I don't understand the first step. do i paint on the canvas and how do i make it visible if it's invisible

Yup. Paint on your canvas.
Then in the layer settings change it to "Linear Dodge (Add)". Or you can just use a different colour altogether.

Just the smudge tool! For Photoshop at least.
Settings: hard brush, any size (situational), 72%/90% strength.

Thanks! :) You're the first person to show me a result! Adding your own touch to it makes it personal, so making it your own and not exactly like the tutorial's shows that you're improving ;)

If you're using a mouse then you might want to click at the point where the 'circle/crosshair thing' is on the edge of the line that you're trying to make the swirl. Tablet, make sure you have pen pressure on.

Superb tutorial. Is what I could do the French translation for a site? (I would send you of course)
Reply

FSDragonXG Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2014
Hmm, a french translation. You can translate it as long as the credit is given back to me (you should also put the credits in the description of this in as well). I will send you some more details via note. :)

That's quite a nice tutorial, Josh!
Must have taken quite a lot of time making it, right? (Nevertheless, I should make a new one soon, as well. :D )
There are a lot of smudge tuts on DA but this one is very detailed and shows the reader how to make a smudge step by step, so you did a good job, without doubt. (:

Same here! I think that's a normal thing when it comes to smudging. :D

Do you actually create the artwork yourself? or just the backgrounds?
Reply
:iconfsdragonxg:
FSDragonXG Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
The artwork, no. It belongs to the original artists. IN WHICH I SHOULD REALLY POST THAT (then again I don't know who some of the original artists are...)... The backgrounds, yes.

AaronQuinn Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Ah I suggest not using the original artwork unless you know the artist to credit, might get in trouble. Just a heads up.

People will always use renders and they will never be credited with them being in packs. They are also never claimed to be their own, so that's a plus. So please, can you quit coming onto Gfx and being the annoying kid that bitches about renders? Thanks.
Reply
:iconfsdragonxg:
FSDragonXG Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2014
Yeah :( too bad the people who render the art doesn't post the place where they got it from (a majority of them at least), or the original artist.
