Do I should hire a professional designer to create my ad just for me? Hell No!!! Designing is a learned craft and of course I do believe that everyone has creativity. What most pro-designers (defined as anyone who writes an advertisement for now, lol) do is... dig and cultivate their insane creativity.

Tablature

Who wins?Metal or rock?For me — there is no battle. Metal is just rock with a bit more distortion and attitude. And the guy that “embodies that” the most is none other than Jack Frost.He’s like a metal god with a touch of motivational speaker. Here’s some cool lessons from him showingyou one of Van Halen’s secrets: EPIC RHYTHM SECRETS.

CorelDRAW

I like CorelDraw except for this, and this could be the deciding factor as this is such an important tool. If anyone could tell me or point me in the right direction to making the CorelDraw pen tool just as flexible as the painting in white blank ordinary paper just like in school, especially (or) in this reguard...

Abstract Background


Abstract art uses a visual language of form, color and line to create a composition which may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Western art had been, from the Renaissance up to the middle of the 19th century, underpinned by the logic of perspective and an attempt to reproduce an illusion of visible reality.

The arts of cultures other than the European had become accessible and showed alternative ways of describing visual experience to the artist. By the end of the 19th century many artists felt a need to create a new kind of art which would encompass the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. The sources from which individual artists drew their theoretical arguments were diverse, and reflected the social and intellectual preoccupations in all areas of Western culture at that time... more.

That's from Wikipedia, but what will we learn exactly today? We wanna show you how to create a simple abstarct picture, that you guys could use for background or wallpaper for example. Let's do that... Here's the steps... Watch and See...!!!

1. Open New Document, 500px x 500px, use Gradient Tool (G) to fill that new blank document with Black Background (#00000) like this:



2. Open Menu Filter > Distort > Wave, let the default just like that.. can you follow me???




3. Click Ctrl + F (9x) to repeat the last applaying Effect, that should be the Wave Distortion:



4. Bite Ctrl + J to get Layer 1. Then choose Transform > Rotate 90 CW

5. Hit Ctrl + Alt + Shift + T twice to get the copy from Layer 1.


6. Suck Ctrl + E twice to merge layer Layer 1 Copy 2 and Layer 1 Copy...


7. Double Click on Layer1, choose Gradient Overlay... just like usual, you guys could apply any color for that Gradient thing... but do not forget to change the mode to Overlay blend... and the most important thing to do now... from all our activity today is Clik OK after we get the appropriate setting.



8. Change the mode Blend layer1 to Screen... and voila... this is what i've got...!!! What about ya' guys?

  • Rain Effect

    Hollaaaa... i came up again pop up from nowhere... Blogwalking is so quiet (or not I was due to limited money? lmao!) outside, the dark is coming, rainy, only a cigarette that accompany... Fraudulent ... Suddenly this thing arrivedon my mind.

    There's so many ways to create rain effect on an image, but this time, I try to share them with what I think is what is the easiest way to reach the making of it.

    Follow the steps:


    First step

    Lift your jemuran outside ... who is more rain tonight as bygones. Bring in, or robber do bring it all to their homes certainly, not to your chest ... so, what are you waiting for...??...?!?!?!


    Second

    Lock the door of your house while you try to start learning this time, turn on the computer, do not take the coffee or smoking, it's dangerous... and 'because this is just brief, boum boum boum! Done'...!!! Lmao!


    Third step

    Sotosop opened as usual, not Corel, but if you guys insist to open Corel, that's quitely OK, but you're just steare at it not more?!?!??! Heheheh... Not more...!!!


    Fourth step

    Open an image (any pictures are allowed, except the porn stuffs, lmao!). Use the image in small size.. Go Go Go . . . ! With no guidance (image) now i show you here... this kinda blind tutorial or something... hahahahha... the one and only...


    Fifth step

    Create a new layer above your image layer. Fill the foreground with dark Gray, use the Paint Bucket Tool (G), I take the color #5a5a5a, it's what so important what the feel of the dark when it rains, OK.


    Sixth step

    Select Filter> Noise> Add Noise. Leave the default, click OK. Then select Filter> Blur> Motion Blur, use the power of your imagination to set the parimeter... OK I use Angle -51, Distance 10 px


    Seventh step

    Change Blending into Overlay option (the default Normal, of course). Lower Opacity from 100% to 48%


    Eighth step

    Select Image> adjustment> Level approximately until the rain came down on the current image (looks like). OK.


    Ninth step

    Lift your buttocks to the kitchen, we can get the coffee because the work is.............(drummrolls)............finished... ehhehehehh ... Why? What with the tutorial blind us this time? Temen-temen dapet what I mean?
