Glowing Sphere/Orb


Recommended Posts

Try to play around with the 'curves' adjustment ^^ (Especially with the luminosity)


Oh ok, thanks

I'm starting to get a few successes here. My only problem is too make it dark enough that a large portion of black still shows and bright enough that it isn't a pale color in the end.

This is my result.

Seems like purple/violet is a popular color hereorb6_zpscc418775.png

My original intent with the darkness of it was to make it have darkness, as that was the point of the picture - a glowing sphere in the dark. You could also up the AA on a few steps, with a gaussian blur or feather. Shape 3D also has AA, turn it up to 5 after you've got it how you want it, before you render it. I'll make a video later, so that I'm sure I haven't skipped any steps.

The hardest part of ending is starting again.

I like how the white almost looks like a woman's face (purple being her lips, green being her hair).  Very nice.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Nice tutorial, I liked how it put gravity to use as I haven't explored that plugin much yet.

Here is my result! :)

@ Trax, do you still need help or did you figure things out?
