Can blur help to create an image like this?


Recommended Posts

The part I am refering to is the people flying from the top of the page. I am very new to PDN and tried to do my own take on it which failed miserably. I cut the subject in this case a wrestler out of a picture and pasted him into multiple layers. Then moved the subject in each layer little by little, merged the layers and tried to implement the blur tool. It didn't quite come out the way I had thought. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

I think what you want to do here is paste the image where you want it on one layer, dulicate that layer, then select a very small sliver of it and stretch it vertically.

Does this help?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Oh, good idea, Oma.

Yes, motion blur (and perhaps Zoom Blur) will help.

Yea. It looks like you'll need them both to pull that off. :wink:

Well, I've had a little idea of how you could do it.

1. Get your image. Make sure the "background" of the image is transparent.

2. Duplicate that layer.

3. Blurs > Zoom Blur on the bottom layer. Do something with the center near the bottom, with a low distance value.

4. Duplicate this layer, then Ctrl+F.

5. Repeat until happy.

6. Merge down all the blur layers.

7. Use sharpen or some other blur to create the lines effect you wanted.

8. Flatten, and your done.

This was fun! I still have a lot of learning to do but it actually came out much better than I thought it would. Andrew your tips really helped a lot too, thanks.

So, how did I do? CC always welcome.
