Create a new layer, because you’d better leave the background empty.

We will be filling the layer area with gradients, so pick a gradient. I’ve decided to use a dark blue to dark red, and in the middle we have some white too.

Note the layer setting. The layer mode is Pin Light.

I really don???t think that you will be able to match my form, but try to do some gradient filling and understand how the Pin light settings effect the whole process.



So I???ve came over with this very shape.

It’s beautiful, don’t you think? It’s all done with only ONE tool.



I was also searching for the filter to apply to my form. First i wanted to sharpen my image because I think it has mush blur, but then I???ve decided to apply Paint Daubs (artistic) filter.

Now the next stage of the tutorial, create a new layer, turn OFF the FORM layer, the one that has our basic shape.



Chose a simple round rough brush and set the spacing to about 140%.

Make a line holding the shift key, so the line to be straight.

Now in some minutes we will use a displace filter, so we need a map for this filter. We will make a map out of the shape we’ve done in the beginning.



First create a Hue/Saturation layer bringing the saturation to 0.
