Now with the new forum is great chance for newbies like me to see your older work too. Is easier for me to comment jewels and things being a girl after all and you do a lot of space and techie things but just wanted to say that you do really awesome things with paint.net .
Sometime the best art comes from being unexpected. I think this is what's reflect in this piece. Also it is so calming, the blue and purple color gives the soothing feel, and the water paper in the background serves as a visual anchor point while the white surface gives the feel of a glass surface. It is truly balanced.
Thanks Leif,Chris,Helen,Oma and Lance for your lovely comments. Much appreciated.
Leif, you know I hadn`t even noticed the mirrored/random combo. I just added the background that I felt looked the best. It`s funny how other people see things in your images that you yourself miss. Thanks for pointing that out.
Chris it`s nice to know you like the realistic stuff. I think getting something looking realistic is a nice challenge. Some come out better than others of course.
Helen if I could make it , it would be yours.
Oma , I never knew that you collected them. It`s amazing the amount shapes and sizes they come in. Have you got many?
Lance it`s funny how some images seem to draw themselves rather than you drawing the image. The background is actually a marble one I made with some subtle adjustments to the colour with the white gradient partially hiding the bottom part to make it look as if it was reflecting the top. I thought it looked more like clouds personally but that`s the beauty of art I guess - we each see different things in the same image. .
Oh by the way - I hope you like my new `New Images' button I added at the top. Best glass text I have made so far and it`s in a tiny button!
Dang! FOrgot to comment on the button - very cool! I've always loved the way you organise your gallery & I still have the title bars I did ages ago. Must re-vamp my gallery & try out the tutes. I'd forgotten about some of them.
