How to make a comet.


Recommended Posts

In this tutorial, I teach you how to make a comet like in my sig. PS! *= Optional

Step 1. Start a new layer sized: Width: 375 and height: 150. Paint the area with black.


Step 2. Choose a color (whatever you desire) and make brush width 25. Click once near the right edge to make a dot.


Step 3. Change the brush width to 24. Make an another dot so that it will be about 2/3 over the first dot. Repeat this until your brush width is 3. (Zoom to 200% so that you could be precise and the comet would not curve).



Step 4. Choose the white color :Colors: and brush width 20. Repeat the step 3 but with these <-- instructions. Repeat until your brush size is 1.


Step 5. Effects > Blurs > Zoom Blur :ZoomBlur: . Place the center right in the tip of the comet. Zoom amount 100. Repeat Zoom Blur by pressing Ctrl + F.



Step 6. Effects > Photo > Glow :Glow: Radius: 10.


Step 7. Zoom Blur once more on the exact same position where you blurred it before. Zoom Amount 100.


*Step 8. You can make it look cooler by adding ''moving stars''. Select magic wand :MagicWandTool: Tolerance: 35%. Click outside the comet. Effects > Noise > Add Noise :AddNoise: . Intensity: 70, Color Saturation: 0, Coverage: 15.00 (you may change the coverage amount if you want it but not too much) Deselect the selection :RectangleSelectTool: .


*Step 9. Effects > Blurs > Motion Blur :MotionBlur: . Angle 00.00, Distance changes between 5 - 20 depending on how big the coverage amount of the Noise is.


And youre done! :D Please show off your results, Im curious :D

Thank you. :D

Everheat, You have a great tutorial. I don't mean to harm it or you in anyway,

but thought you might take a look at this one by -Expiration- named "Helio Ignite Sig©®"

and found here > viewtopic.php?f=15&t=22438.

It was a challenge to me as I was new to PDN forum at the time.

Keep up the good work.

Is it me --or do buffalo wings taste like chicken?

Yep. This is a duplicate tut. You may feel free to post this as a reply/alternative method to the Ignite tut.


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.
