Magic Ball Tutorial by Kid-Apocalypse Magic Ball Tutorial by Kid-Apocalypse
I made this for my own reference so I wouldn't forget how to do this, but I put it up here in case any other Painter users might like to see how I paint magic balls. Took a lot of messing around to figure out how to make it look like water instead of blue fire, but I think I managed. It's ultimately for my brother, and he's pleased so far; that's all I need. :D

Made with and in mind of: Corel Painter IX, though it'll probably be the same in older and newer versions of Painter, and with some creative free thought, bits could apply to Photoshop.

EDIT: If you don't plan on having a white background, then you'll probably want to turn on"Preserve Transparency" for the layer with the magic ball when you get to step 5. I haven't tried that yet, but given what I understand about Painter, it'll work.

EDIT2: Never mind. Finish the pic COMPLETELY, do steps 1-4, then click "Pick up underlying color" and proceed with 5 and/or 6 as desired.

The sad thing is, I need this every time I paint 'em. ^^;

Not sad... it may seem simple to make chocolate-chip cookies from scratch, but I still need to follow the recipe every time.

That is a good point. But is it still relevant when you're the one who wrote the recipe?

Which also means that I should play around with Photoshop. :D Maybe I can try to figure out how to do this with it. Some things still apply, though some steps'd have to be taken out, and it'd probably have to be all on the same layer.....

Hardest thing is that this is basically a painting medium used, and Photoshop doesn't have a dumbTallyobvious way to do that. Or does it?

Thanks. :D I hope it's useful to someone. Certainly has been for me. Though my end result of this tutorial looks more like wind than water....
