The final picture could be compare to ice broken on the surface of a lake, or on the ice-barrier. This is what we want to achieve: Before start we need the plugins: Flip select : http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=2325 Color tint : http://paintdotnet.12.forumer.com/viewtopic.php?t=2085 1. Start with a new layer 800x600. Create a gradient from side to side dark gray or black to white. 2. With the differents selection tools, select parts of the images and flip the selection horizontaly or verticaly or both to cut and mix the gradiant. a. Ellipse select + flip both b. Lasso select + creating like a web selection + flip both c. Continue till you've find some chaos you like. 3. Then duplicate the layer and press F4 to set the blend mode to overlay. 4. Go to menu Layer/Rotate/Zoom and zoom about to 1.40x 5. Select the bottom layer and apply a zoom blur on it to have the line jointed to the top layer (between 60-80px). On the screenshot while you are increasing the zoom amount you could see the blue line moving to the red one. You haven't to be too precise... 6. Select the top layer and press F4 to set the blend mode to negation. And flatten the picture (ctrl+shift+F). 7. Duplicate the layer and apply a gaussian blur (4px). 8. Apply now the frosted glass effect (2 to 4px). 9. Still on the top layer, press F4 to set the blend mode to lighten. 10. Flatten the picture (ctrl+shift+F). 11. Apply the Ed Harvey's color tint effect to choose a light blue-green. That's finished! It's time to drink a good hot chocolate.
