'Promise' looks like it will deliver lots of them :D

I've tried for hours to get things as glassy as you do ... hours wasted because I haven't managed it yet :lol:

I think the Droste plug- in is naturally :AntiAliasingOff: (not that I'm complaining)

agreed it is AA off naturally. and that's what I'm trying to get a hold on so when I use the plugin I'll know where to place the jaggies to suit the picture.

I often take plugins and just push the envelope with them. Some of my best experimentations.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very safe and healthy New Years Eve.

I'm wishing everyone all the best in 2009 (my new years eve photo). I look forward to viewing some amazing artwork in the upcoming year. So buckle down folks and lets see some truly ambitious pieces. I'm hoping many of you will venture well outside your comfort limits of sigs and attempt some large scale, full multi item pictures. Lets all challenge ourselves to become very artistic.

ciao

Have to love my hairdresser, she is a wonder at covering the gray hair :lol::lol:

Doing that in PDN would've been a cakewalk. :roll:

Seriously, though, great photo. :D

I'm loving what you did with frames, looks very fitting for New Year's.

(did it involve Crystallize, by any chance? :wink: )

Oh Kemaru its great, you actually are coming along real well in PDN. you were able to look at something and recognize what effect would achieve that look.

yes it was Crystallize. several layers of a white frame different crystallize settings and several gassiaun blured of the same setting.

(My grandkids call this my Mrs. Clause outfit :lol: I wonder why?)

anyone recognize the red cardinal I drew from my deviant art pages? here is the framed version hubby and kids gave me this year. The stockings are empty. didn't receive more than a lump of coal. just kidding, actally there was awonderful set of butterfly 14k gold earings were way down in the toe. it was a great Christmas, I received a new set of 48 prisma color artists pencils, some works sketch pads and a couple of great art books.

Your photo is worth a thousand words definitely. You have PDN on here, your deviantArt image, and your original photo. I love your creativity! Good luck in this new year. Happy New Year!!!

Thanks Helen, if you look closely I also made those ceramic angels on the tree many many moons ago. hand carved mold ( had lots of help from the teacher) and poured slip and then fired and painted and then refired similar to raku work. They are very lovely and don't show up near as beautiful in pictures. You don't get the luminousity and tranlucents sparkle in the picture .

What kind of art books did you receive?

one was masterful color by arlene Steinberg. Real advanced for my skills but still alovely hardcover book with many tips and exercises in colored pencil drawing/painting. Hopefully I'll master some of these things in the coming year. At least that's the goal. :wink:

and another was Readers digest learn as you go guide Sketching school. Its a much looser sketching style, I'm not sure I like that style but there are a few things I want to try out using ink and pen in combination with water color pencils. I think there are several things I'm going to attempt to translate over into my PDN style.

There is another one upstairs at the moment...so not sure of the exact name, its by Lee Hammond about portraits in colored pencil. This one I beleive is my favourite of the three, its easier to understand and not so advanced as the one by Arlene Steinberg.

All in All they are really good books... my art section of my home library is growing by leaps and bounds.

thanks Kemaru, do you mean "Renew" ?

That's some ideas for my next tut, just have to figure out a simplfied version (less than 100 steps :lol::lol: ) the tut won't be exactly like that picture but will incorporate some of the ideas and textures.

I'm hungry :!:

updated per comments below and top next page

darkened left edge of pear, waxed the grapes, added more highlight on pear, fixed the stem a bit.

peargrapesontablewithandbackground.png

that stem still wasn't correct

here I pixel painted it in better subtle but definetly more realistic

peargrapesontablewithbackgroundfixe.png

comments below caused me to add stem for grapes and some leaves. darkend the shadows at the base of the grapes to anchor them to the table better.

sorry I wanted a strawberry in this picture as well here is the first awful attempt. Yikes it needs work LOL!

anchoredgrapeswithdarkershadows.png

well I perfected the strawberry its not 100% but I think darn close.

so this is the final version. Finished as far as I'm taking this.

conclusion. it is possible to do very real looking paintings in this program.

100% paint.net I did not use a single outside render or even one of my own hand drawings scanned.

as shown on my Deviant art gallery

cropped and even more defined shadows
