currently I'm creating concept art for a mod (pc game modification).
Could you help me in creating (showing me how to) a glowing tail similiar to a coment tail with paint?
I found a perfect example in the movie "Starship Troopers": https://youtu.be/8Rx8_vjbXX4?t=2m11s
I need them to start from a planet in different states (starting, in the middle, reaching the target), they are aiming for space ships.
Maybe from this one: http://www.tokkoro.com/picsup/2859104-earth-space-moon-planet___cosmos-space-wallpapers.jpg
What I have done so far:
#1 With gradient tool I managed to make a "beam" but it is to straight.
#2 Starting "beams"
Would be awesome if you could give me some hints or ideas
Thank you very much.
