    This is what I have so far, but I want to add some kind of snow effect by his feet. I think I could use splatter brush but I need to see about changing the color.

    Just make a new layer, apply the splatters, go to the colours menu in the top bar, then change the colours with the colourize tool. You could also use clipping masks, but they are a bit more difficult (not my tutorial):

    I suggest you go here for fonts: http://www.dafont.com/

    Hundreds and hundreds of fonts in there. You copy and paste your downloaded fonts into the ''fonts folder'' in the control panel.

    I'll add this to the OP aswell : D

    I'm working on a custom wallpaper and need to do some flame effects. I tried searching for some fractal designs to get me started but I can't find much that give a 'wavy flame' effect.

    One tip for this is to google a stock picture of flames, for example this one:



    Then, use the ''Colour to Alpha'' tool in the ''Colors'' section found in the top bar, and choose the colour which you want to eliminate, in this case you want the black eliminated so you can use the flames in the picture.

    After this you can do several stuff to alter the flames, for example setting the flames on different modes, changing the colors, warping them a little, and adding some smoke there too in the same exact way you added the fire.

    There is nobody contributing as much in the photoshop section as Spyrde does in the gimp section.

    If you have a question relating to PS, either create a thread or post in the Graphic Inspiration or DS Clubhouse threads, there is alot of useful info in those threads as well. Hell, send me a PM and I'll answer what I can, when I can.

    There have also been some extremely helpful threads in the past that are great for beginners, for example:

    http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread...=1#post2555986
    http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread...=1#post2878890
    http://www.psu.com/forums/showthread...=1#post3549448
    Some of it is rather old so I'm not sure whether the links in those threads still work.

    Alot of us are busy and will rarely make a tutorial unless there is a demand for it. As Gimp is a free service, there are alot more people using it than PS.

    Sorry for the hijack spyrde.

    Haha no problem : D

    Cybertox, PS and GIMP are fairly similar so you could shoot questions this way too, but like C-c said, the DS is all about helping others, so you could PM any of the members or post in those threads to get answers regarding PS.

    I decided against the flames for now. Pretty satisfied by the final result since I was looking for something plain

    Anything special you guys would like tips on? I'm currently in the middle of some tough exams but after those are done I'm sure I'll find the time to get back to making tutorials.

    it would really help if in your tutorial video the program was in English.
    Otherwise i have to watch and count how far along or down was the option your are selecting - that means a lot of play pause and rewinding.
    Also i'm not entirely sure of the level your tutorial was aimed at but things like render & c4d & brush it says "chose" them or "add" them but it doesnt tell me what exactly they are and how i get them loaded to the gimp program in the first place.....

    Some good tips and links throughout the thread.
    I'm competent with Gimp, but by no means an expert, so some of these things are quite helpful.

    2 month late reply but here we go:

    There's a steep learning curve with gimp. I remember I had quite a tough time starting out last year (I watched Spyrde's video countless times trying to see what he did ). Basically the only advice I can give you is to go to deviantart and look at tutorials. Fractals are something like these for example:


    and C4Ds look like these:


    another example is one of my own sigs:


    notice the color and texture from this fractal in the image above:

    The difference is that you mostly use fractals to enhance/add/modify colour in your image and to give it the texture you see in the fractal image, whereas C4Ds are mostly used for their shape and not really colour since most have transparent backgrounds. I know it all seems pretty weird but trust me deviantart is the place where you get great fractal packs, C4Ds, brushes and most importantly tutorials
