Creating Segmented Pipeson July 25, 2012 at 5:34 am
In this tutorial i will show you how to create segmented pipes in Gimp-2.8.1.
Make sure fg to bg is selected and linear for gradient style or type.
Hold down the ctrl key and start the gradient just to the
left of the selection ending just to the right of the selection.
It should look like this.
Merge the top layer down
make it invisible
Rotate the segment until it looks something like this. About 13 degrees.
Repeat this about 14 times making sure to duplicate the ORIGINAL Conduit layer
and rotating it each time.Do NOT duplicate the duplicated layers and rotate them.
Always duplicate the original for quality.
Create a new layer and name it shadows.
Right click the visible layer and select alpha to selection.
Select the shadows layer.
That gives us our kind of 3-D look so it pops out.
make a new layer and call this layer hi-lites
Change the fg color to white.
Use a size 18-20 circle soft brush paint on the inside of the pipe like this.
