1. Fill it up with the color of your choice. Right click on a second color
2. Use the free-form select tool to scribble all over.
3. Right click and hit cut. This background will be different then the picture you will soon see because I accidently saved the wrong picture so I had to redo it.
4. Select the polygon tool and make sure the plain color box is highlighted, make a bunch of lines and click on where you started.

Step 3: Alllmost done!!!

This is way cooler than mine!
Flumpkins (author)  DRADIS6 years ago
Thank you. Do you think I made "easy-to-follow" Insructions?
It's pretty easy to follow. The main value is the idea itself, there's obviously a lot of variation in how it can be implemented. I know I'll try doing this, but it'll probably be using my own method. Thanks for the idea.

Wait a minute... your name is shooby.. what is your real first name??
Justin, why
Flumpkins (author)  shooby6 years ago
Because my name is justin and my PS3 name is Jshooby...
First name that came to mind. My cousin calls dogs "de shoobies", no idea why. Caught on I guess.
Flumpkins (author)  shooby6 years ago
I know that this was a month ago but I CAN'T TAKE IT!!!!! This is sooooo weird. I'm nearly choking right now! :D Jk
Hah fair enough. The cousin is Dutch by the way, hence the 'de'.
Flumpkins (author)  shooby6 years ago
Cool! I forget, is Dutch German?
Nope! Dutch is Dutch, spoken in Holland (netherlands) German is German, spoken in Germany. They look really similar on paper, but grammatically are very different.
Flumpkins (author)  shooby6 years ago
Oooohhh.... I see. Cool. Have YOU been to Holland?
Yep, a couple of times. I'm half Dutch.

Flumpkins (author)  shooby6 years ago

Flumpkins (author)  shooby6 years ago
