View Full Version : lights wall + city lights brushe sets

04 April 2008, 07:47 PM

I've tried in vain to search on google+deviantart+this forum to find brushe sets in order to create lights wall and city lights as the Dusso works below.
Ok i know hat i can do it spot by spot with the basic soft forms of photoshop but i am sure that there are sets for cities and walls.

Help me thanks a lot

ha yeah right! but seriously what are you looking to do? create lights? or a brush to create a city...... dusso and dylan cole has some good dvd's out on creating matte paintings. those teach how it is done and just so you know it is not a brush that does the work

no no i know how to create a city, but thanks for this first answer =)

I just want to simplfy my work when creating lights.
-Example 1: instead to create light by light a building facade into counterlight or a cityscape in night i just expect to find a brush to draw "fields of light" with a lot of spots with little variations, not regular etc....
-Example 2: for a wall if there is a projector lighting it partially, it will create a light area. Instead of drawing first the lightspot and then the lighted area of the wall, i expect a brush to both add a light plus its lighted area
-Example 3: a projector in an foggy place (atmosphere). Instead of creating first the lightspot and then the lighted atmosphere (ray) i expect a brush to create all of that at once.

Thus i am not searching for city shapes or wall shape brushes but really light FX brushes, allowing to have preconfigured fx for lights on wall or building facades or city in night.

Hope it is more clear

actually look into the 'glow brush in painter' ryan church does what you are talking about well in painter..... also a simple hard round change the scattering apply that on a new layer add a little glow and blur then erase with low opasity over that to make it more random. adjust levels and add unsharp mask..... there you have it quick lights
that is an example above

Thanks a lot i will try that. :)
But it's strange that no brushes like that already exist
