Awesome Fire Effect

Well here goes my first one and many to follow:

a brush you will need: X Brush Set 5



first create an empty canvas, I picked a 310 px by 110 px canvas


Now select your paint bucket (G) and fill your canvas with black. After that we are going to add a radial gradient. Select the Gradient tool (G) (its hidden under the paint bucket tool) and now select the radial gradient option:


After you have selected the radial gradient option (1) click on (2) to create your own gradient! Now you will be able to choose one of the default gradients that come with photoshop, but you can also create your own gradient, which is what we will be doing.


You can use the pointers I marked with red to create your own gradient, click on the pointers allows you to change the colors. You can also add more pointers by simply clicking somewhere on the gradient. Now add your radial gradient onto your canvas. Place it where you want your render to be. To add the radial gradient you will need to define 2 points using your mouse. To do this click somewhere on your canvas to define the center of your gradient. Now drag with your mouse and release it somewhere to define the second point. The distance between your 2 points is the radius of your gradient


(your gradient probably looks a lot smoother, because I saved the picture in low quality)


Creating the fire effect


Ok now we have our background done its time to add in our render. Add your render and duplicate it 3 times (right click on the layer > duplicate), hide all render layers but one (to do this click on the little eye icon in front of the layer). You should now have 4 layers with your render on it, 3 are hidden from view, and 1 is still visible.


Render Effect #1


For our first effects wee are going to do a radial blur on the only visible render layer. Go to Filter > Blur > Radial Blur


Do another radial blur on the same layer if you want. When you are happy with your radial blur sharpen this layer (Filter > Render > Sharpen)


Render Effect #2


Now make one of your other hidden render layers visible, we are going to add a different effect to this one! Open the Smudge Tool and select the X brush (you can download it at the start of the tutorial). In the brush manager, use the following smudge settings:


Now smudge your render and set that layer to lineair dodge.



Render Effect #3


Make another render layer visible, time to add some nice effects to this layer as well! Ripple your render by going to Filter > Disort > Ripple


(f you don’t like your result, ripple your render a couple of times until you think it looks good, now set the

blending mode of this layer to color dodge.)



Adding the render


Now make your last render layer visible, this will be our render so we won’t add effects to this one, just leave it like this.


As you can see it is beginning to look good already, but the render stands out a bit to much from the background. It doesn’t look like its part of the background yet. To fix this lets give the render some “glow” to blend in with the background. Create a new layer (ctrl+N) and go to (Image > Apply Image) now go to (Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur) and use 3px as your setting. Set the blending mode of this layer to Lighten. As you can see the render now matches the background effects!


Creating flow


Our signature is beginning to look pretty good, so lets continue. Create a new layer and on add some white rectangles on it using the marquee tool (first make a selection than fill it with the paint bucket tool).


Now rotate these rectangles by going to edit > transform > rotate.


Go to Filter > Blur > Motion Blur



Now move this layer around until  its on a position where you like it. Set the blending mode of this layer to overlay, or any of the other blending modes. Just try one that looks good


duplicate this layer and use a polar distort filter. (Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates > Rectangular to polar) Place it near the other layer.


basically thats what i use for making awesome sigs i mean you will still need to add text and maybe a border but that's entirely up to you guys

    • chathandlers/chatAll.java   Replace:         final CreatureSay cs = new CreatureSay(activeChar.getObjectId(), type, activeChar.getName(), text); With:        final CreatureSay cs = new CreatureSay(activeChar.getObjectId(), type, activeChar.isGM() ? "[ADMIN]:" + activeChar.getName() : activeChar.getName(), text);    
    • hello can someone give me code when admin speaks in chat to say like [GM] or [ADMIN] before the name?
    • Our Alpha/Beta servers have been online for almost a full month with a selected few invited to play, however plebs like yourself don't have immediate access to the files to avoid people potentially decrypting and sharing them instead of actually playing on the server. You could of played the BETA by signing up / registering an account 😂 What's worse is, if you'd have bothered to actually make an account before shitposting, you'd actually see our server status in the corner indicating the server is online. Moonlight (LowRate) has also included custom quests, which are designed to take your character from level 1-40 (or higher if more testers seem to like the flow of it), progression is different than your typical L2 private server and rates don't exactly apply in the same way. Sunlight (HighRate) is an Instant 80 PVP and Events server, using only custom maps. There will be 1 "Main Town" for players to talk and prepare for the next round of PVP/Events -- with several custom maps to keep things interesting.
    • Sad news... Today our PayPal got disabled, so we can not accept it anymore, please use Crypto for now. At the moment, we do not think it will come back because we lost money. - VanitySMM.com Team
    • If your BETA is online you JUST turned it on. If BETA is online you would invite people to come play.. not signup. Only a retard advertises and invites people to sign up for an offline BETA server without rates.. Your server looks good. But right now, it is only a dream with a website.
