    Well, I'm usually a very touchy-feely kind of photoshopper, so I do a lot of fussing and messing with lighting things like glows, so I may not be able to describe it in a way that actually works the first time. But I'll try.

    If you want a specifically colored glow (like what you have here), I would start with a clean layer and a super soft brush (I like 0%) with the base color selected (in this case, your darkish purple) and just tap it once over the eye. Then turn down the layer opacity to something like 40% (shot in the dark, you'll want to set it to whatever looks best to you). Then make a new layer, and set the layer blend mode to overlay. Then select a tone midway between your base color and white and tap another soft brush that's slightly smaller on top of the first layer.

    Here's where I'd start fiddling with it to get it to look right. Changing layer opacities, blends, erasing spots, etc. Best thing to do is to duplicate your layers you've just made so that you have the originals, turn off the visibility of the originals, and use the duplicates to fiddle with. One thing that I'll often do is duplicate the overlay layer, so that it's brighter and higher contrast. You can also take a very small, slightly harder white brush on another layer set to overlay and brush in a spot where the glow is originating from (see the center of the eyes on my last wallpaper).

    Hope that helps!

    I find myself in need to help again. Now that AGDQ 2013 is over, I whipped up a new sig but it's somewhere around 100kb in size after a .png optimization, and I need some help to get it reduced below 50 kb. You'll need a .pspimage-capable editor to open this file: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/745142/Zeratul.pspimage

    Preview:


    If reducing it past 50kb isn't feasible without a large loss in quality, let me know and I'll ... think of something else?

    Any reason it has to be PNG? PNGs are naturally larger than JPGs, if I remember correctly. Only reason to use PNG that I can think of is for transparency, which this doesn't seem to have. Also, I don't have a .pspimage capable editor, apparently, so I can't help you myself. If you save it out to a Photoshop-friendly format, I can see what I can do with it.

    Now that you mention it I feel dumb for not trying a .jpg save. I can't seem to get the lossless .jpg to work on PSP 9 though - still, either .png or lossless .jpg works. I've saved a .psd file and you can get it here; send me a PM if it doesn't work.

    Signature:
    Visible text: Just my main character's name "Ademptio"
    Armory link/Facial screenshot: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/characte...demptio/simple
    Gear set: Was thinking of Tier 11 (normal/blue) with a typical cold/blue Death Knight background. OR if you want to go red and bloody I just collected my warrior tier 13 in game and it looks pretty awesome. Problem would be how can you make me wear a warrior tier while still showing I am a DK (Frostwyrm on background? Something like that.)
    Helm visible: yes
    Your pose: Nothing special, imitimidating?
    General colour scheme: Blue to go with Tier 11 or Red to go with warrior (Deathwing look) Tier 13
    Any extras: Depends on the one the artist wants to make (or both ofcourse I dont mind at all *happy smile*)

    Free to PM any questions ^^

    Thanks in advance =)

    Here ya go. I started my graphics adventure in PSP 7! I got my first one off of Ebay and started making glitter names and blinkies for a mommy forum. Then they started a Photoshop "class" and I wanted to see what the hubbub was about and the differences between the two programs. Since then I've stuck with Photoshop but still have and use my PSP 10. Glad to see someone still uses the program.

    Greatly appreciated. I never made the transition to PSP X after hearing bad reviews about how PSP X compared to PSP 9, but now that Adobe has made Photoshop CE 2.0 free to users I might have to start looking into Photoshop as an alternative for Paint Shop Pro.

    Finally done with my training for work (I hope... might have one more course to do)
    So I will try and knock out some requests I have this weekend (possibly tomorrow if they don't have me come in to the office)

    I'm still NOT opening my queue until I finish what I have on my plate, so PLEASE no PM's.
    Also, I should probably note that I may only take sig/banner requests when I do open back up.
    I'm getting pretty burnt out on Wallpapers right now.

    Requesting a Signature and a Twitch page! Thanks in advance to whoever takes these on. <3 Keep up the awesome work.

    Signature:
    Visible text: Raenii and my guild's name, Recursion.
    Armory link/Facial screenshot: http : // us . battle . net / wow / en / character / bleeding-hollow / Raenii / advanced
    Gear set: Transmog off the armory!
    Helm visible: No helm showing
    Your pose: Shooting her bow would be awesome.
    General colour scheme: I blueish red theme to match her tmog set would be perfect, however green would work as well since she is a hunter
    Any extras: Would love it if Loque'nahak was in the picture since it's the pet I always use.


    Twitch
    What you want for you page: I want to request the entire set.
    Visible text: I would love to display my guild's name, Recursion, as well as the server (Bleeding Hollow - US)
    Logo/Character: I dont have a logo, but I would love my hunter to be a part of the page. I would love if she was wearing her current tmog and if Loque'nahak was in the design aswell. http : // us . battle . net / wow / en / character / bleeding-hollow / Raenii / advanced
    General colour scheme: I would love a hunter-esque theme.
    Specifics/Extras: It would be awesome if it was in Ashenvale, because I love the colors in Ashenvale. I think it would match her set pretty well. Maybe by a lake.

    Requesting a signature/banner, not the usual char-post or anything, might need some leet artistic skills.
    I play so many characters, it'd be hard to contain them all within a signature, but, most of my character names are basically the same, Kaga.
    I'm a huge fan of troll artwork, particularly this peice, and was hoping to have a few items from the crest, essentially mounted/impaled on/strung up on a horizontal troll spear, with the items subtly shaping out the word KAGA. Hopefully not too, uhm, egotistic :P

    I do have an aweful sketch somewhere i could present if needed, of what i had in mind.
    Thanks!
