". An exibition of the power of the gradient tool with enormous, useless pictures or debating on which tool is more powerful pollutes the Pictorium. I think we all should avoid pollution, if possible. Thanks.

I missed this part of your post, and I Agree with this.

New comers can come in and see just what PDN can really do, usually will make them want to try PDN even more.

I played a little bit around with the gemstone tut ....

Lens on the stone makes it a bit more real

Considering this might be cluttering up the pictorium I'm asking just who is going to decide which art falls into which catagory. I'd like your opinion is my art beginner level, intermediate or advanced? I think a bit of all three as I try out new items. The pictorium is where back ages ago I showed a bit of glass work, seems it sparked a lot of work in perfecting glass and transparencies, Verndewds tut for sigs came from that. I might not be the best at drawing but what I put up is the best of my ability. The pictorium is just that pictures, good, bad, in between. Maybe instead there should be just a showcase where the mods go thru once a week and pick several to showcase of different styles, color combinations that are pleasing to the eye, innovative work. Perhaps these can be in a separate file, but don't become elitist in a picture display area. This is the area of the forum that sparks some new beggining artists to continue and become better.

At Oma: I also partially described splitting it by Genres. Have a Pictorium for Abstract, and for Realism, and for Works in Progress. Each would also have an individual discussion thread, so that each Pictorium is pure work, not talk. I also like your idea, where mods would select the best from the week, the only problem is that is asking for a lot of work on a mods job :D

This is my last word on this topic, since this post also pollutes the Pictorium. What I wanted to say in my "post scriptum" is that everyone should publish here only its best pictures. There is no requirement that they are all excellent pictures: simply do your best and then post it here. I worked on PdN for a month before posting something, and I now try to maintain the number of my post at a minimum to increase the average quality of them (and therefore the average quality of the Pictorium). As an example, I think we should avoid to post here a picture only for requesting suggestions on how to improve it. There may be a place specifically assigned to this sake.

Bye

Pyjo.

I would disagree. Why not create a thread called "PDN Showcase" or something and let the mods populate it with what they believe are the best photos? People need a place to say "hey look at what I made! :)" and I think the pictorium is that place.

so I'm going to try the freehand drawing contest. this cheats a bit but its my practice car. any hints or advise before I start the actual car for the contest?

It needs a better wet floor effect.

I think you are not selecting where you want your reflection to go before running the effect.

Look at the picture in step 3: http://boltbait.googlepages.com/reflections

right o got the instructions from both you and cjmcguinness that's exactly what I'd been doing incorrectly. That is why I love the pictorium, great place to pick up tips and tricks.

thanks all.
