GIMP Tutorial

Post  Shock Trooper on Tue Aug 24, 2010 6:23 pm

Here's a quick a tutorial I created for GIMP.

Mustafar/Lava Planet Tutorial

Creation Time: 5-10 minutes.
Final Effect:


Step One: Open up GIMP.
Step Two: File>New>640x400>OK
Step Three: Layer>New Layer>name it 'planet'>OK
Step Four: Take the largest Round Paintbrush and click the paintbrush tool. Make sure the color is red. Increase the brush size to 10.00.
Step Five: Put a red circle in roughly the center of the picture. Offset it an way you like. I put it more so in the bottom right portion of the screen, but it still looks centered.

Step Six: Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur>20-25

Step Seven: Filters>Render>Lava>Seed-26 Size-20 Roughness-15>OK

Step Eight: Select>None
Step Nine: Click the Background layer and Bucket fill it with black.

Step Ten:Right click any layer and select 'Merge all visible layers'>Leave the defaults and click Merge.
Step Eleven: Filters>Light and Shadow>Lens Flare>X Coordinate:128 &Y Coordinate: 128>OK

You're all done!

Awesome! That looks really accurate! The sun, planet, and space are fantastic! Too bad my computer's drawing program isn't advanced enough, so I jus decided to have a little fun with it, if you don't mind. And this is not an insult to you, but an insult to my computer's drawing application. THIS IS NOT SPAM! AFTER THIS, WE GO BACK TO HIS DRAWING:

Edit:

Ha ha! I'm not really that bad, though. Making good work bad, that's what I can do on mine!

Very nice! It reminds me of some thing... (Super detailed background with a really cheap cartoon as the main character).
