Advanced Glow Effects In this tutorial, we're going to create some really sharp-looking glow effects using a combination of layer styles, the Pen Tool and Color Blending. The end effect is quite stunning and hopefully you'll pick up some tips you didn't know before. As with pretty much every tutorial I've ever written, we begin with a radial gradient. This one is pretty harsh and goes from a reddish brown color to black. Here are the exact color codes: Foreground color - #922f00 Background color - #000000 In this tutorial, we actually need a pretty intense center, so what we'll do is duplicate the layer we just made and set the one above to a blending mode of Color Dodge. Now in our glow effect, it helps to have a nice textured background. Then go to Filter > Render > Clouds. Now set the opacity of your layer to Overlay and 30% transparency. So go to Filter > Sketch > Chrome and use default settings of 4 and 7 for detail and smoothness respectively. In fact all we want to achieve are some nice curves.

I roughly jot down my landscape idea in a New Document (File > New...) with the dimensions set at a good, wide Landscape format (7000 x 3138 pixels) and a dpi of 300. Step 2 Then on a New Layer, I refine that scribble a bit more until I can see more clearly what I want. 2. Next, I block in the base colors with the Paint Brush Tool (B) set using the Hard Round Airbrush (or Airbrush Full). I rough in the color of the sky first as my core background layer. Step 3 Step 4 Next comes the Middle Ground layer. Step 5 Step 6 Step 7 3.

Le Blog de Sarah Making of 'Funfair' by Daniela Uhlig I like my pictures to describe funny or strange situations, such as in my picture, 'Funfair'. The idea of the funfair came about when I was sitting in the park on one of my lunch breaks. A friend and I were eating ice-cream when a small insect landed on hers... Step 1 As a starting size, I used around about a 3000x3000 pixel canvas, at 300dpi. Fig. 01 Fig. 02 Step 2 I created a layer behind the sketch layer and filled it roughly with my chosen basic colours (Fig03). Fig. 03 Fig. 04 For this piece I chose a daylight situation, in order for a summery, sunny ambiance to be achieved. Fig. 05 Step 3 At this point I had the basic frame upon which I could then start adding all the details... By creating a new layer I made sure that the sketch layer would still be there. Fig. 06 Fig. 07 Fig. 08 The hard brush gives us a nice painterly character, unlike when using Airbrush, as this feature always looks a little cleaner. Fig. 09 Fig. 10 After that I worked on the ice-cream cone. Fig. 11 Fig. 12 next page >
