    Gloop pen sticker (new image pg 3)

    I was playing around with the rabbit hole stuff with the black background and I happen to try the gloop pen on it and thought it really looked good on black. Having been obsessed with making stickers for two months I thought why not try it. I think I may have a new obsession, gloop pen stickers.

    Thanks Jean!

    I made the top one with the symmetry tool set for rotation with 3 segments. I did a simple S curve to the middle. This one I did the same thing then I used the magic wand to select the individual s curves and changed the colors with the "Adjust Layer Color" from the Edit menu. I then duplicated the layer. One of the layers I blurred enough to give it a little glow. I have the sticker Spray Variation Hue set to about 14% Sequence.

    Thanks Graham!

    The stickers themselves look fine, just try them on a different background, the orange doesn't give the right contrast, it washes out your colors. Black seems the best for showing off the gloop pen transparency. They absolutely glow. If you must have orange, try a darker or lighter shade.

    Try adjusting the shadow for the sticker, I had mine set at 7% radius, 21% Opacity, X Position 7px, and Y position 9px. Make sure you have the Canvas lighting checked in the canvas settings. Try reducing the flow rate for the sticker or the amount of rotation. It will allow for the transparency to show through. Just keep playing with all the settings to see what you get. There can be dramatic changes to the very same sticker.

    Here is my sticker on an orange background with no shadow. There isn't enough contrast to make it stand out.

    Thanks coops! The black background mades all the difference. If I hadn't be trying to do a rabbit hole image I might never have tried it.

    Thanks for the help but i'm not sure where to find the setting your talking about (Try adjusting the shadow for the sticker, I had mine set at 7% radius, 21% Opacity, X Position 7px, and Y position 9px. Make sure you have the Canvas lighting checked in the canvas settings. Try reducing the flow rate for the sticker or the amount of rotation. It will allow for the transparency to show through.

    Graham here are where you can find the settings I was referring to. I hope this helps. I know how frustrating it can be when someone takes about changing something and you don't know where to find it.
