And another new art day.
I made my last two Tumblr backgrounds myself using a mix of photoshop patterns and brushes. has a fabulous set of nebula brushes and I love using them.
Anyways. I had found this fantastic Tumblr theme but I found the background thoroughly boring. Through hours of experimentation I created something I was immensely happy with.
It fit the original color scheme of the Tumblr theme I was using and it suited me.
Earlier today I somehow started thinking. I forget what originally got the idea stuck in my mind. I was taken with the idea of using photoshop to try to create this color. A color any Terry Pratchett fan should know.
Octarine (the color of magic) is described as being a fluorescent yellow-green purple. Magic is often represented by puffs of smoke. Nebula brushes make fantastically sparkly clouds of smoke.
Anyways, I liked these two backgrounds so much and I was so happy with both of them that I thought I'd share them. I originally made them a very large (I think widescreen) wallpaper size so I uploaded them as wallpapers but you are free to use them however you want (just credit me where appropriate! Which is for any use other than wallpaper).
