  1. I love your tutorials! I especially like this one! Keep up the awesome! Here is my final product! I put it as my siggy too =D! Again, love this tutorial.
  2. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it Sorry, based on how abstract this is, I really had no idea what to name it. Okay, chit chat aside, lets begin. Your goal is to get this, only with any background color you want and obviously not slusher on the side Pretty much, you'll be getting those shapes I put in the corner. Here we go. First of all lets make sure we have all the plugins needed hmm? Pyrochild's Outline Object Multi-Color Gradient Sine Waves 1. Start up Paint.NET with a 800x600 canvas and add a new layer :AddNewLayer: 2. Choose the tool and drag out a rectangle however you like. 3. Fill this rectangle with many a color. Render > Multi Color Gradient. You can use default settings if you want for the sake of the tutorial, but if you want to shake things up a little bit, you can try your own colors. NOTE: If your rectangle is tall instead, make the angle of the gradient 90 degrees. Your rectangle should look like this. 4. Next use the :MotionBlur: (Motion Blur) Tool and set your settings to a blur of 50 and move your angle to -90.00 NOTE: If your rectangle is tall instead, make the angle of the Motion Blur either 00.00 or 180.00 5. Next step, make the shape curv-E. Distort > Sine Waves. Settings: Amplitude: 75 Horizontal Period: 0 Vertical Period: 1 Angle: 90 degrees. You can change the angle and amplitude however you feel, or stay with those settings above. The choice is all yours! Although, I would stay away for the Horizontal and Vertical Period, things can go wrong with those options. Leave em' be. Your image should now look like this. If you chose your own wave-E-ness thats fine. If you followed the Sine Wave settings above it SHOULD look like this. If it doesn't, go through the tutorial again and see what you may have done wrong. Its ok, I can wait. I'm only text after all . Jokes aside, lets resume this tutorial. 6. Duplicate your shape layer. :DuplicateLayer: 7. With your top layer selected, go up the Layers tab and click Horizontal Flip. Also flip it vertically. This will make your colors opposite. Move the top layer however you like (make sure both shapes are touching). 8. Now use Outline Object on both shapes (no need to merge layers yet) Use the following settings 9. On the top layer ONLY, go to the layer properties and change its opacity slightly. I used 214-234 Your image should look like this. 10. Finally, merge the two layers to make one shape. Select it and move it into the corner or the side. (You can move/resize/stretch your shape however you see fit) I think moving my shape into the corner looks pretty nice. Add your background and you should turn out with this. NOTE: If you want to add a glow-like effect. Duplicate your shape layer, and motion blur it at the direction you want at a fairly high radius. Congratz! You just made a colorful and abstract shape to add to your image! If you did my tutorial step by step, I STRONGLY suggest you try it again, with different Sine Wave options, colors, and placements! Be unique! Please post your results! I really want to see how yours turned out and if this tutorial was any help at all!

    Wow this is amazing. But on step 4 with the clone stamp I'm not getting any result like yours Sharp. I guess Im not doing something right
  4. Well, as I said before, hopefully, as I said before, ( typed the tut twice) I was just experimenting as I always do and came across the creation and thought it was good looking.
  5. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it Hi there, this is sLuSHii X. I'll give you a minute to think to your self "who's that?" I made a new account (terribly sorry for the "now spam" account. The account name was a phase I guess you could say. It was my Xbox Live Gamertag for a Left 4 Dead team (semi semi pro I'd say). But now it's changed and all of my signatures I'v made say Dj Slushy on them anyways. Enough about me lets get to the tutorial at hand. ----------------------------------- The Plugins you will need Outline Object Align Object ----------------------------------- This is what your result will be similar too. 1. To begin, get a canvas size of 93X93. Fill the background layer in with black. 2. Add new layer :AddNewLayer:. Hold shift and draw a dark green [267F00] filled circle :ShapeInterior: 3. Effects>Object> Width,4. Softness,250. The more the width the more you should soften so it is not sketchy. The color of the outline should be a light green. 4. Add new layer :AddNewLayer:. Draw a selection box inside the circle. Make sure all four corners are touching the outline. Like this. Add a gradient :LinearGradient:from the bottom of the box to the top of the box. Primary Color,Light Green[267F00] Secondary Color,White[FFFFFF] Deselect and... 5. Gaussian Blur :GaussianBlur: with a radius of 16. It should look like this. 6. Time to add your text. To begin add a new layer :AddNewLayer:. For my text I used Visitor TT1 BRK, but you can use whatever you want, just not too crazy, it is a browser button after all! Make your font white and align it to the center. Now Width,2. Softness,230. Color,Black 7. Finally, lets add that classic glossy look. Add new layer :AddNewLayer:. Go back to layer 2 and magic wand the inside circle. Now go back to layer 4 and use to your circle tool to create a solid WHITE circle :ShapeInterior:. Draw it how you feel, but at least halfway over the text would be nice too. NOTE:In this picture my text is not outlined, thats because I'v done this about three times now and jumped right to the gloss. KEEP YOURS OUTLINED! Layer Properties>Opacity,60-44. It should look like this. Its not much of a change, but as some famous person once said "A little thing can go a long way" - Some Famous Person Go to the background layer, select the black background and remove it(if you want). Flatten and finish! And the outcome... *Imagine a drum roll please* Voila! ------------------------------------------- If the color green isn't your favorite color (it's not mine) then merge layers 2 and 3 down. In other words keep the text and gloss unmerged. Effects>Colors>Color Tint. Change the color to whatever you want. Although, the darker your color the less opacity you want on your gloss layer. Orange is my favorite color! Please post your results I'd like to see how I did for my...sort of first tutorial.
