Alright, let's get started, first make a picture that is 250x150 pixels.


Now select the Line tool, set the width to 10 and make a shape something like this (or how you want it).


Now do it again, but kind of like this.


Now apply Gravity (Distort>Gravity) with these settings:







No check

No check

No check


Now apply Motion Blur (Blurs>Motion Blur) with these settings:

125 - 127

20 - 22


Now use Power Stretch (Distort>Power Stretch) with these settings:





0.3 -0.4 (Or where you want, it looks good here)

0.5 - 0.6 (Or where you want, it looks good here)



Now use TwistZ (Distort>TwistZ with zoom) with these settings:

27 - 28

1.5 - 2


-0.4 - -0.5 (Or where you want, it looks good here)

0 (Or where you want, it looks good here)

5 (Like always)


There are A LOT of ways to do this part, so do it how you want.

But, here's how I did it:

Copy the whole picture,

Use the Canvas Size (Image>Canvas Size) tool and make it so that it's 500x150 pixels(Select the middle-left square in the bottom right),

Paste it in,

Grab the middle left resize square and move it all the way to the other end.


Now add some kind of text in between the space in the center (If you put all the coords how I did, not sure if it's there otherwise.)


And there we go!

Looks like a Snidely Whiplash mustache. :) Clever.


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.
