=================================
STARFIELD/MAGICAL GLOW F/X TRICKS
=================================
Tutorial by KorganoS 2004
Thanks to sir GregMartin for the inspirations

------------
Requirements
____________
- Adobe Photoshop 6 or newer
- Mouse, no,... a PC, actually... lol
- non-colorblind user

------------
Introduction
____________
This is my first publicized tutorial (although I still have many self-made tutorials, which I will post here, sooner or later ^_^' )
Please do not publish this anywhere else without my permission... I have put much effort in making this tutorial :)

What you will gain from this tutorial :
- Understanding of working with layers (simple, two layered document)
- Layer blending modes, because this trick depends heavily on it
- Advanced brush effects like scattering and size jittering

The reason why I made this tutorial :
- I have no life... ROFL! XD
- sharing my skillz with all of you <.<
- Lots of ppl requested me to make tuts (yeah, since like months ago,.. haven't got the chance, sorry -_- )
- To help you making better walls... yeah this is the most important thing.. :)

---------------
Preparing media
_______________

First off, start with a new, blank image.. I use 800x600 resolution for this one, you can make it bigger, if you wish... Make sure it's a transparent (not filled) document...

http://img141.exs.cx/img141/7708/newdoc7xw.th.gif

Fill The blank layer with black using the paint bucket tool

http://img155.exs.cx/img155/7173/paintbucket0zu.gif

swap the background/foreground color (press X on the keyboard), and click on the front color thumbnail to change the foreground color to blue (I use #0033FF for this one)

http://img139.exs.cx/img139/5295/swapcol2qy.jpg

then go to Filter->Render->Difference Clouds, you can see that the nebula is forming...
repeat the filter using Ctrl+f to make it appear more 'thicker', repeat again as neccessary, you will get various results...

http://img137.exs.cx/img137/5482/diffcloud9fu.jpg
http://img134.exs.cx/img134/4131/diffcloud27kp.th.jpg

make a new layer, then set the blending mode to 'Color Dodge'
Fill it with black

http://img154.exs.cx/img154/2356/modecldodge0af.jpg

then pick the Painbrush tool, and set white color as the foregound color..

| OPTIONAL STEP |

http://img151.exs.cx/img151/2073/streak1sy.th.jpg

try brushing over the 'Color Dodged' layer, what do you get? It's somekind of neon-colored streak, neat eh? ^^

--------------
Advanced Steps
______________

Go into brush options

http://img149.exs.cx/img149/8346/brushopt6an.jpg

drag the 'Spacing' slider to around 250%, or as necessary..

http://img146.exs.cx/img146/4193/spacing5ih.jpg

Make sure the checkbox next to 'Shape Dynamics' is active... then click on it to see the options... drag the 'Size jitter' slider to max (100%)

http://img142.exs.cx/img142/921/sizejitter8qb.jpg

go into 'Scattering' option, and make sure the checkbox is active..
drag the scatter slider to max (1000%)

http://img141.exs.cx/img141/9284/scatter9zp.jpg

then use the Paintbrush tool again... set the brush size to around 20 pixels or less
brush over the layer, then VOILA! you have a very neat effect to make stars or magical effects for a character... very pretty, isn't it? XD

http://img139.exs.cx/img139/1688/finish7av.th.jpg

----------
Conclusion
__________

-Continue to experiment with different settings, and different colors...

-to make starfields, use even smaller brush and make it as random as possible..

-Try experimenting with duplicating the layer, and changing blending modes..

Last but not least, look forward my next tutorial.... :D lol dunno when I'll finish it...
