DID Unit 4: Tutorials and Project

  1. 1. digital illustration + design project 4: CGI effects plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design 1
  2. 2. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials FIREBALL Step-By-Step Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Open a 11” x 8.5” background – 200 PX FILTER --> RENDER --> CLOUDS Repeat three (3) times FILTER REDNERDIFFERENCE CLOUDS Repeat three (3) times FILTER --> RENDER --> LIGHTING EFFECTS --> OMNI, to taste 7. DUPLICATE LAYER, FLIP HORIZONTAL, set LAYER MODE to SOFT LIGHT 8. DUPLICATE LAYER, FLIP VERTICAL, set LAYER MODE to SOFT LIGHT 9. TINT each layer with Orange, Yellow & Reds to taste 10. Complete for all LAYERS except BACKGROUND LAYER: FILTER --> BRUSHTROKES --> INK OUTLINES to taste 11. BACKGROUND LAYER --> FILTER --> BLUR --> GAUSSIAN plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  3. 3. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials Lightning Step-By-Step Procedure 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. Open a 11” x 8.5” background – 200 PX Create a BLANK LAYER and fill with BLACK (000000) Create a BLANK LAYER and place a white line across it, using the RECTANGULAR MARQUEE TOOL and a WHITE FILL BUCKET (this will make a line) FILTER  LIQUIFY  drag mouse over line to create waves Repeat the above process several times and DUPLICATE some LAYERS, EDIT  TRANSFORM  FLIP HORIZONTAL or FLIP VERTICAL, or a combination of both Return to the first line LAYER you created, LAYER  LAYER STYLE  OUTER GLOW  change color to 036EF5 and then adjust settings to taste COPY LAYER STYLE and apply to all LAYERS plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  4. 4. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials FIRE Step-By-Step Procedure 1. Open a 14” x 11” background – 200 PX 2. Use the GRADIENT TOOL to create a blend of black, white and gray with a white highlight down the center (REFLECTED GRADIENT selection) 3. After the first gradient is laid down, go up to the gradient tool menu and select the MODE – change to DIFFERENCE 4. Draw gradients over the original, over and over again keeping most of them vertical and some slightly skewed 5. LABEL this LAYER “BLAST” 6. DUPLICATE “BLAST”: FILTER --> STYLIZE --> FIND EDGES, set MODE to OVERLAY 7. DUPLICATE “BLAST”: EDIT --> TRANSFORM --> FLIP HORIZONTAL and then set MODE to OVERLAY 8. DUPLICATE “BLAST”: EDIT --> TRANFORM --> FLIP VERTICAL, then EDIT --> TRANFORM --> FLIP HORIZONTAL, then set MODE to LINEAR DODGE and at 50% OPACITY, then FILTER --> STYLIZE --> FIND EDGES, then EDIT --> FADE FIND EDGES --> 50% 9. TINT each LAYER (including original LAYER) with ORANGE, YELLOW & RED to taste 10. FILTER --> RENDER --> LIGHTING EFFECTS --> DEFAULT, use the lighting effects to black out the sides of the image and highlight the center flames – repeat for each LAYER 11. Go to the ORIGINAL BLAST LAYER 12. TOOLS --> SMUDGE TOOL 50% - 75% --> set to a ASSORTED BRUSHES, grab the third brush from the bottom (ZIGZAG) and set to 120 – 170 pixels (to taste) 13. SMUDGE the flames on the outside edge only to create flames 14. REPEAT for each LAYER plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  5. 5. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials PLANET Step-By-Step Procedure 1. Open a 8” x 8” 200 PX background 2. Change the FOREGROUND and BACKGROUND colors to light and dark gray, one warm and one cool 3. FILTER  RENDER CLOUDS 4. FILTER  BLUR  GAUS. BLUR 5 5. Go to WINDOW  CHANNELS 6. Create a NEW CHANNEL (a NEW LAYER) 7. FILTER  RENDER  DIFFERENCE CLOUDS x 20 8. Close ALPHA CHANNELS and then click on your LAYER 9. FILTER  RENDER  LIGHTING EFFECTS  use these settings: Light Type: Spotlight | Intensity: 60 | Focus: 70 Light Colour: #FFFFFF | Gloss: -100 | Material: +50 Exposure: -10 | Ambience: +5| Texture Channel: Alpha1  (this is why we created the ALPHA channel) Height: +100 10. Using the ELLIPTICAL MARQUEE and the SHIFT KEY draw a perfect circle selection somewhere in the bottom left 11. EDIT COPY 12. NEW LAYER  FILL BUCKET BLACK 13. EDIT PASTE, then hold CTRL and CLICK on the picture of the LAYER (in the LAYER menu) with the SKIN on it 14. FILTER  DISTORT  SPHEREIZE 100 15. DO NOT DESELECT (if you have; CTRL click the LAYER) 16. DUPLICATE planet LAYER, RENDER  DISTORT  SPHEREIZE, then change LAYER to MULTIPLY 17. MERGE DOWN 18. DUPLICATE LAYER, the WORLD that is underneath, FILTER  BLUR  GAUSSIAN BLUR 40 19. CREATE a NEW LAYER then CTRL click the WORLD 20. FILL BUCKET BLACK and then DESELECT 21. FILTER  BLUR  GAUSSIAN BLUR 50 22. Use the ARROW (MOVE) to move the “eclipse” upward 23. Add a LENS FLARE to the solid black LAYER plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  6. 6. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials COMET Step-By-Step Procedure 1. Open a 8” x 8” background – 200 PX 2. NEW LAYER, FILL BUCKET black (000000) 3. FILTER  RENDER  LENS FLARE  50-300mm Zoom, REPEAT filter to enhance color 4. FILTER  BLUR  RADIAL BLUR  100, ZOOM, GOOD, raise crosshairs to corner of window 5. DUPLICATE LAYER  MODE Color Dodge 6. REPEAT RADIAL BLUR for DUPLICATE LAYER 7. On DUPLICATE LAYER, FILTER  LIQUIFY, use this tool to give a comet a “tail” 8. BACKGROUND LAYER  FILTER  RENDER  LENS FLARE, create a second LENS FLARE in the top left corner to taste 9. NEW LAYER, use a circle paintbrush to create random dots (make sure to vary sizes, I use DROPSHADOW brushes) 10. FILTER  BLUR  RADIAL BLUR, 75, ZOOM, GOOD, raise crosshairs to corner of window, REPEAT FILTER plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  7. 7. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials NOVA Step-By-Step Procedure 1. Open a 8” x 8” background – 200 PX 2. FILL BUCKET solid black (000000) 3. FILTER  RENDER  CLOUDS x3 (three times) 4. FILTER  PIXELATE  MEZZOTINT  SHORT STROKES 5. FILTER  BLUR  RADIAL BLUR  ZOOM, BEST – make sure to center the crosshairs and then REPEAT 6. FILTER  DISTORT  TWIRL  +120 7. DUPLICATE  FILTER  DISTORT  TWIRL  -180, set LAYER to LIGHTEN MODE 8. COLOR BALANCE both LAYERS to taste 9. FLATTEN IMAGE plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  8. 8. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials WARP Step-By-Step Procedure 1. Open a 8” x 8” background – 200 PX 2. NEW LAYER  FILL BUCKET BLACK 3. FILTER  RENDER  CLOUDS/DIFFERENCE CLOUDS (generate as many as you like to taste) 4. FILTER  BLUR  RADIAL  ZOOM, GOOD, 80 5. FILTER  BLUR  RADIAL  ZOOM, BEST, 40 6. IMAGE  ADJUSTMENTS  AUTO LEVELS 7. IMAGE  ADJUSTMENTS  COLOR BALANCE too taste plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  9. 9. digital illustration + design CGI Effects Tutorials PLASMA Step-By-Step Procedure 1. Open a 8” x 8” background – 200 PX 2. NEW LAYER  FILL BUCKET black 3. RENDER  LENS FLARE  50-300mm Zoom  REPEAT three times scattered throughout page 4. FILTER  SKETCH  CHROME  DETAIL 6, SMOOTH 4 5. COLOR BALANCE  BLUE TINT 6. DUPLICATE LAYER x2 (two times)  CHANGE MODES to LIGHTEN & OVERLAY (one for each new layer) 7. On the LIGHTEN LAYER  FILTER  DISTORTION  WAVE (complete with settings to taste) 8. MERGE LAYERS, DUPLICATE, EDIT  IMAGE  FLIP HORIZONTAL, LAYER MODE  LIGHTEN 9. Continue to DUPLICATE LAYERS and change directions: ROTATE 90° CW, ROTATE 90° CWW, FLIP HORIZTONAL, FLIP VERTICAL  to taste plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
  10. 10. digital illustration + design CGI Effects: YOUR PROJECT CREATE A TUTORIAL Your project is to create a tutorial of your own. In this tutorial, you should explain how to create a CGI effect. Use the tutorials you have done in class as a starting point. Copying a tutorial from the internet is not allowed. You may use internet tutorials to help you, but you should change them so that they are you have created something new, all on your own! TIPS: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. When experimenting, take notes. Write down the steps you use to create certain effects. Use the PRINT SCREEN function to capture screenshots as you work Paste these into a PPT Keep a desired outcome in mind – what are you trying to create? Teach someone! Make sure they can follow your “recipe”. The tutorial should have at least 10 STEPS. What to turn in? 1. Your tutorial with 10 steps (minimum) 2. Your PPT with screenshots 3. Your final image plainfield central – mr. lawler art + design
