Congratulations, oma!

You definitely deserve all of them. Especially the Big Bird award.

_____________________

I love all your work, especially the index page banner. Great job with the placement and the concept!

Was the man in Evil in the Night inspired by Indiana Jones?

thank you Kemaru, the big bird award to me is the best one of all the awards. I'm glad you liked my index banner, I agonized over which pictures to show, I wanted a real variety, and think I acheived that. By the way all of those were done by moi! I think the only ones I used outside source was the polar bear, (I hand drew that) and the scenery of the lake with trees (I took that picture myself) and played with the pastel plugin.

The man in Evil in the night came from this question on the forum. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=22158&hilit=drew+struzan

I still think of it as one of my most challenging pieces. I think I really learned on the fly on this one.

ciao OMA

thanks Goonfella you might be interested in the new section I just added to my index on page 1

Where I raid my trash bin. some pretty wicked (bad, terrible) images. My horrible mistakes. :lol: Just started it with one image so far. But it should prove to be a real eyeopener for some.

OMA has to work at this the same as everyone else ..... and not all of her pictures are for public consumption. :lol::lol:

Amazing new abstract piece,Ireally like the lighing and colours of it, they really give it a sense of atmosphere, to me at least, which is always very impotant in pictures. Yet again you've shown everyone that you're one of the best abstract artists on the forum. Can't wait for more. :)

And I quite like the idea of a "blooper real" kind of section. Kinda funny looking creature there. :P

quick someone bring the smelling salts. LFC4EVER just got a case of the vapours. :lol:

@Storm.shadow thanks that is very nice of you to say that. All I can tell you is it takes Practice, Practice, and more practice. Don't get discouraged if what you make doesn't always turn out how you wanted it to. That's why I put the "Oma's Trash bucket section in my first post (at the bottom). Not every piece I make looks great, some are way better than others, but some that don't look so hot taught me more.

come back any time. ask what ever you wish about the pictures. If I remember what I did or even roughly what I've done to make a certain thing I'll share.

ciao

I know practice makes perfect. That was my old, once upon a time, motto. I saw your trash bin and it got me laughing actually. Looks like the dog got cooked in the microwave or something.

"she makes my heart sing"

EDIT I guess I should put in the inspiration. I was listening to a J Hendrix tune "Wild thing, you make my heart sing" and as usual in my off tone voice I was singing at the top of my lungs the WRONG words !

thanks I really need some musical notes added but I'm not musically inclined so need someone to help me. . If I did it the notes I'd probably string together might be all discordinate. well ..... it would sound like cats with their tails in a wringer, if truth were told. I'm so totally tone deaf. :lol: .

I play by ear and I can only play by notes if I write every single note out and practice for about a month. You can just find a song you would like and copy some of the notes and place it in your image. I just looked at your piece one more time and it's even more beautiful. Nice job, I must say! :P

'Vapours' is breath-taking but 'She Makes My heart Sing' was literally WOW out loud :shock:

Agreed.

I promoted it to the galleria. (I'll move it to PDN hosting in a couple of days since I can't do that from here.)

Deservedly so
