[Digital Spider Web Effect Tutorial]

Create a new image in Photoshop by using: File/New. The image should be 400 x 400 or bigger. The next thing you want to do make a second layer by going under Layer/New/Layer. Fill the bottom layer with black and switch to the gradient tool. Use the gradient tool to make a design with all horizontal gradients. Then use the Filter/Distort/Wave and click randomize. It should look like the one below.

Then right click this layer and make three (3) copies. Now you should have your black layer and 4 identical gradient wave layers. Now highlight the first gradient layer and flip it 90 degrees clockwise. The second layer should be flipped 180 degrees and the third layer should be flipped 90 degrees counter clockwise. You should have an interesting design now, like the one below.

Now you are almost done, go under Image/ Adjustments/Inverse and then go under Filter/ Stylize/Find Edges. Your image should look like the one below.

To finish it off try adding some color and maybe a design or two. Check out my final effect below (click on it because it looks better in the full size) and leave me any questions or comments in the forum.

This tutorial was made using Adobe Photoshop 7. Feel free to use this tutorial however you wish, but please link back to us.
