Create An Anime Starburst Effect

You’ll be creating something like this…

Anime Starburst img

Download this image and make it a pattern – Edit > Define Pattern.

Open a new document 750×750.

1. Create a New Fill Layer >> Layer > New Fill Layer > Pattern

2. Select the pattern that you saved and click OK.

3. Right click on the layer and select merge down.

4. Now go to Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates and select Rectangular to Polar.

Coloring time!

Create a new layer, fill it with a orange color. After that change the Blend Mode of the layer to Hard Light. This will color both the black and white to two nice oranges.

Finish! Very quick and simple tutorial.
