This video isn’t exactly a tutorial, but more of a guide. You guys can see how I make my banners. I use mostly custom brushes and smudging techniques.
Title: Smudge Banner Tutorial
Note: If anything, I’d pay attention to the beginning + end and skim through the middle. It’s all about experimenting and finding the right effects.
Music: Music is included. Mute if you like since there’s no commentary. I messed up around 11-15, so there’s no music there.
Big Bang – Oh, Ah, Oh
Namie Amuro – Wild
Judy Chou – 寂寞包廂
Bae Seul Ki – Come To Me
Epik High – One (Feat. Jisun)
Big Bang – Lie (Remix)
Clazziquai Project – Come To Me (Mellotron Remix)
SHINee – 누난 너무 예뻐 (Replay Boom Track)
