    For jvarnes 🙂

    So.
    Requirements:
    – a Character who needs a Lighting bolt effect 🙂
    – Program what can handle layers (preferably Photoshop)
    – A lighting bolt png or brush. I used this one for my tutorial: Click here

    At first i made a character (she is a random)

    Then on NEW LAYER i put some lighting, where i want. The new layer is important

    I DODGED the lighting for making high neon effect

    ANOTHER NEW LAYER, took a soft rounded brush (its around 100 px), SAME colour like the lighting, but SCREEN brush settings, i made some blobs, and stuff (the “shadow” part)

    i set the layer “soft light”, and put between the character and lighting bolt.
    also made some little spot to the character’s hand, without any reason 🙂

    The lighting effect as png (feel free to use)

    two optional little thing:
    i duplicated the merged layers, and set the new layer soft light around 25%
    merged again, and put a “smart sharpen” to it
