How to make a tapered brush for Light Beam

Aug 3, 2012 3:24 PM

Tags: #cs6 #brushes #light #tapered #beam

I know there are many ways to create light beams or God beams.

There are several tutorials and net has many brushes.

I just want to make a simple tapered brush in Photoshop CS6 so that If I click at a source like window then shift click at another place I get a 'tapered' beam, smaller at origin and flaring to larger size, like a flashlight beam

It should be easy with shape dynamics and all, but I am not able to figure this out.

Any help will be very much appreciated

    One way is to use a soft round brush, set the shape dynamics>size jitter to fade.

    You'll have to play with the settings depending on the brush size and length of the stroke you want.

    Also the brush spacing makes a difference on the taper.
