Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

Don't do it Palms, those instructions are as clear as mud. :-)) I went astray about half way through. I really like the example results though, so may give it another try later.

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

This is a good as i could come up with. It seems reading the tutorial the he left out some steps to force you to purchase the pdf file. So i fudged it from what i could read and see in the images that he had available. As MiningArt said this tutorial is clear as mud.

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

Here's another attempt from me. Still not happy and its still not Christmassy!
It's supposed to be a work in progress with the drawing/painting not quite finished on the lower part of the card. Supposed to be...
I think I may have to give up on this until my skills are a little more advanced.
Merry Christmas everyone!

As a new comer here I just wanted to comment that this looks like a very cool process and one I will need to try.

Thanks for the link

Doug

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

Hi all
Butlermike, your second attempt works better than your first.
I think the big thing here is to creat depth as well as pespective. The second card works better because the light area in the front of the bottom piece moves towards the viewer (always will, as it is light), and the area near the fold is darke, so moves away.
The background in the source image (tutorial) is also much darker, giving the necessary depth, and the cloud that is escaping form the card is very subtle, not as obviously out-of-bounds-like as your attempt.

Re: Unusual christmas card 3d

I think you're right about the perspective. i was trying to make the card with a photorealistic idea in mind whereas the tutorial looks like its been 'created'. One day when my PS skills are more adept I shall try this again and to the letter of the tutorial![/I]
