I am showing a portion of the background for my current cartoon project. Like my ATC project, I am going to attempt to copy the photoshop lighting application to jpeg. I will then attempt to draw it freehand. This supernova will be considerably harder to duplicate than the lighting effect for the ATC. There will be a lot of trial and error and hopefully not too much cussing. For those familiar with my work, it is obvious to see that I like to use black as a background. I just think it makes the colors look cool and exciting. I am a weirdo though, and that is my distorted viewpoint. Anyway, I hope to pull off this attempt to draw lighting effects freehand. I really want to eventually ween myself from the gimmickry.
