Sallyanne, that is great! What font is that??

Racer-x, I'm loving the diamond plate!

Hi Mr. Racer.

Please drop some hints of doing this effect which is wonderful.
1. It would have been more natural if scrapped metal fragments were in the picture.
2. Secondly, you drew three claws and then applied mirror effect to them so they are pointing in opposite directions. Infact claws are like just like finger nails when curved they all point to some common centre and meet to that point.
3. Thirdly claws are not six.
4. In jungle big cats scratch the bark of the trees while humans put them behind bars.

I hope these suggestions would make it more natural.

Thanks.

hi sallyanne,
Your marble lettering is excellent.
It also highlights an inherent problem with patterns.
It looks just like marble but also reveals the recurring nature of Gimp patterns.

Has anyone worked-out how to 'randomize' patterns used in Gimp to look less like a pattern?

I have to look because I remember seeing a random marble texture tutorial somewhere.

Firstly this is a fantasy image and in no way is meant to mimic reality. Earth creatures don't have six claws, but who said it was an Earth creature?

Anyway, here is the claw marks image I used for this. Just select the black and follow this tut more or less.

I found Mathmap can be used to mix-up the repetition in a marble pattern.

Image

Make the pink marble with bucket-fill> duplicate layer> make new layer active.
Filters> Generic> Mathmap> Mathmap> Filters> Map> BPPannini> adjust user values.
Quite a few of the Mathmap filters work such as Squeezed Pannini, Droste9, Galactic twist and Distorts> Absolute twister.
When happy,
Adjust opacity of layers > merge down > G'MIC 'Freaky Details' and then filters > Light & Shadow > lighting effects.

Final thought. Monumental stonemasons who engrave headstones use computer software for the engraving.
