my abstract background tutorial

Recommended Posts

so this tutorial will teach you how to make this

final.jpg

there are 32 steps, which is about 22 more than intended

you will need

tilinghttp://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=22521

polar to rect http://paintdotnet.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=4173

first create your picture, the same size as your display

step1.jpg

then select the circular gradient with whatever color you want

step2.jpg

then make one in a corner going 1/2 the width of the image

step3.jpg

duplicate that layer and flip it horizontally

step4.jpg

duplicate the flipped one and flip it vertically, then duplicate that one and flip it horizontally

step5.jpg

hit f4 and do negation blending on all of them

step6.jpg

will end up like this

step7.jpg

flatten it

step8.jpg

invert the colors

step9.jpg

cut half of it away with the rectangle select

step10.jpg

and put it in a new layer

step11.jpg

flip it horizontally and do negation blending

step12.jpg

and voila

step13.jpg

then go to relief and do it at 0, 90, 180, and -90

step14.jpg

you should have this

step15.jpg

then duplicate it and flip it

step16.jpg

set layers to multiply

step17.jpg

flatten it

step18.jpg

then create a new layer and put a small circular gradient in the center

step19.jpg

blend it with negation (i believe, forgot to take a pic)

step20.jpg

invert the colors

step21.jpg

then do the relief thing again at 0,90,180, and -90

step22.jpg

use tile image with the settings shown in the picture

step23.jpg

then polar to rect, with settings shown

step24.jpg

and polar inversion with these settings

step25.jpg

cut away half and put it on a new layer

step26.jpg

flip vertically and overlay

step27.jpg

flatten it, cut away half, put it on a new layer, flip the new layer vertically, and flatten

step28.jpg

render clouds with these settings (also use gaussian blur a bit if you want to, like 1-3 at most)

step29.jpg

polar to rect with these settings

step30.jpg

polar inversion with these settings

step31.jpg

and you are done

final.jpg
