>What is Renders in Shapes?
A style of wallpaper that has a render, within a shape, on top of a nature/urban background. Shapes are typically white/black in color. Background is often blurred around the shape, and left unblurred in the middle. Text is sometimes added.

Not really. The whole Renders in Shapes thing is designed to play with depth perception and perspective. If it’s superimposed it looks fine, but it doesn’t “rub” the same “itch”. Keep doing your thing anon, though. Don’t let societal aesthetic norms get in the way of expressing your art.

You’re on the right track. The trick with this style of wallpaper is to use the shape to play with perspective and make the “render” “pop” in relation with whatever background you use. For that to work you have to “hide” and/or delete part of the image you use “behind” the shape. See the tutorials in the OP and you’ll get it, it’s hard at first but in time you’ll see the way almost instinctively. I’d recommend to think before starting: “what’s in front, and what’s in the back?”

first things first: the bg has a shit tier awful text mark at the bottom right. second: the bg is really center focused, it hinges on you fixating on the center (giant red gate), the girl is slightly turned but looking dead center, and it's sort of off balance... it will tend to look really weird because they sort of don't fit together

anyone know what's the issue?
>>
>>2228531
are you using selections to blur? there should be an option to invert the selection.
alternatively, what I like to do is
>copy BG layer
>mask/crop the top one to shape
>blur the bottom
then you could probably add glow or shadow between the 2 layers

Tall, skinny shape + minimal background means you need to pull out all the stops to keep it visually interesting. I haven't done much with scanlines in years so these might be a little weak, I can tweak them if needed.

The OP on this thread has some tutorials and pointers. I’m not familiar at all with the software you mention. I use Pixlr because I seldom work on the same PC and travel a lot. Most anons here use Gimp, PS, or even Paint dot net. What makes you use that instead of other tools, if I could ask?

Well, that is a render in a shape. Quote some examples of what you want your final product to look like and we can tell you how to do it.
In general, we use masks to selectively apply a filter (usually a strong blur) to the background and to remove it from the inside of our shape. To make the characters 'pop' from inside of the image, we just pick the parts closest to the camera and place them outside of the shape. Anything else you erase or mask so that it 'disappears' behind your shape. As for creating the shape itself - go wild. I'm experimenting with complex shapes at the moment but a plain circle or square works as well as it always has.

If you're not familiar with masks: when you paint black on them the layer they are masking disappears. painting white brings it back.

Well, step one of the renders in shape thing is the rendering, there's not much you can do as far as perspective without a clean render to work with. You can request lewd stuff rendered in the IMT as long as you link to it and warn people it's NSFW.

Literally the first paragraph:
>What is Renders in Shapes?
A style of wallpaper that has a render, within a shape, on top of a nature/urban background. Shapes are typically white/black in color. Background is often blurred around the shape, and left unblurred in the middle. Text is sometimes added.

My very first render in shape, took me about 45 minutes to get it right. Character is AK-Alfa from girls' frontline (that's the official render), and the background comes from here https://www.pixel4k.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/night-city-skyscrapers-tokyo-night-4k_1538068102.jpg

The plan is to, eventually, build a little piece of software that receives two images that it will use to create a wallpaper on this style (maybe other styles as well) automatically. Imagemagick allows that, since you do everything with commands:

https://imagemagick.org/index.php
>>
>>2229120
That's an interesting idea, but I really don't think it's possible. You can't automatically determine where the subject should be placed in the wallpaper, how to alter the colors to match, what shape or style the "shape" should be, or what parts of the subject are 'in front' of the shape and which should be hidden, or even which filters should be used for the inside and outside of the shape. I guess a script to generate the basic template is a nice idea, but it would only save about 2 or 3 minutes tops. Honestly, most of the time spent on these wallpapers is just chewing your pencil trying to decide what direction you want to go with it, actually doing it takes just a few minutes.

Render ON shape. Heh, nice.
But this one looks awkward. The shape isn't visible enough. It sinks in the BG, making it hard to see the render interacting with the shape. I thought you were mixing 2D-IRL at first but she's hovering on the table.
Also can't agree with the unblurred at the bottom near-edge I can't properly explain it but something feels wrong.
And friendly reminder, this is still 4chan. Don't feed them.

These are nice, good composition and colors, but I do question the choice of blur on both - they create a frenetic feeling that I don't think either image calls for. The first one looks like the room is spinning and the second looks like you're caught in a rainstorm in the park, at first glance. Unless that's intentional, a basic gaussian would probably work better.

>>
>>2229506
I have a few ideas:
Tilt her back a bit and make her pop out of the frame more.
Raise or lower the contrast and saturation of the background - do you want her to melt into the snowy landscape or pop out of it?
Borrow more from the background for the frame - use the shape and color of the lanterns, for example, or borrow the double-beam element from the gate.
Alternatively, make the shape softer and the transition less abrupt, and make it bluish instead of reddish. Add some filters to the inside of the shape as well to increase the feeling of 'being surrounded' by the snow.

It's not perfect (nothing is) and it's in my own style to a degree, but this is kind of what I envisioned when I saw your original.

I increased the BG blur and lowered the saturation to make the character pop more, then added a halftone in the shape to add some 'snow'. The render doesn't have a ton of color or depth, so you have to compensate by making it pretty big and downplaying the background.
>>
>>2229538

I like it too, anon.

