Janetsue has got some nice work. Here is my marble rendering...I forgot to use antiailising.

th_amarble.jpg

Fix round shape AA problems by selecting the Rim of the object.

Center the object 1st

Use :EllipseSelectTool: to make a round selection just a bit smaller than the object. Then Ctrl + I (Invert selection)

Then a touch of radial blur.

Done.

Alright - thanks for the comments everyone

@ Ash -- AA is really hard for that text... I think I'll just do it again using alphamask plugin instead of magic wand to help.

@ janettsue -- great job! that pic is really coming along -- good job on the textures

@ tourist -- sweet job on the marble - and yeah, besides the AA problems it's really good

Did you make the text? If you did, it should be easier to AA

If not...Why not? :D

@oma: check your PM

OOh! very good improvement -those fins are really good - and I like how you added the swirling water and terrain - great job!

@Ash - I might...have...flattened and then improved from version 1 to 2......

the whale and the seeweed is disproportional. In comparison a whale is much larger. ATM it just looks like a sand shark because of the illusion the disproportion is giving off.

I usually dont post abstracts but I liked this one a lot. Took longer than it looked trying to get the swing to work with me and against me and I had to listen to the song a thousands times as I drew it with the song instead of just trying to get a strawberry.

Looks good Vlad!

Ok, so I did some messing around with the generic XP logo. here is the before:

windows-logo.jpg

Then, by used of blurring, layer blend modes, and of course black and white with some curving magic I came up with XP Steel Logo

After that, I decided to recolor them all. This is a lot more pleasant imo than the original.

For an even better steel look, you could try adding reflections of something, tighter gradients, and/or a brushed texture, etc.. Right now it's just boring grey ;)

I tried some of your suggestions and ogt a glossier black version that I am actually liking a lot, but I know that it is not a steel feel at all. Perhaps you could post an example?

Alright, tighter gradients. I also sperated the white glares and screened them. I really like this, and it may actually be Black Steel. Now I have to go mod my XP theme!

Olav: The shadow of the tree seems a little too soft and bright on the second floor, but very well done, maybe you should add some cracks in the bricks so it harmonizes even more with the original building^^
