I was going through this tutorial, and got stumped.
I have the white outline of the image, but I can't figure out how they
did the gradient so the background gets the gradient, but it looks
like the white outline was also affected by the gradient. I tried
various Modes, among failed attempts. :-(
FG: Purple, BG: Green
Tool: Blend Tool (FG to BG, Linear)
Layer 3: Transparent Background w/white outline.
Layer 2: Gradient (not mentioned in the tutorial but was tried by me)
Layer 1: Black Background
Layer 3 will be duplicated twice, with Layer 4's mode set to Value,
and Layer 5 blurred 20 pixels.
Is there another way to get the effect of multiple "rough" outlines
of an image? The tutorial's creator added layers and used Filters >
Distort > Iwarp, repeating that several times.
