Advanced Glow Effects

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.
