How did I made this?

Recommended Posts

The title is my main problem... I can't quite replicate this:

can some do it? I know it's quite abusive to ask for this, but this is what's keeping me from advancing...

I know I did the "Waves" tutorial (changing some parameters), and then some crazy stuff with curves, duplicate layers and blending modes, and then changed brightness-contrast, ending with glow...

I'm sure pros in Paint.NET can do this without too much problem.

I hope that I'm not breaking any rules here...

Also, I hope that I'm not sounding like a helpless n00b that can't write well in such an amazing forum...

Of course... there's a link in my first post to the "waves" tutorial... what I mean is if there is a more-or-less easy way to replicate it... I tried it and ended up with this:

(Ignore the ball...) I had to use polar inversion to achieve that... which is something that, in here, seems overkilled...

mmm, I don't know hot to achieve the first one though...

Not to sound rude, but clouds, twist, duplicate layer, flip layer horizontally, layer blend mode: lighten, and curves is too many steps?

I must not be getting your question, sorry.

I'm talking about colors here, and the effect it creates, glowing in the center and dark on the outside... The "waves" only takes me to a gray image... That's what I'm really asking here. No rudeness implied.

Ohh, ok I get it now. Sorry about the confusion.

Those exact colors, eh? My best suggestion would be to experiment with Reflect, Glow, Overlay, and all the other blend modes.

Argh, it's too hard to reproduce! this is as close as I could get:

Here's the history of what I did after the generic steps:

wow that looks dead good....is entirley made from PDN or did you use stock images?

Yes, entirely Paint.NET.

Make sure if you want to post more of your nice work you need to use The Pictorium

and make sure you read The Rules

G'dDay !

Bugster

I did post in the pictorium! (check the 708th page, I'0m sure it's in there) but nobody helped me, so I did this one. I'm sure that when I make more amazing ones I'll post them there. I did also read the rules.

and, when I'm at it... Merry Christmas!

I save all my work as a .pdn and a .png [.bmp on special occasion]

So that in case I need to add or edit something, I always have a .pdn file so you always knnow how you did everything. You might want to too

Lately, I'm saving all the works as a .pdn, but the thing is that with this particular image you have to flatten all the time, and saving as a .pdn doesn't save the history, so it's quite hard to know what you did after you are done with it. I'll screenshot the history of what I do in images like this, that way I'll know a little bit better what I have done.

Has anyone tried to do it? I'd like that you would try it...
