Winchester Paper Trail #5: Valentine Treats  
Once again, cunien pointed out that a significant date was upon us and surely needed celebrating, WPT style. Brain twin powers were at scary levels, and our combined efforts (second verse, same as the first: graphics and layout by cunien, words by hiyacynth) resulted in this bit of strippery goodness:

Ah, sorry, i should have thought. ::swings you back the other way::
:P

Can i be a pain and pick your brains for a second? Don't worry if you're too busy, or don't want to divulge stuff, but if you can...
Basically i'd love to know how you create your layouts. I did this: http://www.fangirls.me.uk/ for a friend a few months ago, but as you can see it's nowhere near as realistic and tactile as the layouts you are doing. How are you producing the imagery, and shadows? For example, you've got a shadow under the panties that varies in distance, and the fabric of the bed cover (or whatever) showing beneath it. And are you scanning objects, or taking photos?

Like i said, don't sweat it if you're too busy for explanations and such, was just very curious to learn some new skills and thought i'd ask. :P

Nono, mammoth reply very much appreciated! I think you're totally right about the shadows under the bullets and gun, and i'm doing some m&m's for a new graphic i am making, and will be applying the same thoughts... it led to a rather complex discussion between my dad and me tonight about the shape of bullets and their optimum shadow point! It's really helped, and i'm off to fiddle with things now.

I'm surprised to hear you do some of the shadowing by hand, i'm crap with freehand stuff. I even have Illustrator and a graphics tablet, but haven't had the time to use either to any great effect. Currently i'm just using Drop Shadow in Photoshop set to Global Light to keep me straight.

Think i might experiment with photographing some things too, scanning is eclipsing things rather and there might be no reason for that.

Thanks tons for the info and comments, it's great to talk over stuff like this with someone else experimenting too! :D
