No problem CJ.

I've posted my attempt at your Poker tut from the PDN forum.

Hope it comes up to scratch!!

1. Create 3 layers
2. Fill each layer with clouds (B&W, Default settings)
3. Effects > Blurs > Splinter: Splinters 8, Rotation 45, Distance 200, Mode Darken (repeat on each layer)
4. In Layer Properties, adjust opacity of layers 2 & 3 to 128
5. Flatten. Adjustments > Curves: RGB and adjust to your chosen colour
6. Layers > Rotate Zoom: Angle 0, Twist 90, Radius 60. Zoom 1.5, X-Pan 0, Y-Pan -0.450
7. Create a new layer. Gradient tool, drag white from bottom to black at top - Blend Mode Multiply

the tutorial you made for this is incredibly fun! I'm a huge poker fan, and the ability to create my own chips/cards is great! I would have never thought of this... thanks!

Glad you enjoyed this piece, and the Paint.NET tutorial. I look forward to you posting your results either here, in deviantART, or in the forum Tutorial/Pictorium.

Excellent work, very clean render with nice light!

Thanks, Tom. Unfortunately it doesn't quite have the photo-realism you get if you create scenes with the likes of C4D, but I think it demonstrates that you can produce powerful 3D art with a 'free' graphics program like Paint.NET.
