Bend a 2d object, like one bends a regular line.


Recommended Posts

I need to bend this 2d 'viking-pattern' object along a certain shape. Basically I need to cover the snake I've attached with the pattern. I was hoping I could just tap it with the Magic Wand tool and then bend it like you bend a regular line -you know with several "warp-points". I can only stretch it vertically or horizontally though. I hope you understand what I mean. 
I have tried the Grid Warp tool but I can't do it by bending the dimension it's part of. Hope that makes sense.

 

ps. I'm using a localized version of paint.net so I have translated the names of the tools myself.

Hello @Fashy Weaver and Welcome to the forum :)

 

One way I can think of is as thus:

 

Put your snake (remove the white background) - simplest way is with magic wand on the white, then delete.

Put your pattern into a new layer and resize accordingly.

Then use the Trail Plugin to fill the layer.

After which: select snake, go to pattern layer and hit delete.

Change the layer mode for a nice pattern effect.

Result.

I hope this helps.

You are Welcome.  Do you mean like this:

I used the Sin Waves Plugin.  It will be quite laborious to do it that way, but I can't think of anything else at the moment sorry :(

How about the Liquify plugin? The process will still be labor intensive - also fun and you'll learn a great deal about the plugin by playing with it.
