That's the current one I just finished. Thanks again to Tony for doing the Illustrator stuff for me!

If this metal thingy is so un-usual, do you (to all) think it's worth a tutorial?

I'll be reading it. It's a winner in my books. I can't wait to see your step by step instructions on metalacizing. (is that a word?)

Thumbs down Metal FX

Hiya, the best way in my opinion to create a metal FX background is to do this;
Create a new document and give it a black - to white - to black gradient background (at a 45 degree angle on the page). Say top left to bottom right.

In filters, give it loads of monochromatic noise so it goes all speckly and rough.

Then in filters blur got to motion blur and blur the background at the same angle as the gradient with the noise.

You should end up with a really neat effect like brushed steel.
The double cool thing with this is that you can change the colour of the blend to mimic chrome, brass etc. And you can also cut this inside shapes to make them look like they're made out of whatever steely material you want!

patrick,

looks like metal to me, but how did you get all that metal into your monitor?
