First let me start off by saying that I'm a programmer and have very little experience with Photoshop, so thanks for helping me out! I'm trying to create a background for my main view, but I'm not sure exactly how to go about doing it.
I'd like there to be vertical black stripes tilted 30 degrees clockwise on a yellow background. However, instead of the black lines I'd like stripes randomly spread about the image but with the same slant. For the stripes, I'd like them to give a sense of movement with sharp ends and be a little thinner than the stripes in this picture. Is this possible? How would I go about doing this with Photoshop CS5?
You can draw the diagonal lines on a logarithmic scale to get that effect. It would be both symmetric and varied.
