View Full Version : Request - Whirlpool Trancperancy

12-15-2010, 02:01 PM
I am on the hunt for a "Whirlpool" layer that has transparency so I can dump it on "what ever" coloured background and have my players go.. and say... Oh... Thats a whirl pool!

Yesterday I spent close to 30 minutes on here, Maptools, RPG Now & the power of google to no avail.

I can find them installed into maps... But just none that I can use on a generic map or one that I am making... This makes me sad. :( lol, Has anyone got something kicking around?

Did you try http://browse.deviantart.com/resources/applications/ I found several in the photoshop Brushes when I did a search for vortex there.

Can't resist a challenge, but I'm really stretched at the mo in real life. Came up with this. If you plonk it on a background and set the blend mode to Luminosity it ought to work OK. If I had more time I'd be able to make it a bit more convincing, but it's the best I can do at short notice.

PS, this tutorial (http://www.ehow.com/how_4895986_draw-spiral-photoshop.html)might help if you're using photoshop or similar.

I could have sworn that Torstan did a really nice transparent whirlpool image too, a while back..

Edit: Yep, knew I'd seen it somewhere! Here is the link on Torstan's blog (http://fantasticmaps.wordpress.com/?attachment_id=184).

Ive ended up using Torts one, It turns out I must have been holding my tongue wrong when I was doing the search coz on RPTools they gave me another pile of options.

Cheers Chaps :)
