Glowing tail/ comet launching from planet (video)

Recommended Posts


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":

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:

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.
