how to make abstract backgrounds

Recommended Posts

Hello !!!!

I would like to make some Wallpapers for my webpage... and so I check out some other pages and searched for other ideas.....

I found something like this one....

And now I would like to know, what would be the best way to create abstract backgrounds like this....I know, it depends on what I want, but I didn't know, how to start... also because I am a paintdot Starter.... :D:cry:

Thanks for helping...

Greetings from Germany....

The easiest way would be to download Simon's Custom Brush plugin, and line brushes from deviantArt and then brush and colour the whole background.

If you want more flexibility, then you can use the line tool in PDN to sketch out what you want, and then colour and shade in using paintbrush :PaintBrushTool: , gradients :GradientTool: and blend modes (F4).

Those wallpapers are amazing, i'm going to try and recreate them in PDN after i finish my pixel art piece. Bookmarked. :P

Merry Christmas
