    Gary really gives it all away this month. Not only do you get a dozen free bump maps (whatever they are) , but they also seamlessly tile, and if that weren’t enough, Gary has two written tutorials for using the bump maps on the Giveaway page. Yup, you struck gold this month. March comes in like a casino, and goes out like a texture. Read more... then post your bumped up artwork in this thread.

    Perhaps, some people want to go and try them out before commenting. Thank you for the Tutorials and the freebies Gary.

    @Keith,

    I was kidding to get a reaction, and fortunately, I got not one, but two. Insecure content creators do this kind of stuff.

    @stygg— To the best of my knowledge, I did not include any bump maps for the woman. I'll check again.

    Here's a question.

    Why is one of the tiles affecting the other two?

    That's just a billboard for the Giveaway, Paul. I played with opacity on the top tile, and did a score of other things to build a plate, silverware, and so on.

    It's called "trying to get attention", not intended to be deceptive in any way (as "advertising" often is)...if you do download the tiles and place one over the other, and give it something in the neighborhood of 40% transparency, you will indeed see what I've depicted.

    But what you copied is just part of this month's "headers", and no silverware or food stuffs are included in the tutorials.

    Gary I like the composition, nice work, but see-through tiles are a little odd!

    I love the tray.

    The solid 22ct cutlery modelled on those of the Bouton household is a special touch!

    @Paul—

    Actually, most of the cutlery in the Bouton household is stolen from a famous Scottish restaurant, and is solid 22ct polystyrene. We might even have a spork or two in the Den, just to the right of the Aviary and Study.

    Hi Hélène! Hélène, you can help save a tree or two by just putting a bookmark in the tutorials, or by copying the plain text.

    Environmentally yours,

    Gary