Made it myself, I know it's not great but its my first attempt.
>>
>>2231372

Pointers for your next try:

- Try to use high quality, high resolution transparent background pictures for the main subject of your piece. The ideal quality is vector, but 4K jpgs or pngs can work wonders as well... even when using lower resolutions. 3000 pixels high are the smaller ones I use, when reducing the resolution they don't look bad at all. Post requests on the vector and IMT threads if you can't do the stuff yourself.
- Be mindful of perspective. On your pic most of the dude is "over" the shape, and if you want perspective to do its job then you should have some parts "behind" and some parts that go "over". Look here >>2231256, the thighs are "cut behind" the shape, but the arm and hand go over it to create the illusion of depth.
- Be mindful of overall resolution and aspect ratio. Practice composition (a LOT) and different focal points for your wallpaper. A bit of planning and vision will save you A LOT of work correcting stuff. In your attempt the dude looks a bit tiny compared to the flowers and the overall garden, and it's slightly off center. You can crop and relocate creatively, don't stop moving pieces until you're satisfied with how the composition looks.. Also, it helps to imagine where people usually put their icons.
- Use some effects other than blur on the backgrounds. Play around a bit until you find something you like. Don't overdo it, few people like "deep fried" wallpapers.
- General Tip: Save states often, use lots of layers, and duplicate when going for large changes. That way retracing your steps and correcting is less painful.

Keep posting your efforts. And don't get discouraged, you'll get the hang of it eventually.
>>
>>2231379
Wow thank you a lot, I will definitely keep all that in mind next time!
This is actually really helpful.
I know the blurring wasnt maybe the best choice, but I was just really happy with getting the shape to work, I have never really done anything like this before, and there are.. almost no tutorial on how to do it in Clip Studio Paint. So I had to kind of just.. go. More or less.

but thank you! I'm going to keep working on it.
>>
>>2231381

Sure, that's what we're here for. The blurring is fine, it's just a bit bland considering everything else going on. Specially with such a small subject. For example if you used a bit of vignete effect, it instantly feels more focused and balanced.

Example: Literally took your own pic, played around with the colors, added a white vignete effect. And it already looks more serviceable. It's not something anyone would actually use, because the major issues require tinkering with the original layers and pictures... but it's just to prove that fucking around with some features can do wonders for your stuff.

For more examples of different approaches and stuff you can do, this conversation was quite stimulating. >>2228486

I learned using pixlr because the interface is friendlier, but feel free to use whatever feels more comfortable for you.
>>
>>2231383
Huh, I see what you mean, that is much more serviceable. I might have to pick a different render image though, since the once I chose was only so big.. and heavily cropped to get rid of the other characters in the photo.
So I'm probably going to work on all of this tonight.
>>
>>2231384

paste them as catbox links and let some anons go at it, I’ll go over my own process and write it down so you can learn a bit… hopefully some more experienced anons can also weigh in so as to learn from each other

we’re gonna need: (a) the original background picture, no modifications. (b) the original transparent background render. (c) the original picture you got the render from. (d) the “energy” or “vibe” you want your wallpaper to convey. with all that some of us may be able to work some stuff out, you’ll learn a few tricks, and maybe get some inspiration for new projects

I made sure he wasnt ouside the box but since this photo has no top or bottom cleanly, i decided to fit him in it and work more with the background, I dialed back the Gaussian Blur and added some gradients to the image to try and brink the lighter color of his Haori into the image a bit more...
Tengen Uzui is a flashy kind of guy who loves festivals and I wanted to give this a more 'exciting' tone. I picked a charry blossom fesival background for it since it both went with color and theme tone.

Thank you so much! I'm really learning alot so far! :D

Even though this goes with the spirit of the thread, yo seem to have misunderstood the concept of it. The idea is to use transparent background images.
>>
>>2232625
Yeah, but i don't have a transparency for that image, so i just did something similar to >>2228084 for example
>>
>>2232366
that front tit hanging out is sublime
>>2231840
It's quite nice, the colors work well together and the simple white frame is a good choice for a calm background like that. I'll just give my standard advice - don't be afraid to think 'outside the shape.' A slight angle and pulling out another element (her hand or elbow, maybe) can add the extra pop you might be looking for. Also, while the center works for this image - always be looking for other places to put your subject. Perhaps she could be on the left coming out of the store, or she could be right in the middle of the street jaywalking.

requesting a 1920x1080 pool background
>>
>>2232709

the fact that there's already a pool and white colored water makes it super awkward anon
>>
>>2232727
Damn
>>
>>2232727
Not if you delete the pool and have her sitting on the edge of the shape.
>>
>>2232709
I'll take a crack at this.

I finally managed to pull one o these off using just the terminal (using imagemagick for editing and sxiv for visualization)! It's simple and not perfect yet, but at least it proves it can be done, now onto refactoring the whole script and try to make it work for other backgrounds and characters. /w/hat do you think?
>>
>>2232787

we value your work and effort anon... that said... the thighs are evidently "over" the shape making it look weird

Fixed (i forgot to account for the shape thickness when making the masks). It's still not 100% imho, but i guess it's the start of something pretty cool :D

hello, requesting a 1920x1080 background using this render. a kinda vertical, horizon-focused shape like the OP would be nice but whatever looks best is best.
i will reply to this image with a background i found.
>>
>>2233087
i liked this one out of a bunch that ive found but if you have one that better fits the colors, looks nicer, or anything like that, feel free to use another picture. the general theme being an urban, apocalyptic look, with shaw "popping out" motivationally in contrast to its decrepit nature.
>>
My first try

no non-compressed version. got away with 3MB cause there aren't that many details, even the BG in shape isn't that detailed. But here's a fixed version
