Gloweye

This was my first attempt at trying to make something glow, and I wasn't very successful. I decided to try it on my own, but now I know I need to refer to the other techniques people have used. I tried so many different things that I'm not sure just what I wound up using. But here it is anyhow:

Took a digital shot of my eye.
Used the following commands, but I don't remember the order used:
Duplicated the layer
gaussian blur (local and heavy)
layer mask to erase what I didn't want.
filter - stylize - glowing edges
hue/sat. adjustment layer - heavy on saturation
duplicated layer
unsharp mask - locally sharpened heavily
layer mask to undo part of the sharpen
hue/sat. layer mask was used two or three times to get the final tones.
I don't know where the red came from, but I left it there.

at one point, I desaturated a duplicated layer, and lowered the opacity to keep a little bit of the facial color.

Now if I could just get a big name artist to sign it, I would have something!

It's too bad the x-files is ending. This would work for that show.
Really neat, Ed.
