So, to make sure I did something useful this Easter Break, I did this tutorial on a Photoshop animating trick I just recently developed.
The finished animation of this tutorial is here:
Since this is an animation tutorial, it might be only helpful for people who needs animation stuffs and know what they would use this stuff for.
But I realized, the swapping-merging technique works awesome to make any other patterns too, even tiles or textile patterns. Well it's good to have such a versatile technique!
--- suggested that Filter > Other > Offset is a better option to do the swapping thingie, so you may give it a try! :3
The softwares used here is Photoshop CS2. I think later versions should have an animation window too, but of not, usually you only need to switch to ImageReady. The painting work itself was made on SAI.
Anyways, here's my tutorial, hope you can understand it and be helpful for whatever you intend to do.
