Starburst-Speedlines Tutorial by PhiTuS Starburst-Speedlines Tutorial by PhiTuS
You may have been wondering how I do those kickass streaky backgrounds. Well this is it. PHOTOSHOP.

This technique was based on a Polykarbon tutorial on creating rain.

When I animate these, all I really do is use the same image but rotate and mirror them.

I use a similar technique for the pseudo film grain effect.

A radial blur? Motion blur? Where're they?

You need Adobe Photoshop for this.

thanks to your simplistic tutorial. I've created the right speedlines for a few of the backgrounds for my latest parody comic, "Trophemon." Check it out by clicking this [link]

i like to bump up the contrast also. otherwise you can get a weird wood-grain effect.

alternately, stretching anything that comes out of the 'fibers' filter looks like this...

and there are stock paths floating around the net to give you that authentic hand-brushed manga look.

The dodge tool makes things brighter.

The burn tool makes things darker.

Is there a tool in photoshop that actually makes a radial blur?
