Glossy Galaxy Ball Tutorial

Recommended Posts

I've tried this tutorial and I keep getting stuck. I really think you should name your layers so who ever decides to follow the tutorial won't get confused. I also think the steps could be a little more clearer when explaining them.  I think the tutorial works better for intermediate users of paint.net rather than beginners.

I usually don't name layers (even if there are over 100), maybe I should have in this one, but I wrote the tut a while ago. I do specify where each layer goes, however. It is a little harder tut. Where do you keep getting stuck?

I keep getting stuck around step 10. I think this tutorial should be re written in some places.

Hello HELEN,

 

People are requesting me to have this tutorial as a video version, looks like they have some problems of understanding of how some tools, effects and layers are being used.

and they need it to be done with only using the native tools and effects of PDN, no any additional plugins.

 

So I have created a video as they requested, But I think I messed up the sequence of some layers :D, but it looks so understandable.

 

Any ways, I can't publish it to the web (YouTube) unless if I get your permission on that, I will give you the credit, in the video and also in the YouTube details Page.

 

Thanks.

 

EDIT: I forgat to put the result:

I finally created a glossy galaxy ball by following the video tutorial that Yellowman did. Thanks Yellowman & HELEN. I would post my results but I'm not sure how.

Here is my result for the galaxy ball. I know the result isn't perfect but I tried following the video as best I could.

@ mackenzieh, Excellent result, try to curve the line using right mouse button to get a Bézier curve.
