Rubix Cube

1) Open Gimp with a new image 300x300px (white background is ok).
2) Fill the background with a checkboard pattern (Filters / Render / Pattern / Checkboard). Size 100px.
You should get something like this:


3) Now we will make a grid. Go to Filters / Edge-Detect / Edge
Algorithm: Sobel
Amount: 2
Smear


4) Invert the colors (Colors / Invert)

5) Now we have a black grid on a white background and we want to make a border around the image.
Go to Image / Canvas size. (304x304px)

6) Select the Move tool (M on keyboard) and center the image. If you are able to handle this step with a mouse than ok, but I used arrows on my keyboard, twice right and twice down.

7) Now create a new layer. Select Bucket fill tool (Shift+B), Select all image (Ctrl+A) and fill the image with black. Than move this new black layer down and deselect all (Ctrl+Shift+A). You should get this result:


8) Now fill the image with some random colors, i used these (green [307617], blue [173d76], red [ff0000], white [ffffff], yellow [aecb0e]). After that, merge the layer down so you get only one layer.


9) Now we are going to make a cube. (Filters / Map / Map object) Use following values, but feel free to change it :p

Options/Map to: Box
Options/Transparent background checked
Options/Enable antialiasing (default)
Light/Lightsource type: Point light
Orientation/Position (default)
Orientation/Rotation
X: 30,0
Y: 45,0
Z: 0,0

10) Voila, the cube is done, but you can continue with 3 more steps to make it better :p.

11) Go to a dialog with layers, right-click on the layer you have there (there should be only one now) and click Alhpa to selection. Than go Select, Grow (1px). Create a new layer, fill it black and move it down. Deselect all (Ctrl+Shift+A).


12) Go to Filters / Light and Shadow / Drop Shadow. (0, 0, 8, black, opacity 80)

13) Add a new layer and move it on the bottom. Create some gradient, something like this, which is the final result:


Did anyone figure it out?

Cool tutorial! My only criticism is that the colors of the stickers should be logically chosen; that is, each face has a different colored center piece, a sticker cannot appear in the same position on multiple faces, edge pieces and corner pieces cannot have any same-colored stickers, etc. etc. I think it's important that the arrangment of stickers in the final product is possible to replicate on an actual cube.

SoccerRyan, I don't think Kyris is going to be doing all of that.

10/10 tutorial. Be sure to use it when I need a Rubix cube.

Someone's doing it for their demonstration speech? That would be really difficult to explain every turn you do and nobody would understand a word that came out of your mouth .

Our speeches were supposed to be 3-5 minutes long, no more than 5 min and no less than 3 min. It took the person that was doing the Rubix Cube 11 minutes! xD He got like a C+ on his speech though...
