Exploding planets


Recommended Posts

I'm new, I don't understand the duplicate layer thing. When I hit "Add New Layer" A layer is added but it's not the planet obviously, and when I hit "Duplicate Layer" nothing happens. Help?

When you hit "Duplicate Layer," it won't look like anything has happened, but it's just because the new layer is identical to the first. Keep an eye on the Layers window when you duplicate; you'll be able to see what happens.

Once you have it duplicated, you can run the blending mode and you'll finally see a change.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

My first post in the forums (although I've been a reader for a few months :)), and my first creation with Paint.NET.

I gotta say, this was a fun tutorial, and one of the first to really get my brain churning with creation ideas for Paint.NET. Thanks!

This one I call "Explosion". It was intended to be an exploding star moments after a "shockwave" was produced. I added some colors to "prettify" it :)

Very good work! Looks quite nice, my fellow Hoosier! ;-)

Thanks, although I don't know if I could repeat it. :) Lots of tweaking, undoing and redoing and experimenting with layer blending modes. This one was definitely a good learning experience.

You can also post .PNGs - better quality. Or ZIP the .PDN.
