Default Paint.NET Tutorial: Space Explosions!

If any of you use the mighty PDN (http://www.getpaint.net) You might appreciate this.

Step 1. Paint your canvas solid black.

Step 2. Add noise intensity 100, color saturation 0 and coverage 2.

Step 3. Use rotate/zoom to zoom in 3 times.

You should have this


Step 4. Add a new layer.

Step 5. Set your primary color to FF8000 and your secondary color to transparent.

Step 6. Make a radial gradient where you want your explosion to be.

You should have this


Step 7. Add noise, same settings as before but with coverage of 100.

Step 8. Zoom blur at 100, remember to set the centre to the same as the centre of the gradient.

You now have a passable explosion. You can stop now, or continue for best results.

Step 9. Duplicate the explosion layer.

Step 10. Set the duplicate’s opacity to 128 and the blend mode to multiply.

Step 11. Duplicate the explosion layer 1 more time.

Step 12. Use the “Brightness/Contrast” effect. Set the contrast to 100.

Step 13. Set the blend mode to multiply.

You should have this


Step 14. Make a new layer.

Step 15. On the new layer, make a small white (filled in) circle.

Step 16. Use zoom blur at 100 five times.

Step 17. Move the glow layer down so it is just above the background.

DONE! You should now have this:

The classic PDN noob question! No offense, but for a second I thought I was on the wrong forum! Anyway, you can restore the color window by going into the window menu and click reset window locations. For the 3Dish station, your best bet is to download the plugin "Shape 3D" which is stickied in the plugins forum of the official PDN forum. If you get a chance, you should also dowload "Madjik All Plugins" "Pyrochild Plugin Pack" and "Ed Harvey Effects".
