Glowy Swirl Tutorial

Recommended Posts

I am ashamed to ask, but when I get to use SineWaves, I won't succeed in getting the wave, no matter the value of the amplitude.

I won't get the real wave, surely depending on me.

And neither will I get a real wave, when I go to a higher value of the amplitude.

I hope that someone is willing to help me out on this.

Select the whole layer before running sinewaves.

If you run it on a thin selection it is highly likely the distortion will take the pattern over the edge of your selection. Hence the chaotic result.

I did select the whole layer, after merging the circle layers down to 1 layer, pressing ctrl+a.

After that, I'd run SineWaves, and I would get this effect, as print screened above.

I'm new to paint.net but I created a version of this while playing some some stuff and made this:

Used a few extras but looks ok for a first time going to add some more stuff and see what happens

Hello, I'm new to the site and to paint.net and this tut was great. Thanks for taking the time to do this, I haven't been able to sleep since I started learning this program.

Here's my go at it.
