Target First I created the huge white circle, and kept shrinking/coloring the selection to create each section
SwordSelected Used grow select to make blue outline, placed it in a separate layer so I can change it whenever
Fireballs Border select
Planet Neat planet I made using shrink. This one was fun, I’ll consider making all the planets and the sun on one image :wink:

I felt like I’ve improved alot these past challenges, thanks to the lectures and also the inspiration from the other posters here :slight_smile:

Didn’t get too creative with this one.

Used the excuse of doing more images to do a Cloak, and used shrink to do the inside of the boarder.

Followed the lecture for the shield but changed the colours.

And I made boarders/highlights for my weapons during the last lecture:

These techniques are really cool!


I went for a potions theme and used various selecting methods in both of them.
To begin with I used border select (both circular and rectangular) for creating the overall potion bottle shape, filled it in.
Inverted the selection and created a gradient background.
Then used fuzzy select for selecting the created shape again and shrinked the edge. Gradient for liquid. Grew the border by 1 and used the border select to create a more defined outline. A few more tweaks to make them look more like potion bottles e.g corks and liquid level.
Could have also used the Colorize function I found under Colors but decided to do the bottles twice for the sake of exercise :slight_smile:

Just experimenting. Used the selection tools to create borders, etc. Then I did a gausion blur filter. And added a gradient background.


Made a game icon being frozen progression:

I had coloured noise layers with masks. The masks were then grown/shrunk/bordered/whatnot to change the effect on the icon and the border around the image.
