Create a new document in Photoshop. Select Gradient tool to make a Radial Gradient. I made one employing a background color of 000000 and a foreground color of 009092. Place it a little under the middle of your work it will look pleasanter at the end.
To make your light ball a more robust light effect duplicates your layer and set the layer properties of the top layer to paint Dodge
Now we'll add some distortion to our orb, solely to break the pattern. Create a new layer and render some clouds by going straight to Filter Render Clouds. Ensure you employ a background with 000000 and foreground FFFFFF
Change the Opacity of layer as 30% and layer style to Overlay. Now go to Filter Sketch Chrome, use the default settings (Detail four & Smoothness seven) and press OK.
Let's change applications. Open up Illustrator and place a personality or word in a new file. I'll be making the word QPoit with a color of 000000 and a font called Arno Pro. Go to Effect 3d Extrude & Bevel to open a new window.
I utilized the following settings that you can see later on. Check the "Preview" box to show a preview while modifying your variables. I also modified the shading to FFFFFF. Same setting for the second part of the word ("Poit"). The sole change is the Y-axis: it's got a revolution of -26.
Drag your 3d characters to your Photoshop file to immediately implement them. I know it does not look really pretty (yet) at this moment, but we are getting there.
Right click the right word (in my case the "Poit" part) in your layers and select Mixing Options. I added an Outer Glow with the Mix Mode set to paint Dodge. I used FFFFFF color with 75% opacity.
Also add a Gradient Overlay with the Mix Mode set to overlay. The gradient has opacity of fifty percent, beginning with 009092 and going to 000000. The angle is about to 180.
The "Q" part uses the same settings, but only with the Gradient Overlay has an angle of nil.
on top of all of your other layers create a new layer. Grab your Pen Tool (P) and make a Trail. Try making it look fancy, like it is actually turning around any bit of your 3d character.
Grab a basic brush with a diameter of seven with a toughness of one hundred percent, the color FFFFFF and flow of 25%. For Photoshop CS3, open your Brushes palette (F5). Set Control to Pen Pressure and check Shape Dynamics.
Right click in your trails palette on your just made work path and select Stroke path... The source is a brush and ensures you check the Simulate Pressure box: It will give the nice, smooth edges. You can now remove your trail.
Get rid of the parts of the swirl that you need to look like as if they're behind the personality. You may use the Eraser Tool (E), but since I am hot for non-destructive Photoshopping, I might recommend making a Layer Mask and brushing those parts away.
There are other 2 swirls that are wrapped around my characters. Add an Outer Glow to each swirl by changing the Mixing mode. Set the Outer Glow to paint Dodge with opacity of fifty percent. I utilized the color 009092 with a size of thirteen PX.
Add inner glow to swirls. Set the Mix Mode to Normal with a size of three PX. I used a similar color for the Inner Glow as the Outer Glow: 009092.
Particles give a pleasant, hi-tech effect to this type of art. Grab a soft brush with a size of nine PX. Now go to your brush palette (F5) and fool around with the Size Jitter, Scatter & Spacing. I determined to make the particles FFFFFF and brushed them on a new layer above the swirls. Change the Layer Properties to paint Dodge. I have used further settings
We're now at a stage where we are able to call the design already just about done. I could not resist adding a Lens Flare behind the letters by going straight to Filter Render Lens flare and using the 105 mm prime with a lightness of ninety percent. Set the layer style to "Screen".
using Elliptical Marquee Tool (M), you can add some circles fill them with FFFFFF and setting the opacity very low. It will give the piece some last touches.
There you go, a pretty provoking super glowing and sparkling intense light 3d trademark using Photoshop & Illustrator. I'm hoping you learned something new & be at liberty to place your design made by following this tutorial in the comments.
