PostSubject: [-Graphics-] Making a Backdrop   Wed Jul 27, 2011 3:17 am



Hai guise! Again, again. While I was bored to death, I thought of an idea on making a backdrop tutorial. This time, it's just forest. Yes, forest. Hope you guys like it. And I almost forgot, I am using Photoshop for this. So it may not apply to other image-editing programs.
Beware of sucky explanation

Just follow the steps and you'll probably create your one awesome backdrop! Let's start shall we?

-Step 1-
Of course, we'll need to map out the floor first. My desired backdrop size would be the regular 544x416 size. (Credits to COAD tileset btw)
Spoiler:
 

-Step 2-
After that, we will distort the image. (CTRL + T) Distort it until it looks like a floor to you.
Spoiler:
 

-Step 3-
Now we apply a Gradient Overlay on your floor and set its layer mode to Overlay. Settings seen below.
Spoiler:
 

-Step 4-
We will now add a background. Any background is fine. Make sure it is behind the floor layer.
Spoiler:
 

-Step 5-
Make a new layer and click Apply Image. (Image > Apply Image) It can be seen in the navigation bar. (It's for placing the Lens Flare)
Spoiler:
 

-Step 6-
Now we'll add the sun. Click Lens Flare (Filter > Render > Lens Flare). Set until satisfied.
Spoiler:
 

-Step 7-
Just add in some more details to your backdrop and you're done! (Make sure your actors are placed on the right coordinates though.
Spoiler:
 

And we're done! :) If you still want to add more effects, make sure to experiment! >:3 I-M-A-G-I-N-A-T-I-O-N *rainbowswoosh* +_+

I hope this helped you guys and I also hope my explaining wasn't that bad. 3: Regardless of that, happy backdrop making! XD

Thanks for making these. They will be great for beginners learning to do graphics.

Thanks guys, do remember that you'll have to set up your actor coordinates before you can fully use your custom backdrop.
