Tiger Wings by barbieq25 Tiger Wings by barbieq25
New image in a similar vein as the Sunday one with the layers staggered. Hubby gave me advice on the shadows which very much frustrated me since I am hopeless at these things. I am very much indebted to him.

Created with PDN.

I am blown away with what I see in this piece. I am totally in love with the background more than the jewel. It looks good and like a stone cut out. Wow!

Those shadows indeed look like they were complicated to get right! It turned out wonderfully.

In a way a lot of your art reminds me of jewelry. This would make an awesome pendant.

It frustrated me since I just could not "get" what my husband was trying hard to explain to me about angles, reflection & refraction & all that math stuff. Then I had to work out how to achieve the look in the program. I learnt a lot along the way I think.

Yes, it would make a great pendant or brooch even. With your jewellery making skills, it should be doable.

aye, or something similar. I'll have to challenge myself.

I have trouble with lighting too, while drawing. I can never remember where the light source is supposed to be, nor how that translates to shadows.

Yep, it's all about angles & maths. Yukky!

The title caught my attention for some reason and when I looked at it, it was jaw-dropping. Absolutely fabulous!

Helen, the original name was Tiger Tuesday. I was a bit grumpy & worried about PDN crashing on me again so I was a bit hesitant after the Sunday image. After completing it I felt so much better & decided to rename it to something more gentle.

I am pleased you like it :hug:

Very nice. I like the BG texture, the overall shape and the colors blend well. Excellent looking jewel. You've captured the feel of the "tiger eye" jewel. Bravo :clap:

Thank you s much for your comment. BG tiles are the jewel radial blur deluxe (0 for steps & not sure what the amount of blur was) & cut out . I used the jewel again & radial blur & then zoom blur & colour flip, for the reddish background.

I am pleased that you like it. Your comments mean a lot to me.

My pleasure. You did a great job with this one. Wished I'd thought of the "tiger eye" pattern but you beat me to it. Oh well... congratulations.

You can still do a tigers eye. Your images are wonderful & it would be interesting to see your take on it. You can never have too many jewels :)

I guess that why many of us post up WIPs on Fans. Hubby doesn't usually offer advice or assistance & gives minimal comments or advice when asked directly. He believes the art stuff is my personal journey & he doesn't want to interfere. I was surprised he spent so much time with me on this one.

Thanks for your lovely comments :hug:
