3d meets 2d
Nice intergration of 3d and 2d. Did you make the picture in the background? Very good tile, seeing as its your 3rd or 4th one.

Re: 3d meets 2d
Thank you soooo much for your encouraging words...I have to admit, I am very proud of this tile. I made the background using Adobe and a very good friend of mine showed me a little bit about Bryce4 to create the mountain and water effect!! I am a huge fan of your work myself and I hope that you keep contributing some of the most intriguing tiles on our newbie quilt!!

Re: 3d meets 2d
I have some advice for making realistic water: unless you're going for a "pool surround by walls" effect, like in The Truman Show, you should fade the water directly into the background, or you could draw a coastline overlapping the water. That's especially true when the water ends so close to the viewer, as it does in this case.

3d looks best (in my opinion, of course) when it meshes seamlessly with its surroundings.
Re: Re: 3d meets 2d
The title of this quilt is SURREAL...that's why I made this tile the way that I did...thanx for the advice though. the mountain and swirly water were created in Bryce4...then I used Adobe to create the sunset with the dark blue waves...the combination made a nice SURREAL effect in my eyes...but I will keep your advice in mind if I want to make a realistic 3d/2d pic!!LOL :-))

wee... you're the first one I see too recieve my coin (the yin-yang one)!! =) congrats!

I must say that this one looks good, but I'm personally not terribly fond of using bryce. It's just too easy IMO. I reserve my highest votes for the tiles created from scratch with sweat and blood without any filters or shortcuts.
Re: Re: Re: Re: 3d meets 2d
BTW:the sunset in the back is completely original made with blood and sweat in Adobe...this was only my third tile and my first attempt with Bryce--I see what you're saying though ;-) Cool coin!
