    Hi

    I have managed to create the gradient successfuly in step 1 but I cannot create the swirly shapes that you have created with the pen tool above in steps 2 onwards. Min lines come out as straight lines and have no body to them

    There must be some other steps involved in the drawing of the swirls

    If you have any more info please could post it on here

    Thanks, Mike

    If you click and hold down left mousebutton and then move your mouse it will appear a curly line. Search for a guide on youtube, you will see how the pen tool should be used :)

    // Sorry for the bad english :P

    When you drew the very first curve you used how did you expand the appearance of the Pen Tool in Photoshop? Or, did you go back around and trace it on its opposite side?
