I’m going to show you an example of how to use the cloud brush Petals 2, released in June 2020!

I’ll explain how to use it like the background of this illustration.
(I used Mediban Paint for PC.)

①First of all, paint the background black.

I painted the background black. Fill it so black that it’s almost black.

②Create a new layer on top of the blackened background layer and set the layer blend to “Add & Glow”.

③Set the brush color to white and sprinkle 2 brush petal brushes on it.

④Duplicate the layer you just painted petals on (Layer < Duplicate in the menu bar) and select the layer at the bottom.

⑤Select [Gaussian Blur] from [Filter] on the menu bar.

As a result of using Gaussian Blur, the result is a fluffier look than before, like this!

I like this fluffy vibe when I applied the Gauss blur to the addition and emission, which is three times the level of food.
I got excited again.

By the way, I set the value of Gaussian Blur to 10 this time.
(Please adjust it to your liking.)

⑥One more step. Use the Chromatic Aberration filter to make the petals look more impressive.
First, merge all layers once (in the menu bar, under “Layers” < “Merge All Layers)

⑦Next, select the [Chromatic Aberration/RGB Shift] filter from the [Filter] menu in the menu bar.

In this case, I set it to 5 for both the X and Y axis.


If you zoom in, it’s easy to change the color of the petals, but by using a chromatic aberration filter, the petals, which were previously monotone, are now colored differently, creating a magical effect!

That’s all.
How was your experience with the Petal 2 Brush!
Please try to use it in various ways by applying it here.
