@welshblue, no such thing as too many tutorials from you! I think @lynxster4 was expressing what we're all thinking--WOW! :)

 

 

 

Never too much!!!   :P    I'm enjoying every minute of this!   <3

Here's a full version of the GridGrad plugin, which shouldn't crash: https://forums.getpaint.net/topic/111660-gradient-grid/

The blades at the front of a turbojet engine are the compressor. The turbine is at the back, being powered by the exhaust.

Turbojet:

The jet engines on commercial aircraft are turbofans, so the front blades are the fan:

I am learning something new : a turbine works like a vacum cleaner. :)

Link changed ... thanks.

 

I realised my error when I was looking at images to make an exploded view of an 'engine' ... suggestions as to what the title could be anyone ?

Make the blades and cowling of a back to front jet engine seems a bit long winded

What would you consider as an excessive number of screenshots in a tutorial ?

I've found one I wrote for @DrewDale years ago but was never published publicly.  It's quite long winded with over 40+ screenshots and whilst it teaches some interesting techniques to get to the final finish, like using Kaleidoscope/ interesting mix of Blend Modes etc ... not so sure it's needed here.  It's basically a tut' how to get to here

Thoughts anyone  ... except @Woodsy who does a great job on the PDF's and will be thinking ... How Many ?! :P

 

@Seerose ... I love this.

Very profound ... would be great as part of my arm sleeve tattoo if I can incorporate it.  

And don't worry about rep points ... I'm sharing because I want to give something back like others have done

Advancedish Planet by Mr Bobert has 113 images. I don't consider that excessive.

 

Beginners should be led by the hand with small steps showing a screenshot. Advanced users will have regular techniques down pat, so I wouldn't show a screenshot for setting colors or inverting a selection or setting a blend mode for example.

40+ screenshots is nothing!   Bring it on!   :lol:

@Woodsy ... failing miserably to get contrails or motion sense but have sorted out the lighting etc

 

The lighting is great.  I am eager to see if I'll ever get to your level...however,  I am concerned for your safety because turbines won't work in the vacuum of space.  :)  I do hope you make it back to earth.

When I put screenshots in for the regular techniques it's usually so that I don't get confused :D  And that's easily done these days :/

I'd forgotten about the Advanced Planet tut' ... still it beggars the question of how to make a revolver cylinder cheerful if I do decide to post it.

Looking at it again Depths is pretty dark

 

@jayj ... many thanks.  I wouldn't rush to get to any kind of 'level' ... have fun learning from tutorials ... or your own thing ... but make what you're happy with and if it doesn't work, send it to the big recycle bin in the sky.  Whatever you bin you'll take something from it into another image somewhere along the line.

 

Ahhh my safety.  As I said to Eli in my gallery ... <geek> Newton's third law etc. <geek> You can't see the liquid oxygen/helium/ hydrogen tanks hidden in the the fuselage ;)

OK that's blagging it ever so slightly  a lot.  I think I'll have to put a nose cone on

These are very cool tutorials. I just want to also add a huge thank you so much for making a downloadable PDF file to go with it. It's beyond appreciated, to all of you who have done that. Makes it so easy to save and refer to later on. Saves me time not having to create my own pdf and with heavy image use, that can take a bit of time.

Thank you @lynxster4.

It's not as smooth as it could be because of the original rotation of 11 degrees (as per the tutorial instructions).

Six frames in all, eight layers. One layer for the white background, one layer for the foreground and six layers for the blades.

@Djisves ... sorry - I missed this  That's a great job.  Love it

I see what you mean about the smoothness but I don't think it detracts at all (just think there's a worn bearing in there 😉)

Thanks @Icegodes ... and you've taken it to a new level.  I'm actually pleasantly surprised how good it looks shrunken down

 

As for your image, that is very strange, so it appeals to me a lot.  😁
