here is the tut:
|first, start a new document (size 150 by 500, background transparent). make a rectangle shape on this and fill it with a colour similar to this:|
now start using your brushes, with various shades of you starting colour, and start brushing on the rectangle. make some patchy shapes using all your different brushes (it doesnt matter if you go over the edges of the rectangle, in fact its better that you do) untill you end up with something like this:
then comes the fun bit. get the normal smudge tool and smudge up all of the rectangle, making sure you spike up the top of you rectangle.
finally add a one pixel stroke to the layer, using a colour slightly darker than the rest of the image.
all there is left to do now is add a sutible image and a bit of writing and save it as a png and your done. here is my final result:
there you have it, my first tut. a bit pointless but oh well...
anyway tell me what you think.
