How did I make this?
OK, should be pretty funny for you guys. New to GIMP, very impressed with the capabilities, although the learning curve has been very steep!

So, I just wanted to make an interesting block and played around for awhile. I'm happy with the attached block, but went to make a similar one and can't figure out what I ultimately did to create it!

I figured out how to modify this for my needs, but it's killing me I can't replicate it.

So if anyone can tell what I did, please fill me in...

RE: How did I make this?
Hmmm

I tried

"Color, dark blue"

Duplicate/copy that layer
Then
Apply cloud or "solid noise" effect

"Filters > Render > differential clouds"

Maybe add some blur "Filters > blur > Guassian blur..."

Then change the layer mode to "Darken only"

Right-click layer "Flatten image"

Then apply a black border

"Filters > Decor > Add border..."
Settings :
Border x: 12
border y: 12
Border color: [black]
Delta value on color: 25

Next the light on the top right:

Flatten image again then
"Filters > Light and shadow > Lighting effects..."
Settings:
Check []interactive
bring blue dot to top right & adjust "distance:" to 0.398
(this part might be a little tricky to get just right, it will be a little faded, just get the angle right, the next part will fix that.)

With the "Lighting effects" window still open, click the "Light" tab
-Then adjust the "intensity:" to 2.20 then BAM click ok your done!

@iForStyle007 looks great. You put some effort into that, thanks!

I still dunno if that's how I did it, but it looks right!

No problem ^^

haha, sorry for the blown up scale though, I have that bad habbit when I draw too, everything looks like it was put under a magnifying glass.

But if you were to scale it down in your browser ctrl+ "-" in chrome, you'll see it looks more similar. ctrl + "0" (zero) to reset the view.

But you can probably make the blue part at that my scale(with border & texture/blur), then before adding the light/shine, scale it down with the scale Scale tool.

Good luck in whatever you try.
