Shiny Glass Balls


Recommended Posts

Helen's the queen of shiny etheral images but I will give it a shot.


For globes I use my FishEye Plugin 


*When merging layers start at the bottom first!! 



The reflection patterns can be played with by adding more layers with Screen, Glow and lighten mode. There are really no rules on the reflection gradients

Awesome tut! It's interesting to see the method you used to create your glossy. Love it how you also use the transparency mode rather than the Wet Floor Reflection plugin to create the reflection.
