Can you make this wood effect in paint.net?

Recommended Posts

We have several very nice wood tutorials here on the forum. Try searching for them.

I've edited this thread title to add the effect you're asking about. It's a forum requirement that thread titles are descriptive - it makes the forum more easily searched ;)

Once you have found a wood effect that you like, draw your owl on a new layer in a contrasting colour. You can do this using shapes & line tool, creating each new part on a new layer so you can edit them more easily. The big part of the eyes, the nose & the heart will have to be cut out from the body after you have the outline done. Alternatively see if you can find a clipart one & adjust accordingly. Once you have the owl done as you like, merge all the layers down & delete any that you don't need.


Then select the owl with the magic wand set to Global, click on the wood layer & press CTRL + C, create a new layer, press CTRL + P, hide the original owl outline, & Bevel Selection on the copied wooden owl to create a 3Dish owl.You then select change the layer blend mode to whichever works best for you. Probably Multiply. 


Good luck with it & hope that we can see your efforts :D Such a cute image.
