Fun with gradients
Tree sadly cut up
Looking Good! Loving the guitar! that works really well.
More lectures on the way, we had an automation hiccup so manually sorting them out now - That should keep you busy over the weekend!
Thanks. It will have to wait to next week as I’ll be on the road with one of my axes.
Love the Unity Blender and now Gimp courses you and Ben do. I thought I’d concentrate on the graphics side of life and then focus again on Unity or Unreal. Big Fun…
Wow! These gradients are really fun to play with, but can be super useful for shading as well. Awesome!
I’m also really enjoying re-using my images to see how different they look after each lecture
Eyeball, Rainbow, House with gradients
Here are my gradients. I used images I had created for previous challenges.
For the background I used the gradient “land and sea” and the shape “linear”.
For the background I used the gradient “sunrise” and the shape “conical” (sym),
For the background I used the gradient “brushed aluminum”, the shape “spiral (ccw)”, and the mode “darken only”.
For the background I used the gradient “browns”, the shape “linear”, and the mode “lighten only”.
I decided to revisit some earlier work which was quite challenging. I ended up using selection tools a whole lot during this exercise. It is quite powerful.
For the first it is the emblem we made at beginning of this section. There is only one layer so utilizing selection tools and multiple layer types I brought out this:
With the flag I had to re-think about border as well as adding more layers, etc:
The house took a bit of work figuring out where to use gradient and where to use air brush tool, I used bother here in different areas:
Finally I like how the sword turned out, figured this out just playing with gradients till I found something that I liked:
Shield with Gradient BG and Wood Part
I’m trying to get something happening using a palette from the Moving Circles optical illusion. So far… nope. This is nothing.
Added a sheen to my icon background
Added a shining effect to the icon background
Added gradient shading and background
Runic sword; I really like how the runes turned out.
Added fiery effect around the fireball spell
- Energy bar
- Some kind of offensive magic spell
A hastily sketched disproportionate guitar
A new background on an old image
A grassy lake shore. This was a happy accident
Doing a rainbow with the gradient tool wasn’t as easy as first thought.
Dual Swords (reused but with gradients)
Shuriken (reused but with gradients)
