This is the idea I had when I saw Darman's sniper rifle edit.

It isn't a sniper rifle, its a Heads Up Display. Wink The picture is brilliant though, may I ask how you did the multiple auras around the droids? :scratch:

This is what I think he he could have done if he used GIMP.
First he created a new layer. Then he 'Free Selected' around the droid. After that he found a way to evenly make an aura around the edge using either the fuzzy brush or the the regular paintbrush and then Gaussian blurring it. Once he finished that, he duplicated the layer twice or more and moved two of the duplicated layers slightly down and to the right.
As for the cut-up oval, You make a new layer, make a red oval, Gaussian blur it, reduce the opacity of the layer, use the eraser tool to make a hole in the shape similar to the outer border and then click once next to the circle where you want the edge of the red circle-piece. Press Shift to make a line and make a perfectly straight line all the way across. Repeat it twice on each of the four 'sides'.

That's how you edit the actual picture. The black part and distance meter is much easier.
Make a new layer. You use Circle Select to make a perfect circle around it. Click Select at the top of the screen and then hit invert. Use the black paintbrush to color the outside in with black. Make a new layer. Then click 'Select'>'None'. Take the paintbrush tool and pick the color purple. Find a way(increase the size of the brush) To cover up the hole and a bit more. Then take the eraser tool and increase it's size so that it was as big as the hole was and erase that much. Gaussian blur it and reduce the layer's opacity.Add a new layer. Add the text you want and the squares. Then Gaussian Blur it.

This is actually much easier done than said. I make it sound so complicated. Razz

That's correct, except I used Paint.net's outline effect (plugin) and Gaussian blur to make the auras, instead of fuzzy brush, and if you look closely, under the auras there's green, which is blurred even more. The whole thing was 11 layers.

GIMP planet tutorial

Post by Rabid Squirrel on Mon Aug 16, 2010 5:08 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!

Step One: Open up any picture you want. I will open the planet from my last tutorial.

Step Two: Click Colors>Colorize-Leave everything to default. (First bar-180, second bar-50, third bar-0)

Step Three: Click Filters>Distorts>Video>Striped>OK

Your all done!

It's not bad...

There are some "pixel-y" outlines, but it's not bad.

But why the heck did you pick that toy helmet over a real looking one?

Well, I got bored and I was just messing around with GIMP, and this is what I made:

Yeah, it's not great, but I think it's 'okay'.
