well most of the stuff I did in the tank pic is pretty easy and basic, just a lot of it is in a small scale and took a while to 'get it right'. pretty much everything in there can be either classified as a line (with varying transparency) or a color detail (also with varying transparency). The actual pdn file is really, really messy...

As for the camo, I kinda forgot how to do it since I did it awhile ago and like my normal self, didn't save it as the pdn file (I have since learned to keep a pdn around). But, I was able to figure it out again, although its not quite right, I think i'm missing something (or my numbers are different). Basically just choose a couple of colors you want (I chose 3 and keep in mind that you'll want to have a background color too) and make some thinnish blobs running horizontally (as if you were making a conventional camo but keep some open space around for the background color). Feel free to overlap with different colors so it appears vaguely 3D and do the blobs however large you want. I kept all mine on the same layer but to each his own. After I got a bunch of intersecting blobs of green and tan and brown, then go to Effects->Distort-> Dents. Go to the stretch tab and change the angle from what it was to 90, and then play with the amount to determine how much its stretched. Then go back to the General and Detail tabs and play around with it until you have something you like, then click okay. Depending on how much space you took up doing it and how much of the camo you want, you could either do in one shot, doing all the blobs in one layer and then doing what I said above, or do chunks at a time (basically repeating everything above on a new layer to add diversity and depth, which I think is what I did for the tank as its pretty complex). Then, whatever you were going to have as your background color, place that in a layer beyind the camo blobs. Merge all layers and voila.

In my case, it was a little too bright, so I just took a darker green, increased the opacity and then covered the whole thing in it (using the filled in rectangle tool0 to make it a darker greenish color (which also helped in reducing the contrast between the colors, making it appear more 'homogenized'?). I hope it helps. I'd make a tut or at least give you guys some screenshots but for some reason this computer won't do screen shots, so out of luck there, I guess.

Anyways, thanks for the comments, they're appreciated.

Dents! *smacks forehead*

That was my second guess, though I never tried it out. :|

And now we know. :D

I present to you... the awe and wonder that is... an uninteresting paper bag!

What could be inside?!

Does anyone care?!

Why are there so many Chuck Norris jokes?!

Click above to find out!*

*Total lie

A bit of blue would make that look better! Also your the fact thing in your sig doesnt make sense.... because 97% and then 4% adds up to 101%??? huh?

sine waves = no,

semi-transparent = yes,

gradients = no,

gravity = no,

newest baby = yes & no!

1. 1 white dot centered on a black image + sparkles

2. Layer Rotate/Zoom, apply a zoom!

3. Zoom blur

4. Twist

5. Duplicate the layer / Flip it / F4; blend mode= Addition

6. Background image: new (baby) update for the vibrato plugin (to be published soon)...

This is how to make the crumpled paper look.

I'll just leave this here... I felt it was too short for its own thread (It would take like 5 seconds to make one if everyone feels it does deserve its own thread.)

The actual bag itself was a lot of Shape3D angles that I don't remember. :P

Thanks Wither, I shall try the crumpled paper soon, while I suppose for the bag I shall have to go by chances with the shape 3d (box shape, I suppose)
