    Default Glowing Effects (In Photoshop)

    Alright here is a tutorial showing how I make my glowing lines/specks. Here it goes:

    1.) Make a new image, making the background all black. Once opened, create a new layer. Set the colors so black is the background color, and red (a22a21) is the foreground color. Make a radical gradient so it looks kinda like the one in the picture.


    2.) Goto Filter > Render > Clouds and click it. Ctrl-f until you get a desired background.


    3.) Once the desired background is made, goto Filter > Brush Strokes > Accented Edges and click on it.


    4.) Set the brush to one of the fading brushes and set the size to "10". After that, change the red to orange (f9a239). Click ctrl-shift-n to make a new layer. Once completed, click on the pen tool and change it to "path". Make a zig-zag similar to the one in the picture.


    5.) Click and hold on the pen tool icon and change it to "contour". Make the pointed corners smooth and rounded. Click on the "Paths" tab in the layer thing (Outlined in green in picture). Right click on the only thing there and select "Stroke Path". Make sure "pressure" is checked and the box shows "Brush". Click "Ok"


    6.)Go back to the layers tab. Right click on Layer 2(The one with the line) and click on "Blending Options". Set the following options:




    7.) Set the brush to different sizes and make lots of dots on the image. I use sizes 10, 5, 3, and 2.

    8.) Click "Ok" so the settings apply. Now, right click on the same layer again, but this time click "Copy Layer Style".


    9.) Create a new layer. Right click on the new layer and click "Paste Layer Style".


    10.) Right click on that layer and click "Blending Options". Goto "Color Overlay" and set the same settings I did.


    And after all that, you're done! I hope everyone enjoys my tutorial. I plan to make some more in the future!

    When I get photoshop I'll mess around with this tut.
    I like the work you do with this kind of technique.

    good tutorial gave some Rep to you, congratz on the 3rd rep bar lol

    i've used this method before but i was never able to make it work with any of my renders and usually when I try this I try to make the glowing things go around the render which doesn't work too well, or i just dont know how to do it lol

    good tut

    and by the way, a simple tip, you may want to water mark those images with your name or something because people may use this as their own, we had an idiot do that on this forum but he didn't last too long, but its just a suggestion
