heh, this is great. I just started a star wars art jam and this makes things alot easier to do lightsabers. I tried before and took ages trying to get a laser effect right.

I used your Tut here [link] . I had a little trouble with it... How do you get your lines so solid? Mine weren't as defined.

Thanks,

well if your line has to be vertical or horizontal you can press shift and then draw the line and it will make it straight, otherwise for the pic you showed me I think you'll have to press shift and then click on where you want the line to begin and then click again where you want it to end and it will make the line solid and perfectly straight , but you'll have to adjust the size of the brush to your needs :)

if you need any more help or have any more questions, feel free to ask :)
oh and btw, your picture looks awesome, nice job :clap:

O.o That's a different way. Although that could just be because I'm obsessed with over-done shine-y things

excellentness - I was trying [and failing] to render lazer blasts the other week, and as lazer blasts are quite similar to light sabreness i imagine this will be quite helpful :)
