Pearl necklace mini tutorial

Post#1 by RJKD » 30 Oct 2017, 12:29


This is just to give an idea as to how to achieve perspective with a necklace (I'm sure there sure many other ways of achieving such an outcome). Also not all brushes will respond so well with this method, I hope it at least helps a little.

How I created a simple pearl necklace

I made a pearl brush (not great, however attached).
Opened my necklace stand in Gimp and created a path the shape of HALF of the necklace (see example in xcf attached).
Set RJKD pearl brush (or brush you make) size 40 px, spacing 100 Dynamics – velocity tapering.
New layer - stroke path (set to Stroke with a paint tool – brush and check emulate brush dynamics).
Duplicate layer 4 times, turn off background layer (stand) – merge visible layers.
Erase back of necklace to collar line
Duplicate layer and flip horizontally.
Line up layers as required (may be worth zooming in to get good align).

Thank you so much Richard, it's starting to make more sense now!! Still needs lots of practice, I think I understand more visually, if I can see it and put it with the instruction I understand more clearly. I gave your wonderful mini tutorial a shot and while still not up to the jewelry shop status just yet I will keep trying!! Thank you again my friend!!
