First tut, so don't laugh... It is kinda gruesome, but a cool effect.

This tut will be mostly in pictures, so just follow the arrows on the screenshots. Most are self-explanatory.

You will use:

Fire!

Paint bucket

Gradient (reflected linear and radial)

Curves

1. Fill the Background with black.

2. Add a new layer, you can name it if you really want...

Tut2.jpg

3. Select the light grey on the pallette for your primary and clear (0 on the transparency alpha) and use the linear gradient or the radial gradient (see arrows).

4. Make a line or radial on New Layer.

5. Repeat 4 until you are sastified with the result.

6. Go to Effects>Render>Fire! while still on New Layer. Adjust until you are satisfied with the results.

7. Go to Adjustments>Curves and adjust the luminosity to darken the 'blood.'

8. Go back to Curves to make it redder. Notice that it is still separate from the background. Do not flatten, since it will mess with the coloring.

9. Once again, go back to curves to fine-tune the darkness on luminosity.

10. Finally, we flatten the image and voila! Bloody metal!

Don't be afraid to show what you've made!

Thanks to Sarkut for the link back to the plugin!

Now epic epiphany.

This is....

An awesome tutorial! Great Effect, could be useful.

But I dont get anything like yours.

Are you sure you made a whole new layer for the grey gradient? I forgot it once and it threw off the picture completely!

Now epic epiphany.

Nice effect, dgirl555.

I haven't been able to duplicate it.

This is the closest I've gotten, and had to do a lot more steps to get this close.

Maybe you could show more details, like a screen shot of the Fire! effect window

showing the settings you used. The effect I get at this point is very dark, mostly

black in the areas where your image is silvery.

That plugin is Tom Jackson's Fire Effect, btw.
