Check out the following 10 new and free Illustrator tutorials
for February 2013.
Welcome to the tutorial where I shall practice my design skills
along with making wallpaper using the design language
basically I will use only PS, but it is very good to use Illustrator
or Corel Draw

is basically a right angled shape defined as a brush.
Here I will show you the effect of this brush.
So I've just painted some strokes with green and yellow color and applied Motion blur filter to it. I do that most of the
time in my works when I want to define the initial color gamma of my design.
Then I added other colors with the help of flat brush. Create a new layer before that. Moreover change the brush blending
mode to overlay and the flow jitter is set to about 20% (on Wacom G4 with 512 pressure levels) giving that high contrasted

A little bit more of motion blur - try to match the direction of the lines.
Now let's add even more color to it. So I did chosen 2 basic colors for my design - it's orange and green. What I'm doing
right now is finding the balance of colors.
Warp just a little bit to.
I also want to apply outer glow - the effect could hardly be seen but it did changed the tones a little.
Now comes the brush action:
As you can see I've also dropped a shadow.
