Texture Help

I'm struggling to figure out how to get this background texture to look right. I've looked at a few fire and smoke textures but none of them have been good enough to get the color transitions the way I want them. So now I'm stuck trying to figure a way to make the texture myself but I really don't know what the best method is. I was hoping someone here had an opinion on how to go about this. I'm thinking the smudge tool is a good place to start but after that I have no clue. Any help is appreciated.

This is in GIMP, but I believe there are brushes like this in Photoshop.



You could always make the base in GIMP and place it in Photoshop, or if there are brushes in Photoshop you could just use those.

Looks like a mixture of clouds and liquid smoke blended with different hues from the same origin color. Not going to get it exact but you can definitely play with some stuff to get it close.

@Zoom I used a gradient than overlaid one of the sun pics JimC suggested and some tweaking and came up with this. Since they are a drug company that makes meds for skin cancer I would say it's definitely the sun used for the base

Thanks for the input everyone. I've worked on it some and I'll get a picture up tomorrow to show the results.

iRacing unfortunately reduces the quality on schemes in game but it looks decent on the flat. Anyway here's where I'm at. I did what you guys suggested. I got the color fades about right and overlaid it on a texture. I'm going to work on it some more later this week to try and get the texture underneath to have more defined edges to it. I actually utilized a weird combo to start off which was a gold leaf texture with an overlay of smoke on it then I added the colors. I'll play around with some of the sun images and see if that turns out better.

Here's part of of it in better quality. It's ok I guess now that I look at more. I think I need the texture to be more swirling than what I got so like I said I'll try the sun and see what that does.

James Petty posts this on the iRacing forums pretty often. There's an option in renderer.ini that allows you to turn off compression in the sim.

Wow thanks I did not know about that. It never even occurred to me to look this up.
