A wonderful piece!
Your shadings are...simply stunning!

And how comes I've missed this piece?
It's like the first one in your pictorium gallery...
I just don't get it!

this one was done just as the old pictorium was closing up. It was voted to the galleria from the old pictorium.

I've some old wips if you want to look at it.
remember this was from an older version. before smudge etc. so its all straight blur.

Love how you've done this in PdN, I use it a lot but my drawing skills just aren't up to par :D

The detail on the whale look very natural and I really like how you've added motion to the sea, well done :)

Gak! :omg: :faint:

You don't need a tablet, you're doing just fine with PDN.

yep don't need the tablet anymore. only thing I'd like is pressure sensitive. but since I don't have Vista it wouldn't do me any good to have the tablet. I'll invest in a few more art books.

friend just told me that the hospital book sale (bigggggggg city wide sale) is coming up and they usually have ooodles of art books donated. and I should be able to pick up some quality books real cheap. I'm heading to that next weekend. so will see what I can find.

hows your drawing coming along? any more of those floating islands? they might be what I attempt next. I really like the looks of the ones you've done so far.

thanks for taking the time to look at my picture . I really appreciate that.

I'm working on another one, 7hrs of work so far and I'm only about half done. The clouds are giving me trouble again. I'm tempted to do the clouds in PDN, but I realy want to paint them myself.

I'd love to see a floating Island done in PDN, if anyone can do it, you can! :D

Tablets work fine in XP, though PDN doesn't support the pressure sensitive part yet. I'm eagerly awaiting 4.0, I want brushes! Thats about the only thing PSE does better than PDN. I may try GIMP and see how its brush system works.

I've seen the brush plug, it's still pretty rough brushes but hey it's great not to wait until v4.0

:D nice work :D

not bad plugin. think the writer chomped off a big bite with this one. we will see how he manages to chew thru the comments and suggestions.

it has loads of issues but will do in the mean time until v4.xx comes along.

I'm making my own brushes for what I require. should be good for things like loads of leaves in tree etc. etc. and maybe those swirlies the little girls all like .

Wow! Seems like you have just about mastered every aspect of Paint.NET. The whale has incredible shading. Wanna share your tricks?
Reply
:iconomagrandmother:
omagrandmother Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2008
some is done like how I did the faces many blured layers. Once I had a pleasing texture I used 3d for cylinder form and then had to push, pull ,stretch, curve and squash using plugins.

lots of clone stamp for areas of shading from there. mainly to keep color blending and fix up little creases from plugin use.

there were cut and copy sections over and under fins etc. like in how you do interlocking rings.

many many layers and help from all my paint.net friends.

woah, that is one of the most amazing pieces I have ever seen done in paint.NET, actually, that is about the same quality as Ash's Tiger, that is really extraordinary.

And so detailed as well, glad to see you have created something so amazing

to be mentioned in ASH's class is a great compliment. although I don't think I'm even close to his ability. He is a great mentor, from day one in paint.net he has been someone I tried to follow and I can see my work improve by doing so.

I'm really happy with this picture. and to be truthful, the more plugins and distortion effects they come up with just adds to the possibilities of better pictures. so as better and newer plugin come on line the ability to improve increases.

many of the final adjustments were done with the stretching and pulling and pushing and bending type plugins. On paper I'd have just erased and reworked in paint.net that manipulation of solid form was time consuming but with better results.
