Great one. nice work I like the effect around the globe

you can get quite a good globe using hawksmonts bubble brush (deviant art)

Re: Just another montage of brushes.

thanks for the encouragement. I will have to check out the brushes from hawksmonts. I usually make the globes. they aren't to hard to make. only takes about 3 minutes to make one.

Now that is showing off I have tried a few tuts and given up on them, hence how i know about the bubble brush


and if you can make them on to a transparent layer save one as a psd that will save you having to make them.

Re: Just another montage of brushes.

Not trying to show off but i did find this tutorial on how to make them it is very simple and easy to follow. He uses photographs to make the circles i use other things like render fibers, or different colors used to make a gradient for making lightning. Or even fractal brushes you get some very strange designs.

The author also has a group on flicker for amazing circles

I did this one with a fractal brush made the circle. came up with a couple of faces in it if you look hard you can see them and rendered fibers for the background.

Re: Just another montage of brushes.

This one was done it took a total of about 20 minutes made the globe using a gradient, render difference clouds, levels to get the lightning. I then use a galaxy brush for the background added some radial blur set to zoom about 45 added a new layer added the final background using a brush. Used two copies of the globe with a planet layer between them. I then added a gradient overlay as a clipping mask to get the final color for the background. That took the longest figuring out what color to use.

I hope that i didnt offend you it was just a bit of friendly banter
I have made amazing circles but from photographs mainly i havent thought about using things like gradients etc although some have, here is a link to some that I and other members have done

and this is one of the tuts for a sphere that i havent been able to do ! i keep thinking imust go back and try again but i get sidetracked toooo easy
