Neon Tube
[Image: neonm.png]

Uploaded with ImageShack.us preview =D


1. start out with a blank canvas, I would recommend a large size when you are just learning.

2. I forget this a lot and it makes it harder, but doesn't affect final product. Change your palate color to something that will show up on black.

3. Take and make a path that you like, and then stroke path with a 2 pixel wide brush stroke.

4. Make a new layer, and then select that layer and stroke path again but this time with a 6 pixel wide path with a neon blue type color, or something else that is neon like.

5. Then select the 6 pixel wide path with, alpha to selection on that layer, and the Filters, Blurs, Gaussian Blur, and then use a setting near 10 and 10 I think... doing from memory sorry, but use whatever you think makes it look good.

6. Save your file, and upload it to your favorite Image Hosting site, and post it here for us to see.

Good Luck, will be making more tutorials when I think of more useful things

Dude that is pretty cool, this was really just meant to show people how it can be done, and leave it pretty open so that they can do whatever they want to... So glad to know that it helped you out =D

I don't think there is such a thing as cheating in art. If it looks they way you want it to look, then however you got it that way is the right way. Smile
