Abstract lighting effects
Learn how to create a very colorful waves element with light effects in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
Create a new file (File>New) that would have 1920×1200 px and 72 dpi. Using the Paint Bucket Tool (G), it’s possible to give the new file black color.
Select the Rectangle Tool (U) to draw a colored ornament like the one from below:
Set the next demonstrated parameters for the layer by making a mouse click on it on the layers’ panel: Blending Options>Gradient Overlay
Click on the bottom part of the layers’ palette on the next option - Create new fill or adjustment layer>Black&White
Getting the best result is possible if combine in a group all the layers of the lines’ ornament and the layer with the Black&White effect (press Ctrl button to mark out the corresponding layers and then keep presses the left mouse’s button while taking the marked layers on Create a new group option). Rasterize the group by marking out this group and then press CTRL+E. Using the Free Transform option, turn the ornament around the central axe, placing it by diagonal line.
Using the Free Transform option, try to stretch the ornament by diagonal line and compress it in a line:
Switch between Free transform and Warp modes regime.
Create a new layer which must be processed with the usual Brush Tool (B) that’ll help in drawing a line of yellow color:
Keep pressed Alt button while making a mouse click between the brush’s layers and the ornament’s layer (on the layers’ palette):
The layer’s parameters: Blending mode-Difference
Make a copy of the last made layer, press Alt button and click between the previous layer and the copy’s layer:
Select next demonstrated parameters: Blending mode-Darken
Create a new layer and apply here the standard brush mentioned above to represent a line of green color:
Using the same method, press again Alt button while clicking between the layers:
Select next layer’s parameters: Blending mode-Color
On the next new layer (Create new layer) we’ll apply the brush for drawing the line of blue color:
Press Alt button while making a mouse click between the layers on the layers’ palette:
The layer’s parameters: Blending mode-Lighten
Make a copy of the last made layer and keep pressed Alt button when making a mouse click between the previous layer and the copy’s layer:
These are the parameters for the last made layer: Blending mode-Color Burn
Next click on the bottom part of the layers’ palette on the selection Create new fill or adjustment layer>Curves
Next we’ll represent some paths composing an ornament by outlining for the beginning their directions. In this case we’ll apply the Pen Tool (P) (Path mode), press ESC button after each path to begin to draw another path
Now we’ll represent a new layer and select for it a standard brush of #498BA5 color (Diameter 9, Hardness 100%). Click on the Paths Palette use the Direct Selection Tool (A) to select one of the created paths and then change the tool on the Pen Tool (P) and make a right click on the selected path to use Stroke Subpath with Brush and Simulate Pressure options:
This way we have to represent two more lines composing the ornaments:
Select for the lines’ layers the same parameters shown below: Blending Options>Outer Glow
Blending Options>Color Overlay
Download out a set of ready to use brushes for Adobe Photoshop, named 61Particlesandstars. Then we’ll create a new layer and choose for it the brush out of the downloaded set. This time the brush has white color:
Let’s represent now several sparks around the illuminating ornament’s lines:
