Ok, it is incredibly simple. Filter-Light shadow-Supernova + gradient flare + Glass tile

We all know that... it just doesn't go particularly well with almost any render. :/

Yarbone
01-04-2009, 08:01 PM

It's a really cool effect i found out.

Just take a plasma cloud,then blur> pixelize, then bump map the plasma layer. (Yes you can bump map a layer with its self). And voila you got a cool block tech thingy. :D

I only think the edges look a bit choppy... :/

Just save it as .xcf AND as a .jpg. Just so you always have a file where you can change things.

Gradient fill > Difference > click a few times to get lots of angles and stuff of different. gradients.

Then change the colour.

Cos I'm on a mac, with the version of GIMP I have you just can't.
I did some research into that. Now I've got a solution

"Okay, first of all once you've downloaded all your brushes put them all into the same folder. For example mine is on my desktop named "Gimp brushes."
Then you go into GIMP, File>references. Down the bottom on the options in Preferences there will be the option "Folders". Click the little arrow symbol on the left of this to expand. Click the "Brushes" option and then you just add your folder with all the brushes into the directory.

Hope it helps."

To install on a mac:

Right click Gimp, select "Show Package Contents", then to the following directory: /Contents/Resources/share/gimp/2.0/brushes/.

Thats it! Just drop it into the "brushes" directory, and you done.

UUuuuuh I think that ratchet 'n clank sig is pretty cool although i would stick with just one single picture in the sig.

The Ratchet and Clank one is good, however, animation is really best to avoid in sigs, especially if you're doing it like you've got going there.

Animation is ok, as long as you are applying a neat effect to the same sig. For instance, mine flashes to a gradient of the same sig every few seconds. You want to avoid it going to a completely new sig.

My problem with planetrenders is the black backgrounds, often the render has black in it, or on the outside, which makes things very tricky.
