LFC4EVER Posted May 30, 2008 Share Posted May 30, 2008 This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it I am making this tut on my sig, as it has been requested by various people who asked me via PM on how i made my current sig. The result is not exactly as in my sig, as i am just showing you how to create the effect similar to this: Plugins required: Custom Brushes Mini Conditional Hue / Saturation Feather Color Filter You'll also need the Winter Breeze brush set which you can download here How to convert and use PS brushes in PDN: Here How to use Custom Brushes Mini: Here The tut : 1) Fill the background black and add a new layer. Name it "Brush" or whatever else you want to. On the new layer go to Effects > Draw with Custom Brush. Find the brush you wish to use and draw (brush size 500 works best), then press the ok button. Then Ctrl + Shift + I (Invert Colours) so you can see the image. 2) Duplicate the "Brush" layer and name the top layer "Inner Glow" and the middle layer "Rainbow". Select the "Rainbow" layer and apply Effects > Colour Filter, and colour it any colour, it doesnt matter which colour as long as it is not black, grey or white. 3) Now select the "Inner Glow" layer and go to Effects > Feather at these settings: Feather Radius = 1 Effect Strength = 1 True Feather = Yes Apply a Glow the same layer at default settings. You should now have something similar to this. 4) Now, using the rectangle select tool, select a section of the brush that you like, I'm using a selection size of 500px by 100px here. Then Ctrl + Shift + X (or Crop to Selection). 5) Now select the "Rainbow layer", and go to Adjustments > Conditional Hue/Saturation. Apply the following settings. 6) Flatten and your done! The end result should be similar to this: Optional: In step 5, you can further modify the settings such as the hue's in the rainbow by moving the slider in the "Hue action" box, or you can modify the Saturation settings by moving the slider in the "Saturation Adjustment" dialog box. In my sig i used more brushes of the same set, and did more work on it, but the effect is very similar.. Please post your attempts and feel free to comment.
