We will make wings like that, use Smudge tool freely to shape your wings as you wish .
ADDED: If you don´t have Paintbrush option in your Smudge tool, use the option in Smudge tool´s popup window left corner "Add / Remove brushes" and try with own paint splatter png file or brush. If you don´t have own brush here is something I made you can try with:
I think I got both soft brush and paintbrush with Smudge plugin, it was a while ago so I am not sure, let me see if i can find some info or maybe someone else can check if they have paintbrush too by default.
Goonie, there is a little drop down box beside the "soft brush" from there you can choose the "paintbrush" & it looks like there is an option to add/remove brushes but I don't know how. I have never been able to us the custom brushes anyway.
I know, I`ve tried clicking on that but there is no Paintbrush, just the option to add/remove more brushes. Which is why I thought Ella had added hers. Maybe I`ll try re-installing the plug in and see what happens.
edit - I`ve completely re-installed all of Pyro`s plug ins with the very latest available (I think I was up to date but I did it anyway) but there is still only the one brush in Smudge. So Ella must have installed hers separately.
First, I am so sorry for being absent for the last 3 weeks or so.
And secondly, Ella very good tutorial, with great result but you forgot to mention "also you have to have an artist hand movement" because I tried it but couldn't get the smudging part as smooth as your result, have you by any chance used a tablet pc or you did that just using a regular mouse?
BTW, Goonie, that "Paintbrush" is built-in in the old version of the Smudge plugin if I am not mistaken, because I still have it in the plugins list in the previous versions of PDN but it doesn't show in the smudge folder nor in the MiniBrush folder. If you like to have the older version of the smudge (Which is V 3.0.3742) I can send it to you, or post it here if it is legal to do that.
EDIT, never mind goonie I just red your reply in the official board to pyro.
Welshy, that is fantastic, I do remember that (or similar) very well.
