  1. Take a screenshot of a window like the ones you see on the picture, then paste :Paste: them into Paint.NET. Duplicate the layer and go to the first layer ("Background"). Go to Layer -> Mirror vertical :Vertical: Go back to your duplicated layer (The one which isn't mirrored vertically) Open Rotate/Zoom (Ctrl+Shift+Z) and play around with the globe in upper left corner till it looks the way you want it. Press OK. Go to your vertical mirrored layer and open Rotate/Zoom and press OK. Now Use the gradient tool and make sure that the alpha channel option :AlphaChannel: is set. Now make a gradient from the start of your vertical mirrored window and to about the half way down. Image -> Flatten and you have your final result
  2. Talking about colors, I didn't use the HEX Decimals you were using, since I wanted something more home-made. So what I did was that I took the colors you are mentioning and then I am finding a color close enough to it instead. But in the end the colors began to look boring, especially because I somehow didn't end up with thoose "light-stripes" from the gradient bars, like you. PM me when your back from holidays and let's go thru it all. It would be great to learn how to do this correctly

  7. Here is my try. I didn't find this tutorial easy at all, actually I was quite depressed after trying the 4th time with no succes. So I decided to do some of the stuff in my own way. I fixed the awful colors I ended up with using layer experimenting and then I did the moving manually because I had problems with the align. As some extra stuff I added some shadows to improve the realisticness. That's what I ended up with: Thanks for this great tutorial, Oma. It also helped me in a lot of other ways. Well, I guess I just need a little more practice before I some day can make a branch with leaves with no problems.

  12. Thanks Adam I used your method in my blend of 7-8 different ways to make a grass texture and I got this result: The reason to that the grass texture is so bright is because it should only be 100% brightened where the sun is.
  13. I dont know, but you could try save as png and then convert to TGA.
  14. Good news! Today I experimented with my branch and with a grunge texture I found and here is the result I like it better than before myself, because it's now more in the "I-am-a-branch-which-has-been-hanging-on-a-tree-outside-day-and-night-in-many-years" style, if you know that style. comments, suggestions & ideas are very welcome
  15. Maybe I am wrong or sound like I think you don't have experience (this is not the case at all), but do you mean, coloring with a transperant color on another color? If thats so, then just press the "Advanced" button and then you will find what you need. If you mean making a layer more or less transperant (all pixels), then try Bolbaits Transperancy Plugin :wink:
  16. So, I expect that you just do a fast magic wand on art like this?
  17. Thanks for noticing, Oma. Here is the second attempt: I tried dents on it, but it didnt help much. There must be some way to make it look more real on. But I am ok with the result so far. Thank you for the help. And here I tried using relief, as Curmudgeon mentioned: For some reason it didn't really seem to help in the end, but I tried :wink: Any suggestions, tips or tricks are very welcome. That was why I started this topic.
  18. Let's say that this is a compressed JPEG photo and you accidentically deleted the PDN file. Now you want the transperancy back, but the magic wand always leaves something left. Maybe there is a lot of small places where there is white between the actual object, like on photos of trees, bushes, plants etc. That is why that a tool like this could be usefull :wink:
  19. I just tried Oma's method to do it and here is the result: I got a more dark-golden color than oma did, but anyway. I will try again using Curmudgeon's way and see if I'll get a better result
  20. Hello! I got a branch I made not so long ago (look below, and after using the Line/Curve tool to give it shape, I stopped and was thinking. Because I don't got any idea of how to cover the branch with a bark/trunk texture. I didn't even make a texture for it yet. If any of you know or have an idea, maybe just a tip or trick that may help me, I would be very happy. I know that Ash made a tutorial of how to make wood, but the result is more ideal for indoor wood/cutted wood than for a branch. To help you some more, i uploaded the pdn file. Download it by clicking here! Thanks for reading & replying if you do that
