  • Thanks Alan, keep the NY pics coming, I've got a few very London pics knocking around, I don't know whether they would be better off in the architecture and design thread though let's see.

  • Cheers people - just wanted it to be the same thread but different!

    After all,it'll be us looking at it and us making it, like having a private gallery.

    This is made from a squillion layers in GIMP (a freeware Photoshop) . Like the view on that NY scene , tips of scrapers .




    Sartori, what do you mean by squillion layers? I used to use GIMP. Became too cumbersome over the years. Now there are much better alternatives.
    Alan said:

    I'm genuinely curious: what were you trying to achieve by using multiple layers?



    Each part of the of the composite had a vastly different texture and colour pallette , I`m sure there were quicker/expensive ways of marrying them up but I had separate layers for each one to adjust them and then adjust each layers opacity to better blend them together . I found that with each new filter I put on to give the final effect I wished , each layer took to it differently and each separate part of the picture needed adjustment again . 

    The original died in a hard drive crash , I only have the finished pic and one other (below) from making it . The glow filter I had applied to this (I`m guesstimating here) made each person totally different in their lighting , the cape on the mans shoulder no longer fits there , so each level had their gamma levels adjusted as I recall to blend in with each other . I wanted her face/cheekbones to stand out of the gloom but here she looks like she`s swallowed a 1000w lightbulb . This was just a learning exercise .

  • A cover I made for the Electric Proms 2008 dvd . And yes , Helikaon is me as well . You can see the picture top right that I posted in the Sexy Women thread , its obviously been tweaked still further here . Made in GIMP as well , I recall uploading the source GIMP files with layers to the GMB at the time (?) .

  • Synergist

    Like strings upon a puppet
    Or threads within a web
    They pull together up it
    But, synthesize instead
    Like leaves and branches on a tree give stunning strength to fit
    The synthesis, like magic born, when you lean intuit
    When all the threads align
    And synergies combine
    There never will be end to it
    You're learning of the intuit

  • Very proud to reveal some fan art I did for the Tales of the City series which I sent to Armistead Maupin on Facebook yesterday, and got 1300 likes! He's one of my favourite authors and I love those books (and the tv series) with a passion.
