“THAT GALAXY PATTERN” tutorial (I honestly don’t know what to call it…it is not much of a pattern)
This is for the anon who wanted to know how I created that “galaxy pattern” in my Carlos & Cecil piece.
This is the first time I’ve ever written a tutorial so forgive me if I butchered anything up. Just send me an ‘ask’ if you need further clarifications.
OKAY, let’s get to down to business, peeps.
1.) Start with a base color. Try experiment with different base colors.
2.) Create a new layer. Select the watercolor tool. Paint in small circular motions. Vary the pressure and brush sizes. Experiment with colors! I don’t exactly remember what I used for my original piece.
3.) Set the layer to screen.
4.) Create a new layer. Set layer to overlay. Using a beige or something within that vicinity, repeat what u did in step 2.
5.) Use a dust spot texture from ICouldntThinkOfAName and set it to overlay.
Yaaay. You’re done!
Extra: play with the levels + soften the edges. Woooaaat.
Thanks for reading! I hope it wasn’t too terribly difficult to follow.
