I’m about to blow your mind!
- Start off with a good ol circle :D
- Use your brush, opacity set to pen pressure, and sort of “smudge” out of the circle to look like a bit whirly and blurry
- Make a new layer mode and set it to Overlay. Colour that in a nice and pretty colour, with near white being in the centre of the orb.
- Now here’s the important part! Make a new layer, and change the mode to “Linear Dodge”. Take out a soft brush and softly paint a colour on the orb. Congrats! You’ve learned the cheat way to make something glow! :P
- Change your levels/curves to darken everything, making the orb look bright
- Pat yourself on the back for learning a new skill!
I hope that helps buddy! Use it sparingly! Good luck and have fun! :D
