I need to make a glow effect around the brush (see attached).
I have attempted this in Adobe Illustrator (using the "Outer Glow" effect) but I am distinctly underwhelmed by the results.
Can anyone suggest techniques in Photoshop that might give me better results. Essentially I am looking for a very strong/vibrant glow effect that really jumps out at you.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
Duplicate the brush lashes, blur them slightly, use blending modes like Add or Screen... Rinse repeat with as many layers as you may need.
