NOTE TO ME
This is a technique used in advertising a lot these days.
Draw some nice thin curved lines using the Photoshop Pen tool.
[See last post]
Now add glow by double clicking the layer to activate the Effects. Check Outer Glow option and play with the color, transparency, etc. to get the exact line you want.
You can add Glowing sparks by create the right brush using the following settings. Choose the default Soft Round 21px brush, then go to the Brushes palette and edit the settings like this:
- Change the spacing in the Brush Tip Shape to 222%
- Check Shape Dynamics and change the Size Jitter to 100%
- Check Scattering, check Both Axes and put the Scatter to 775%
Draw randomly alone the line/lines you made before using the brush set to a light color that matches perfectly for the glowing line/lines.
Try changing size and shade, using new levels to enhance the effect on your photo…
IT SHOULD LOOK BETTER THAN THIS (Not Hard I know).
