I think your missing the part about making the background black with the paint bucket before you make a white text on it :wink:

You need to make your background black first. I guess that is kinda implied..

Use the paint bucket fill :PaintBucketTool: to make your background black before making your text...

Way back in January, when I first attempted this, I completely screwed up. "Gaaaaakkk!" I cried "I will never complete this tutorial, ever! Curse you hard tut!". So for the next 5 months I completely ignored it. But when I realized the recent beehive of activity at this thread, I decided to give it another shot. It worked. "Huzzah!" I declared. And here are the results fantastico!:

Here's the neat, tidy, and clean version:

Here's the normal version:

And here is the awesome zoom blurred version:

numbertwo.png

One more time!

Huzzah!

I think what everybody is doing wrong is:

a) Gaussian blurring too less or too much

B) Not reseeding clouds enough

and/or

c) Putting the text on the same layer as the background

This is my first attempt >< and first post btw ^^

Couple of questions:

1)When doing the clouds what colours should be set on primary/secondary?

2)How many times would you suggest to repeat the clouds? 4...20?

3)Any ideas on where I went wrong with mine?

1. Black and White. You can color it with Curves+ later

2. 6-12 is good enough

3. REPEAT CLOUDS MORE! And Gaussian Blur 1/8th of the font size, a.k.a if the font size is 72, Gaussian Blur it at 9

4. Welcome to the forums! :D

whats he mean by B) Not reseeding clouds enough

and/or

c) Putting the text on a different layer than the background

im new here so i dont much asbout PDN.

i really think there should be some pic instructions so we can see what it supposed to look like every step of the way in the tut.

It means that instead of putting the text on the same layer as the background color, you should make a new layer and then type the text. Reseeding means hitting ctrl+f after you make the clouds. Capisce?
