Oops forgot a step

There is some granular "galaxy" stuff in that background that I forgot to talk about. I forgot how I did this (waaay back in April) and had to look it up. It's a wee bit involved, but here is the tutorial I used:

Sorry about that. :-)

Okay, this one's legal

No borrowed layers. I rendered the planet with the Land script and handpainted clouds over the land layer rendered as a sphere. I also tweaked the lighting, yada, yada, yada.

Here's a link to a larger (40Kb) version: http://www.geocities.com/mark9117/ph...planet_big.jpg

How's that?

Mark,

Both are very well done. You've created a very nice universe and did an excellent job mapping images to objects! I especially like the bright colors on the planet in the second version. Kudos for submitting a second version without any borrowed layers.

Talking From Scratch.. Cross my Heart

Hi Paul,

Im just about a month old on here..
Read this thread about designing from scratch.

Here's some stuff I've done. Its all basically furniture... but every one of them was made from scratch.

http://www.facetsindia.com/Gallery/gallery.html

I designed them on AutoCAD and then rendered them on 3D Studio Max.

Or did this thread mean PhotoShop ONLY??

sukku,

Very nice work! By the way, this thread is open to all types of software and not just Photoshop.

So do you build the pieces too or just create 3D models? You have crafted some lovely virtual furniture pieces. I especially like the ones that are more of a scene, like the glass table with the tile floor below showing the shadows and reflections.

Great work!

~T

A lighthearted experiment

Creating something from nothing is not my forte; but I've had so much fun with this little experiment, I thought I'd try and post it.

Have fun all. And remember to "Make A Joyful Noise".

Talking Vanishing Points

Paul, thank u for going thru those images in my last post... and yes I do build the pieces I've designed. As you can see most cases I ignore the overall scene as I concentrate more on the piece I'm building.
Im still an amateur at this stuff and do it more of like a hobby than anything else, software design & programming being my line of work.
Its amazing what software these days can do for you, with so little effort too.
I also have posted a pic (link below) on here
http://www.retouchpro.com/challenges...cat/500/page/1

A manipulation challenge, I drew in the walls in CorelDraw and imported them into Photopaint. Basically did that to understand the concept of vanishing points. By extending guidelines from the visual planes i could arrive at the two basic vanishing points in the pic. From there on it was a piece of cake to draw in the missing parts, like the roof for example. It was very satisfying to watch the pieces fall in place just by fitting in the bits and pieces according to the vanishing points.

Accepted the walls do look faked, but you will however notice the visual perspective in the picture is perfection itself, thanks to vanishing points :d

Would you suggest I post a pic with the guidelines in place to show how they worked for me in that challenge??

Earlier today Doug Colwell pointed out how the cobbles stones in the horizontal in this pic (link below) should have been evenly sized.

http://www.retouchpro.com/challenges...cat/500/page/1

I see his point now. ( vanishing points again!! :d ) ... Unfortunately I wasnt aware of the concept when I worked on that pic.

I now believe the concept of vanishing points is very vital, not only to anyone trying to create objects from scratch, but even for restorations like these. It sure is worth exploring.

Hi All

I know that this forum is a little old now, but I thought I’d
post this image.

I’ve started dabbling in portraits, totally painted in photoshop from scratch.

OK - this wasn’t done from memory and she didn’t sit for me. (I had to use a photo as my model)

It doesn’t look much like the original, but it’s getting there !!

It was all done using the paintbrush, burn, dodge, blur and smudge tools.

Oh …. and a fair bit of swearing.

--------------------

I've just seen the "NO Photo's" part of this forum!!! Ooooops (sorry Doug)

Cool

Shalford, for a from-scratch-portrait u've done a fantastic job. I'm guessing u use a tablet, (a luxury i cannot afford as yet) : and painting with the mouse isnt easy

Now, modern art!!! that is a mouse job so long as u can explain some hidden meaning into the mass of squiggles and blotches

Or mebbe just drag a squiggly line on a clean sheet and call it 'LifeLine'
