Helio Ignite Sig©®

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah i got another question 'bout the Helio Sig...

I was wondering how you did the blue gradient... Well, I mean..

I know how to come up with the blue gradient but i was wondering how you blended the blue gradient to the

white flame with the crescent part. 'Cause every time i try to add the blue gradient it overwrites everything.

Did you put everything on separate layers?

I think he mean to make this part:

3.Start near the right of the canvas at around (385,50).

Using a white paintbrush at a width of 20 pixels, click once.

Move your cursor 5 pixels over using the arrow keys, lower the pixel width by 1 using the '[' key, and click once again.

Keep doing this until your pixel width goes down to ten.

easier^^

I've worked and worked with this tut. I've struggled learning and here's

my nervous arrow moves and hard to click the mouse without sliding off.

My tail is a little squiggley! but I tried.

How do you make the "cresent thingy"?

Good job rtargo, although I would suggest adding a little more stretch to the tail, in the 'Stretch' tab of Dents.

As for the crescent shape, I think I drew a curved line using the line/curve tool in a blue-ish cyan color, and then Gaussian blurred it by 1 or 2 pixels, followed by a linear (reflected) transparency gradient from the center to the edge of the canvas (vertically).

Hope this helps!

Thanks Expiration, I have PDN version 3.3.1 and do not have the "Stretch" tabs in Dents.

Can you tell me where to download it?

Also, I'm having a problem with the "Gaussian blur set at 1 or 2 pixels".

When I click on Gaussian blur, I only see "Radius" option.

I have Gaussian blur+ and the options are: Radius, Channel to blur and Blend Mode.

Am I looking in the wrong place for the pixel settings? Thanks.

I love this tut... I have one question though. Where's step 5?

Woops. Mis-numbered the steps. :oops:

Thanks for noticing, I'll fix it right away.

Glad you enjoyed my tut!

Hmm, the 'Stretch' Tab is on the Dents plugin when I view it. I'll show you a picture of where it is.

As for the Gaussian blur, the 'Radius' is measured in pixels. Sorry for the confusion. :D

Expiration, I lucked-up some how on Ed Harvey Effects package

for v3.3 update on 2008-04-14 and found the "Stretch" in his Dents.

Downloaded and also found Weave which I've been looking for.

But, now I have two Dents under Distort....so I'm ready to go.

It had dawned upon me that the Pixels were = to Radius in mine.

Thanks so much for your patience. I'll try not to be so much bother.
