Interface Orbs - Long and Image Heavy

Recommended Posts

Alright, I finally finished. Here's mine:

Took me awhile to finish it and the reflections don't look the best because of the large amount of white, but I think it turned out ok.

Edit: Great tut. Thank you so much.

Here is my first attempt. I know I messed up somewhere and am still refining my methods but I love the tut. Great job.

I need some help here please

In Step 12 by “Draw a white filled circle…” you mean to select the Ellipse Select (shortcut key: S) tool draw a circle and fill it with white or to select the Ellipse (shortcut key: O) tool on “Draw filled shape”, draw a white circle like you instructed in Step 2 “using the Ellipse tool on "Draw filled shape", draw a dark gray circle”

In Step 13 “Using a transparency gradient, draw a linear gradient …” how do I do this?

Thank you “Call me expired. Please.” I got it.

But in Step 13 “Then set the Transparency to about 50% Transparent.” setting Adjustments/Transparency 50% was a mess. So I double clicked the Layer Properties and set the Opacity to 100 (there is no % in that setting window) and it worked perfectly.

Thanks again.

Call me expired. Please. Your tut is one of the greatest.

Your place is on mount Olympus. But please think of us mortals.

It took me ages to figure out what I was doing wrong between “Draw a white filled circle…” and “Using a transparency gradient, …” I kept forgetting to change :AllColorChannels: to :AlphaChannel: and vice versa. Another thing that confused me was the Transparency % which for me newbie would have been better with the minus sign i.e. Then set the Transparency to about -50%

Well here is my try :)

amazing tutorial...not extremley easy, but easy enough for a beginner like me. There were a few things I couldn't get right, but i took advantaeg of a few plugins to obtain a similar effect.

here's my attempt

Very nice tutorial. I really enjoyed it. I also liked how clear and layed-out each step was, very easy to follow. Nice screenshots of each step, too. That's what made it really easy. :D Good job.

Here's my go at it:
