Hello!

 

This is my first tutorial and I hope to be helpful ...

 

 

 

 

 

I searched it to see if someone made it before but no result.

 

 

I searched for keyword torus or ring.

 

 

 

 

 

What we want to achieve:

 

 

post-90516-0-85573600-1372068537_thumb.p

 

 

 

 

 

Plugins required: Shape3D, AAs_Assistant, Gridlines, Gausian Blur

 

 

 

 

 

1. Add New Layer and fill it with colour what you want. I used #7F6A00.

 

 

2. Now in Shape3D choose setings like in image below:

3. You must get this:

4. Run AAs_Assistant with default settings twice.

 

 

5. Duplicate layer

 

 

6. Add new layer then choose Gridlines plugin - Horizontal spacing = Vertical spacing = 20

 

 

7. Go to Select layer down and choose Ellipse Select tool, make an ellipse and fine adjustment of the shape with Move Selection. Gridlines help us to fine-adjust the shape of the ellipse.

8. Cut sellection.

 

 

9. Use Magic Wand tool and select ellipse cuted before.

 

 

10. Go to Select layer down and move sellection like in image below then cut selection.

11 Go to Select layer up and Use Magic Wand to select ellipse again.

 

 

12. Go to Select layer down an use Color Picker to select external color to the ring. My color is #2C2500.

 

 

13. Use Paint Bucket to fill selection with color. Flood Mode = Contigous. Tolerance 50%. Click on the interior wall of the ring not on the center of ellipse.

 

 

14. Deselect (CTRL+D) go to gridline layer and delete it.

 

 

15. Merge Layer Down.

 

 

16. Use Magic Wand tool (Flood Mode, Tolerance 50%) sellect the interior wall of the ring and make a gradient linear (reflected) with second color #DBAE1A (Press and hold Shift key, right click and drag horizontaly). Primary color is #2C2500. 

 

 

17. Use Magic Wand tool (Flood Mode, Tolerance 50%) sellect the entire exterior wall of the ring and make a gradient linear (reflected) with second color #DBAE1A like at p.16. Deselect (CTRL+D).

 

 

18. Apply AAs_Assistant and then Gausian Blur 2.

 

 

 

 

 

You can use Adjustements > Curves to improve the final quality, you can select entire Layer and rotate as you wish.

Looks interesting, but step #1 the colour - #7F6AA0 produces a purple. Steps #12 - 17 could use some additional screenshots, also you have not mentioned what colour the primary should be on Steps #16 & 17. I will bookmark for later all the same.

I have a few problems.

#7F6AA0 gives me a nice purple color.

No.16, Flood mode selects both inside and outside of the ring.

Layer selection should be clarified. Not just up and down layer.

And it looks shiny, did you use a blending mode?

 

DrewDale, typing away when you posted and so I have a few repeats. :bertie:

 

Edit: All my problems solved.

Sorry for the errors and for my bad english.

I modified the value of the color in my first post: #7F6A00

Go to layer up or layer down mean Select Layer up or Select Layer down.

 

This is my new try:

@Drew: can you post your Colors Window?  Sounds like some strangeness with your monitor or color profile.

I still got a little confused, but your screenshots helped me to figure it out my own way. I can see possibilities for future projects.

 

Made another ring in that infamous purple and then used Color Flip/Rotate and found blue.

Any chance of sharing how you solved it? Apart from the colour that I managed to sort out, the rest of the tute makes no sense to me at all. Steps 11 - 17 need screenshots in my opinion!

Apologies Klaxxon for posting my way, but I was asked and I didn't know were else to put it.
I got it now and my screen shot, hopefully, will be a help to others.

Hey, I really like your satellite. :)

Edit: removed my version.

Thank you doughty.
 
No problem, I'm glad you did it.
There are people on this forum with a lot of talent and experience and I'm just a beginner.
 
I made this rings and if anyone is interested, please feedback and then I will write a tutorial.

Thank you for the video @xod   ?

 

I'm embarrassed to say that I didn't know what the 'Cook-Torrance' tab did in Shape 3D...now I know.

 

A super-simple way to achieve the same result!  Mine turned out exactly like yours.  :star:
