How to Create Intense Light Streaks in Photoshop This post was originally published in 2008 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. A couple of subscribers left their comment on a previous post that collated a range of inspiring graphic artwork from digital artists across the world. The commentors asked how the light stream effect on some of the pieces was created. I did a little research and picked up a couple of tips from similar tutorials to present a walkthrough on how to create intense light streaks flowing around an object or person.

Create a magical rainbow color flame in Photoshop One of the things I’ve seen around quite a bit lately is a transparent rainbow gradient effect on a dark background. It seems to me that flashy transparent gradients are in these days. They make me think about magic. Today I’ll show you how you can create a magical rainbow color flame. OK, maybe I’m using too many words in a row here, but it’s the best I can do to describe this. I should tell you upfront that for this tutorial basic knowledge of Photoshop is needed. Draw smoky lines First we start with the creation of the smoky lines by using the Pen tool. Double click on the right on one of the layers to open the Layer Styles. Add a cold gradient color flame First we'll create a rainbow gradient preset. Create a new layer, select the Elliptical Marquee tool and drag a circular selection (hold down shift while dragging) towards the bottom of the smoky lines. Touch up the flame using the Smudge tool If all goes well your gradient should look more or less as in the image below. My end result

Creating Energy Spheres in Photoshop For this tutorial you’ll want to find a photo of someone doing something that looks a bit larger than life. I used this photo that I found at the stock photo website Stock Exchange. For this tutorial you’ll need a photo that you want to manipulate and some special brush sets which I downloaded from here. This will be the final result. Download the brush set and install it. I grouped these together then, using the technique from Step 7 again, I use layer masking to block one half of the sphere I created.

Create a 3D Glossy Box Logo in Photoshop Step 1 – Creating the Background Choosing colors for a background is important because it will influence how your image stands out. Since we are going to be creating a vibrant glossy box, let’s use a dark background. Create a new document, mine is 256x256px for the purpose of this tutorial. Set a dark gray, #363636, as your foreground color and black, #000000, as your background color. Once you have your colors selected, grab your Gradient Tool and create a radial gradient near the center of your document as shown in the image below. Since we want the box to appear as though it is on a surface and not floating in the air, we are going to add another gradient. Step 2 – Creating the Box Now that we have our background, we need to create our actual box. Since we want our box to have some perspective, we are going to need to transform it by going to Edit > Transform > Perspective. Now that we have the right shape, let’s change the color. Step 3 – Creating the Gloss Effect Gradient Overlay Stroke
