Tutorial: Using Layer Masks To 'Erase' Sections of an Image [29 Oct 2005|07:09pm]

Okay, I promised that I would do a tutorial on blending, but as there is already one out there (by 45caliber_icons), I thought I would do something different.

Please note that the following tutorial does contain quite a few images, and it may take a while to load. But if you're unafraid of waiting (or are lucky enough to have Broadband) go right ahead!

Sometimes when making sigtags, I end up with a boring background, like with this image of Amber Cureen off Shortland Street:

As you can agree, it does look pretty boring, just her and the (cloned) wall. So, I'm going to be teaching you how to go from something like that, to something a little bit more exciting. Like this:

Text Background Tutorial [26 Oct 2005|02:31pm]

[ mood | Accomplished ]

Hey, my first attempt at a tutorial. It's a technique I use often when making sigtags for RPGs, and the like. Most people tend to ask how they put a border around their text, but I do something slightly different. It's pretty simple, once you get the hand of it, but it's quite a neat effect, in my opinion.

So here goes! How to get the following affect using GIMP 2.2!

I've also made some large brushes, just for filling in selections or large-scale erasing. Just squares of different sizes (80, 100, 125, 150, 200 and 300 pixels). Download brushes.

Goblet of Fire Icons (8 With More To Come) [02 Oct 2005|03:15pm]

Okay, I've been working on some icons, and I wanted to get them up asap, so the numbers here will be growing. No specific characters this time, but mainly one style. They're pretty simple, for the most part, as opposed to an overload of colour whatever I have done in previous posts.
Rules are simple: comment and credit icon_heap.

Affiliates + Linkage [13 Sep 2005|10:32am]

Okay, so basically, if you want to affiliate with the icon_heap just answer to this post, providing a link to the journal (if it's separate).
If I say yes, I'll need a 100x35 button, just so you know. I'll get mine up in a few hours.
I'm looking for people with similar interests, so X-Men, Harry Potter and people who use GIMP, though this may change. Just so you know.
Also, here are some link buttons for you to use. More will be coming soon.
