Volume 45 - Sahar Tutorial

Volume 45 – Sahar Tutorial
This tutorial is Sahar Tutorial by Epogh on DA

Tutorial Tips:
Set your scale around 20 to start

This is another one from Milo. This one creates rich textures. Do not use 7x 15C!!!! It is very tutorial unfriendly and will not work with this tut and just about every other tut. I suggest using 7x 15B. It’s the best version IMO! I kept 7x 15C and just downloaded 7x 15B to a folder on my desktop and use it there. It will automatically know where you save your renders. Put your 2 new plugins in the 15B Plugin folder.

*Plugins Needed: 2 plugins are included in the zip file along with the tutorial and gradient. *

Here is your easy button for your convenience!

Have fun & good luck!

Wonderful creations James and Marjut. I have a question for you James. I have Apo. 7X 15. Didn’t know a B or C existed. How can I tell which I have?
I looked in the (about) section and all it says is 7X 15. Don’t want to start on this tut yet in case I have C.

Second.Yeah.
Sheila-I have also this 7X15-and do not know the letter after it.Just start to play with your Apo- but that is my opinion.Hugs Marjut

Sheila, if you’ve had your Apo a while, you’ll probably be ok. The more recent versions have extra plugins added that do not work the same as the ones you have to add yourself. Just about every tut uses the one’s you add yourself. When you first open Apo a box pops up and tells which version it is.
Nice work Marjut on those 2…..love them!

I added a third transform to create this one….I found this created more colour and also texture…..depending on what variation was used…. :)

Thanks James. Guess I was thinking well maybe I could be doing these tuts better. lol Great job you all are doing. : ) Here are my first. Am not real pleased with them but now that I’ve read about the 3rd T maybe the next will be better. Thanks Pam for the info. : ) Oh, and good to see you back Carolyn. : )

beautiful designs Sheila….love the colours and the shine…..gorgeous… :)
with this design I created the first two transforms……up to the circular shape….. before rotating and moving them I added a third transform, trying different variations, then I went back and rotated and moved T1, I used smaller sizes so that I could see what changes it made to the design…
