request for liquid-y tutorial


Recommended Posts

This effect seems to have been popping up a lot recently...the colored liquid swirly thing especially like the images that Helio seems so apt at...

I know there are more examples, I just can't seem to find them at the moment. :? Anyway, if either of you two feel like sharing your secrets, let me know!

Neither have I, but I found something close to it.

1. fill canvas with black

2. draw random shapes

3. apply dents

4. w/hexagonal grid thingy set to brush size four, on an new layer, make a yellow grid and gaussian blur

5. add new layer, apply grid hexagonal thing with brush size four and green color, and gaussian blur

6. set blending mode to overlay (I think)

7. merge layers

8. add new layer

9. with brush size one, make a black hexagonal grid

Well, I'm not sure it deserves a tutorial, I just threw that together in about two minutes to show what you could use the Hex grid for. Anyway, your right, I used the Dents plugin on some green and black clouds. As for the grid, the eaten away effect was simpley adding some clouds set to additive over a grid.

Looks good FrEak...one more question for Helio/FrEaK...I'm still having trouble getting the hex grid to have that kind of effect where it looks like it's dirty or rusty...looks like a clouds layer on top of a hex layer...so:

A) How do you make it look like that?

B) Helio, how did you accomplish that amazing glow on your grid?

Sorry if I'm being too thorough. :) I'm really more interested in concepts than replicating images right now. God is in the details, so they say.
