    How's everyone doing? :)

    Well this is a project I started on Paint Shop Pro a long while ago. Recently finished, which took me at least 2 months. Just about a week ago, I went back and added a few more things to it. But because I added a few chrome balls, it took me an extra week to redeform the the ripple layer after the ball was merged and duplicated.

    As always, opinions, criiques, and. suggestions are welcome :)

    I can not fin the right words to express my feelings looking at that. Can that be made in to a picture under my name?

    Also, may I have your permission to use this as my desktop on my PC?

    Being that I was doing my studies college, it took longer. Still though, even I took my time, I don't think I'd finish earlier. I usually spent at least 1-4 hours each day on the image. On its initial days, the background was mainly a picture I took of a stairwell in mall. I used it started and swirled/warped it a bit. It was darkened/duplicated/ and set layers blending mode to hue, and then added a few gradients over the duplicated and set the gradient layers to color/overlay. And then masked a few parts of gradient, and finally it made about uh I can't count, but about 20-30 different selections of the original layer and placed and spread each selected/promoted around the canvas. Merged everything, duplicated the merge layer, and set atop the first gradient layer with blending options set to screen.

    Everything is then merged, copied again, and I used the ripple tool to get a watery/wavy effect on the duplicated layer. Now what killed most of was deforming this layer to get get out a perspective....and man I kept on trying and trying, and it just never looked right everytime I tried. And I kept deforming, messed up, deformed again, messed up, and long continuous cycle.

    You have permission Omar :) As for avatar use...the detail will be lost when it's shrunk. Cropping may help a bit, but most detail will still be lost.

    Outstanding work Meteor Drive.

    Do you plan to submit it to any of the well known digital art sites?

    No, I don't plan on submitting to those any longer. Deviant art lost a few of my work there out of nowhere. I wasn't pleased with that. Not to mention XPtheme, with there servers breaking everytime, lost 12 of my designs. I really don't want to bother zipping, and creating thumbnails, offering bmp and jpeg. It's just tiring.
