laser shots


Recommended Posts

The trick with lasers and lightsabers is that the center is white and the glow is colored, not the other way around.  Create a thick white line on its own layer, then duplicate that layer.  On the bottom layer, flood fill the white line with whatever color you want the laser to be, then run Gaussian Blur at a very high value.  If you mess around with some layer blend modes, you'll be able to get a nice realistic-looking effect.

 

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.

There are a couple of really old ones (most have missing images), but I'm not aware of any current ones.  I did a search on http://searchpaint.net but came up empty.
