Do You Believe in Magic? by Keah59 Do You Believe in Magic? by Keah59
--FULL VIEW PLEASE (HUGE FILE WARNING)--

I was downloading brushes again today, and I found a beautiful set by luciferous-glow, as well as a convenient step-by-step for how to do fancy colour blends a such (which is what I've been searching the net for for AGES!). So yay. :boogie: I decided to fiddle with some of my favourite custom brushes, and this lovely graced my screen. Just thought I'd share it. ^_^ It's formatted for larger screens (1280x800), so I don't know how it will work on 800x600 or 1024x768. Sorry... ^^;

It looks like that "convenient step-by-step" is no longer up on dA, which is sad.  The trick is the Multiply layer mode.  It works best with a dark background, as you can see and if you know anything about using Multiply.  The darker the background colour, the less the Multiply layer's colours will show up, and conversely the lighter something under the Multiply layer is the more strongly that layer will show.  So the magic circle here was on its own layer and done in white.  I then set up a Multiply layer above it and used the softest brush I could to just brush colours onto both the circle and the galaxy background behind it.  The softer brush makes the colours blend really nicely.  It takes a little trial and error to get everything how you like it, but it's still pretty easy.  Hope that helped!

Thanks! I don't know much about multiply layer mode but I'm sure I can play around and figure it out, I'm good at figuring things out on GIMP!

Don't think so. They're just brushes from ~redheadstock. But I'm glad you like it. ^_^
