mmm yes Raja, the wood are easy to acomplish, the curtains requires more spare time to make them realistic.... but the base is on the gradients as blue said.


For the wood a noisy texture, supposing a pattern fill > wood 3 plus a motion blur makes a good effect.

Bliznakov has some nice tutorials around that, check it out here:
http://designpicnic....b-atelier/?p=47


For the curtains take in consideration this tutorial about making the curtain base. You would really need it for getting better effects

http://www.heathrowe...uts/curtain.asp


After finish that the little big problem is to distort the curtains.. like the picture above. FW doesnt have enough distort tools and I beg for them in next releases. But anyway you can use this free filter to make a sort of sphere distort.

http://punkinstuff.t.../almathera.html

The filter I talk is "A warper", the last one.

Try some attempts with the filter until you feel satisfied, and you got a nice curtain effect.



This is what I got in 30 min. of wasting time... I think is not that hard.

You need to select the gradient tool for bitmaps, create an empty bitmap from the layers panel and then choose the gradient tool, don't use it in a path or will fill the entire shape B)


Used FW Raja of course the forum is about FW :evil:

This is the source file, although you will see almost only flatenned bitmaps

here's an attempt to make the curtains using the fold gradient, and some different filters.....no plugins required (but then it doesn't look as good as lian's...but maybe someone could do it better):

It's ok Raja, thought is not much else to say. Let me find some time to do it :)

----

It's a nice idea Mike, gave me some ideas indeed over the curtain. (check the attach)

Seems that I overburned the borders to simulate the shadows.. but that is the idea at least.

Right - I was just about to post it and you were faster :) Scallop it is!

While we were discussing this, I actually learned quite a bit about seashells. This is where I found the shapes.

Bravo! It is Salvador Dali's eyes. I took them from this picture. The long face in the oyster shell reminded me of him. My favorite artist of all times!

sure....umm....first, i would download the image. it's a .png, so you can open it in FW and look at the different 'live effects' and blend modes and such. as for the gradient, i just played around with positioning the gradient until i got something that worked for curtains.

play around with it and let me know if there's something you dont get.

good luck!
