  • glowing alien

    Just recently stumbled in here...saw the glowfish entry and it was a great rendition....
    maybe this isn't quite glow but ....
    Using an alien head I had I
    overlayed left eye...applied a jewel preset which introduced the red...duped and flipped.Shaped a green overlay on head...applied a greenjewel effect ...which intoduced the lines..Dragged original off and deleted.Instead of applying a glow preset , I tried creating glow by fooling with drop shadows...for green x=1 y=1 tran 16%-size200 soft edge150 green -0-195-26.
    Created a red 255- 105 round 3d -border10 and used this object to create shadow same as before except red229.
    Split shadow ...deleted red object .added a light effect.
    Merged red glows as single object an added light effect.

    I hope I met the correct protocol in this sub mission

    Tried pasting here (can it be done?)

    OH boy, I hope I never see him in a dark alley. You sure did this challenge good. I like the green glow around his head too. Nice touch. Very good Tom (and very scary)

        Talk about alien encounters…spooky! You did a great job creating a glowing effect for both the eyes and the alien itself. I almost feel like it is trying to hypnotize me or scan me or something. Great job!

          How do I get this effect?
          by fotogen
          How do you create the red circles that are filling the empty space in the image attached. I am looking for these sorts of effects for some of my own beauty images. Are there any Photoshop plug-ins I can purchase? If not, how would I go about doing these red circles? Please notice they are not perfect...

          (Big Sean - Do It) Red and Blue Effect
          by dvbear
          I know this is a photography/photoshop forum and that this question may be out of place but I was hoping that the fine line between video and photos could be crossed and someone might be able to chime in.

          I'm trying to achieve an effect I saw in the music video "Big Sean - Do It...

          Shadow on half of the body
          by eclectic1
          Hello, this is my first time posting to this site. I have a friend who took a photograph of someone but half of the person body is dark and the other is light. When I tried to fix the face it started looking distorted. Can anyone tell me how I can even out the color so it looks natural or is it impossible...
