Tutorial: Creating a bloody splatter texture
Open a new file, any size. I used 377 × 233 px. Fill the background with #d0d0d0.
Use the Airbrush-Tool and use the brush named “Sparks”. It is the yeloow one.
Add a new empty layer and paint around randomly. It is important that the sparks overlay each other sometimes.
Now click the “lock transparency” icon in the layers dialog. This option is found right above the transparency-changer.
Choose a new color as foreground-color: #680000.
- Edit / Fill FG-Color.
Everything should now be in a slight dark red.
Now please deactivate the “lock transparency”-option again.
Go to Colors / Curves, choose “Alpha” as channel (top left). Apply the curve as seen on the picture.
After that you’re done ;)
