    I have no personal agression. You do. This is about the third thread where you've acted like this in regards to me. Only thing I can think of is that you somehow are disgruntled for me catching you. Oh well I guess I"m the dick for you ripping my graphics without even trying to contact me. <sigh>

    Maybe you should just move on and not post about this again..cause each time you do..your folly is mentioned yet again.

    Ok, so then perhaps someone can get back to my original reason for this long drawn out post. I really like your graphical touch Shane, I was just kinda looking for some ps direction in your style. I've been toying around trying to achieve that soft and eliquent look so any pointers would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bufffy

    Well..the image in question was put out on a cd by a company from Dayton, Ohio called "Perfect Vision Graphics". They put out stock CDs of imagery in the early 90s and also ran a BBS where they dispersed their graphics. In 1994 that CD was sold for $49 and had 2000 nature images on it. There were 2 CDs to be exact. Volume I and Volume II of the Perfect Vision Graphics collection. About 1997-1998 the company merged with a web design company in Ohio and they stopped selling cds.

    http://web.archive.org/web/199806300...ww.perfect.com

    Some of the imagery from those CD is still floating around the net. I've tracked down 3 images in my hunt to contact them a couple of months ago. Basically..i've searched all over the net.. I've called any number they ever had. I've done 411 searches for the names of the 2 owners of the company (Robin & Richard Reston). I've e-mailed everyone that was ever mentioned in association with PVG and have come up with absolutely NOTHING. I think its pretty obvious I did my research on this otherwise I wouldn't have even bothered to use that beautiful image.

    Therefore..since I could no longer purchase their CD (which I would have quickly done) the best I can do is give them credit on the site where the picture was used. I mean I even did searches in every major stock photo cd library to see if someone had acquired the rights to their images.

    No-Tec..i wasn't really trying to slag you..but you really seem to have a chip on your shoulder as a result of "the incident". Then you over-reacted at the simple poke of my finger. Kinda like Jello.

    As far as my PS techniques go..well crap..i've got no clue. I'm self taught, and I just sort of eyeball things. I dont have some mysterious process. With the 2 genesis scenes currently up.. I start with a picture. I then go and create or fabricate new things in the picture adding to it. I create all of the version of the Stop lights for example. Not based upon pictures from that night..but I create them by hand and add them to the scene. In the case of the harbor..the entire port was lit up.. so I created a version where it was dark. In both cases about 25% of the scene was manufactured simply by playing aroun din Photoshop.

    In the case of the 2A wallpapers I did everything from a couple of images I PURCHASED from a stock photography resource.

    And I play with them until they look right. Here are some examples of what the pods started as..and ended as. Pretty fun stuff

    BIG 2A project I'm finishing up this weekend.. hopefully after this I will have time to do more art related projects rather than websites.

    no i actually completely forgot about what happened a while back pxlrngr. But I don't feel its's right to bring it up here and slam me in front of everyone when you are just as guilty as me. no matter the cercumstances, without written conscent it's illigal. i hardly call that a poke when you bring up personal issues with me in the forums just to make a jab and make me look like the lesser.

    i had no hard feelings with you whatsoever. i forgot about you and went on my merry way. i wasnt accusing you of anything b4 you jumped on me. I was just wondering what was up b/c that kid brought up a good point.
    maybe.

    Just let it go, people. Yes, everyone does make mistakes. Do we really need to keep dragging up the subject?

    And u do all this in Ps?, no 3D soft whatsoever? man u got some illustarating skills, do u actually illustrate them before u use Ps? (on paper) if not have u tried it? i think u would come up with something good.

    Phreakdevil, I can come close to gauranteeing you that he doesn't do it all in photoshop, he only used it to combine and compose the final image however I may be wrong. I imagine he would use 3DMax or something similar to make the 3d elements (hoverships) and render them, before importing the rendered image into photoshop and adding the background, typogrpahy etc. Just a question to PixelRanger... do you render the images and then colour them seperately? For example pod3.jpg and pod4.jpg are the same except the later is coloured and has the thrusters "on".

    Woah!

    Shane is cool with the picture No-tek. I have used it myself too. As a matter of fact that dude Paul from the old photo studio is a cool guy. Shane also did everything legal according to the digital Millenium Act in the situation of a picure that is no longer an asset.
