Thanks! I'm starting, and the practice is the best way to learn. That's what I've done:

Hello, I'm new to the site and to paint.net and this tut was great. Thanks for taking the time to do this, I haven't been able to sleep since I started learning this program.
Here's my go at it.

That is a nice trick

You get a better result with Distort/Twist if you ran Distort/Sin Waves before. Otherwise, the extremities of the swirl remain “flat”, especially with a low distortion. But I’d just like to mention that you can work around if you do not have the Sine Waves plugin.

The solution is to add a new layer on top and make a radial gradient with primary color fully transparent and the secondary colour black. This layer will hide the extremities of the swirl as shown below (left without sin wave and without mask; right without sin wave but with the mask).

With a higher distortion (like the galaxy) this default does not show and the sin wave pre-processing is not necessary.

I love this tut! Not for what it is; but rather for the doors that it opens!
