BFFT - no worries - the pic I sent you was not so good a quality for this...something in the ball-park (i.e. more like the pic but doesn't need to include it directly) with the new feature of Excalibur along with my chair on the lake...


Why does everyone go to Furry for artwork?

I happen to know he outsources nearly every request to a sweat shop in China.

Nike has nothing on Furry's operation.

I didn't want to let this out, but it had to be said.... sorry.


LOL, they don't.


RE: sweatshops....i employ domestic labor. Well, i purchase the indonesian kids and have them work on photoshop in my basement. I beleive in keeping jobs here in America!

I've typed several responses and deleted them in the name of decency.

Oh dear. You make it sound like I'm playing favorites here!

BFFT did a fabulous job on my last avi, and he was the only one to put up with my complicated "Avi Requirements List" last time... What's a girl to do?? Well, give him a LONGER Avi Requirements List, of course, and now I'm waiting with great excitement to see the end result... I'm just grateful someone is putting up with my complicated self!

Not my intention, my friend.

It's good to see you around.

Sounds like you had the better time anyway, and you can't go past a pub's atmosphere when it is filled with like-minded people all celebrating the same thing.


I'm more of a traditional travel nut when it comes to seeing places, so I always love to see basically local, home-grown pics that people post themselves. Sure, I could easily Google it or hit up Youtube, but it's not the same as that down-the-barrel perspective you get from someone's camera who is there.

I have travelled extensively and seen may things over the years, but I really do hate commercialism when it comes to landmarks and events, especially in my own country. I have never been to any of our theme parks even though they are only two hours or so away, they simply don't interest me as much as seeing something natural or unspoiled by man.

All good my brother, glad you had a better time anyways.

Of course I'm holding you to the Superbowl pics next year....

Did you add to your collections yet? As in brushes, textures, special
effects or color swatches? I'm still so new but the colors seem very limited, like there
isn't anything that is metallic, no gold, silver, copper, or bronze. I'm not someone that
can just mix & create those colors, but textures too.

I needed a break from the tutorials for a wee bit. Maybe I'll get back to them this
weekend. Loved the exposure tip from BFFT, it was quick...of course I will still need
to practice.

Cheers
Ektar

Ektar.. there is many ways to make metallic looks
First one is use blending modes of layers. with right click when cursor is above layer select blending options. There are some ready styles i just try different things out.
Another way it to render lights in filter menu, when getting metallic structure you need to edit texture channel settings blue/red/green or transparency active and white high... whatever works with current document best.


there is lot of layer styles free in internet which do nice metal effects, i personally like to keep my photoshop ascetic without lot of stuff .. but thats my nature lol
Without leaning too much on ready stuff you get the hand over things by learning..

I hope these helps
I will seek in internet for some styles for you

Color palette is not for metallic looks, metal comes from blending and other tricks.

20 metal styles
metal styles
more metal
etc etc

Not yet Ektar

But I think I'm ready to start playing with more colours and textures now.

I get the glow effect from

Layer>Layer style>outer glow using a yellow, set to 75% opacity... technique ...softer... with 5 pixels wide

On the writing I did for you I used Layer>Layer style> ticked drop shadow ..... inner glow...bevel and emboss... and outer glow set to 75% opacity and 5 pixels wide.

Blah.....blah.... blah.... .png

Just try different settings and different lights.. in that pic i used i was sitting on a ground of pompidou Paris, so i used it in a photograph. For text.. type your text and rasterize layer ( right click on text layer ) and a bit grain and maybe a color it a bit.. blur a little motion or gaussian, keep selection all the time if you want solid text effect and render lights.

its really easy after all

You can also use the preset styles to get an idea what each setting does. Just select what you like, or with an element you like, then alter it to see what makes it tick.

Did you survive the paper cut labyrinth BFFT ?

I'd still rather have my head wound than a paper cut any day of the week.

And thanks guys for being so supportive of us noobies to the team

Yeah. Dropped the envelopes in the mail about 2 hours ago. papercuts aren't too bad, until you squeeze lemons.

Wow Dollukka thank you so much for the HEAVY METAL! It will take forever
to get through all of that so I now have a PS file in which to place these & others.

When I was working on the King of Hearts I had thought about metal
due to the crown & armor...but forgot to ask you guys. Thank you for your time!
Dig the new clothes!

Cheers

I know where you're coming from bro

I was in the spray booth today, acetone has a habit of finding cuts you weren't aware of.

I'll have salt, pepper and lime on my salad please


Put it next to the chimichurri and lets get that assado slow cooking with a few drinks and a grooming session whilst we wait.

Thanks Cody & BFFT & any one else has helped me along...
I just LMAO while writing notes from you guys...reminded me
of Cody talking about writing a book & the ATS characters.
If some one read my bloody notes they would wonder who or
what is a Big Fat Furry Texan & Dollukka...they already (at least family)
know who Ektar is & Cody is normal at least in a name.


Cheers

i spent my time last night on this, and found a lady that looks fairly close to you. I may even try to place your eyes on her or something....we will see how it blends.

I have her and the chair positioned on the lake, with a dark/cloudy/mysterious backdrop. Tonight i am working late with the jefe. So nothing will really happen today. But there is an update for you.
