I need help with a few certain effects...not sure where else to look.
You see, I'm trying to do a parody of this album cover: http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-a...801_n.jpg. I've got the characters drawn in, but I need help in getting that rainy effect, drawing in clouds, and getting the glow of the moon to sort of penetrate the clouds randomly. If someone can help me, that'd really be great. These have had me stumped for a while now.

Rain:
  • Add layer filled with white
  • Files/Noise/HSV noise, push saturation to 50 or so
  • Threshold tool: by changing the threshold you can adjust the density of noise pixels. Pick a value that keeps very few pixels.
  • Filter/Blur/Motion blur: adjust angle & length
  • Set the layer to "Mulltiply" mode (dark rain) or divide mode (light rain)

Clouds: experiment with Filters/Render/Clouds/Fog.This generates partially transparent clouds so the moon glow through them is sort of given.

Thanks, this is fantastic. The only things I have trouble finding are the "Muiltiply" mode, which I'm not sure where to look, and the "Fog" tool, which isn't even in the place you said it would be. Any ideas?

Fog: standard filter: http://manual.gimp.org/en/python-fu-foggify.html:

If you don't find it there, your Gimp installation is hosed, or you are using a non-standard version...

Multiply/Divide mode: at the top of the "Layers" dialog (applies to the selected layer):

PS: On the other hand, the HSV Noise generator is on "Filters/Noise/HSV noise" and not "Files/Noise/HSV noise"

Alright, never mind. I got it fixed, and finished the rest of the picture. Thanks a lot for your help! Big Grin
