oma, i absolutely LOVE the pineapple so far. its awesome the background is great, the leaves are good, yeah the skin needs a bit o' work, but its all way better than what i could do! nice job!

those leaves should be good I chopped those from the actual picture inspiration piece.! I'm going to draw my own before this is considered finished. :lol::lol: I'm still in the design stage on this one. jury is out on if this piece makes it beyond the trash. :lol:

i noticed about the second one. i meant the first one. lol.

Absolutely loving the texture of those pineapple leaves oma. Brilliant stuff.

*agrees* pineapple leaves are going brilliantly. can wait to see the end. you should make a tut on it when you're finished (or at least drop me how u did it)

It looks like you're getting a little pressured, Oma. But all I've got to say your pineapple is an amazing piece and your progress is just a motivation piece itself. 8)

:lol: no pressure as you can see I seldom write tuts. If I get a chance and can simplify some of my work you all will get the scooted down version.... if not "c'est la vie".

Since I write so few tuts it is why I put up work in progress shots. You can perhaps recognize some of the steps as I go along and see the actual changes those things make within a picture. Then try them within your own works.

I'll always try to answere all the questions I get asked, but sometimes I just don't remember what I've done. I push, pull and flip effects so quickly and so often within a picture, add that I work on two or three pdn's at the same time, copying from one into another then back again it is sometimes next to impossible to explain.

I love the work in progress shots :) The pineapple looks like it's coming on really well. I look forward to seeing the final image :)

My favourite of yours though, is your signature. It's beautiful!

thank you kelly, I hope you can see some of the steps in those work in progress shots. how my pictures morph and twist and turn.

I did some final steps on this pineapple (above) I still might redo a bit of the yellow and red coloration on the pineapple skin. I'm not sure as I'm quickly loosing interest in this one, but I don't like to leave it partially done. :wink: :wink: Maybe I'll go have myself a wee break, maybe a glass of nice red wine put my feet up and think about it.

ciao :lol:

I think it looks good. :)

:lol: Thanks helen...

I finally finished this drawing. I don't often get so antsy to finish a picture, but this one was making me jumpy. I like to usually savour the process and draw it out. But I am very pleased, with the final results. There are some areas I need further drawing practise on, such as forshortening leaves. The bottom ones need to have a more come towards you feel. So I've things to study and work on. That's how I judge if its a good picture or not, it leaves me room to grow as an artist, and I know what to work on...so its a real good picture in my opinion, even if it did make me antsy. :lol:

thanks topezia I finally broke down and wrote a decent tut. but see they've moved things around on the tut section. :roll: wouldn't you know it. now not only am I old but my tuts in the Legacy section. :roll: i guess I better get my head around writing another tut. wonder what would be a good one. :lol:

@Oma: I really love your stuff. It's absolutely beautiful. Maybe it's because I'm a grandpa. I'll be visiting your galleries often.

well thanks so much, you are welcome to come to my gallery any time I'll even let you in free. :lol: Actually some of my older works are over on DA and the link is under my sig.

Its nice to see another grandparent here. Its a great place to keep the mind sharp, these young ones certainly keep one on their toes.

ciao all

thanks for coming by my gallery.

That is so cute, Oma! I have two projects that I'm working on that are somewhat like yours. I'm glad they're different, though.

I like how the image is so neat and bright. Oh and the smoke coming out is just so adorable. Very well thought out. Love it. Just simply love it!

thanks you Helen and Topezia.

I'm on an early morning roll. Finished up the poster type art I'd been working on.

100% Paint.Net 100% Feel good vibes from this one.

Make sure you read the title folks.

"Living in a prism"

not Prison!

Its an abstract, meant to make you think, wonder, ponder. What would it be like to live inside a prism?

Would you see wild colors? light bouncing off walls? your reflection multiple times? Its a piece to make you contemplate the total unknown.

comments please!

LOL, Oma. At first I thought it said prison. But then I thought to myself, If living in a prison was only that pretty. How'd you do that? The image looks like fractals, which I have been wondering how to do forever. Any hints? :wink:

no fractals at all. totally paint.net nothing brought in from outside this program. I started with a blank canvas. You will see the about 1/2 way picture in the abstract portion of our pictorium.

as to how to make it.

Hint: I'm known for using polar inversion.

Another Hint: and there are multiple layers and layers and blend modes.

Yet another Hint: tiles and semi transparent layers, and seamless texture.

Excellent job oma on "Living in a prism". It really does look like you're inside a prism with the spectrum of colours. You really must make a tut on how to make an abstract, i'm sure it'd teach everyone a lot - especially about using polar inversion.
