Large Matt/Becker graphics - athene

Large Matt/Becker graphics


I've been experimenting with GIMP, trying out a few light and texture effects, and came up with a couple of large Matt/Becker graphics. I know they're both entirely the wrong size and shape to be wallpapers, but if anyone wants to snag them they're both free to a good home.

Also, if the first one looks familiar, it's because it's the large version of an icon I posted recently. Most of the effects were, unfortunately, lost when it was scaled down to icon size, so I've posted the full size version here, because it works much better than the icon, I think.

Oooh, these are very nice!!!

I would love a blow by blow account sometime of how you got the effects in these.

We definitely need another GIMP Con soon!

I was actually making the second one at the meetup while we were all sitting around the table. You were so busy with lsellersfic and basched you probably didn't get chance to see it.

If you want I can send you the GIMP files with all the layers, so you can see what went into them. Or else remind me the next time we have a meetup.

really pretty. I'd love to know how you got the effects too.

thanks. To be honest, I was mostly experimenting. Whether I'd be able to recreate the same effects a second time is another matter!

Lovely graphics. The effects on the second one are cool, but I think I like the first one best.

I need to learn how to do neat stuff like this with GIMP.

thanks. I am rather fond of the first one, but I think it looks a lot better as a full size picture rather than an icon.

GIMP is fun! But it does eat your time!

LOOK AT THE PRETTIES!!

Oh lass they're gorgeous and you managed to get rid of the pink on the second one! It's lovely to see that finally finished and looking manly but so damned sexy!

They're beautiful! Me loves and me has snagged! Yay!

*squeee*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 06:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee! Glad you like them both. Yes, I finally managed to get rid of the pink, thank goodness! But there are still little hints of purple, which is good.

These are absolutely beautiful. I'm jealous of your newfound GIMP skills!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 06:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
*blushes* Considering how much I've learned from the two of you, it's largely down to you and lsellersfic that I've got anywhere at all with it. *hugs*

Oooh, very pretty. I think they're both great but I really like that second one :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 06:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I spent *hours* on the second one, especially when the lighting effect ended up being very pink! I ended up having to introduce a second, completely different, light effect layer to get rid of it in the end.

Melt me why don't you.....

hee! Oops! Glad you liked them.

thanks!

These are fabulous! I was wondering how that second one had turned out after seeing the work in progress at the meetup- it looks great.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 07:29 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I finally managed to get rid of the excessive pink streak in the second one, and once I'd sorted that out it was fine!

Ooh, these are very pretty! I'm very impressed! :)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 07:31 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. GIMP is eating my time, but it is rather fun!

Ooh, the second one is intense!

Great colours.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 07:33 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I played with the colours on the second one for ages before it finally looked right. For a long time there was a huge bright pink streak which was most unmanly for the boys!

Great effects and lovely boys.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 07:34 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. Matt and Becker just seem to be so easy to play with for graphics and icons!

Nice textures and effects in both of them. I specially like the look of n.1, I think they look very cool there ^_^
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: September 20th, 2012 07:35 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks. I am rather fond of that 'old photo' sort of look. I suspect I'll be playing with that effect again in future - if I can remember how to do it!
