How to draw a lightsaber</a>

The main attribute of the players of the popular computer game "Star Wars" is a lightsaber.

If you want to create a picture or photo with a light sword, use Photoshop.

It will take you a few minutes, but you will definitely be pleased with the result.



To implement the idea, take a photo of the heroes who hold the arms with the swords coming out of them. It is this photo that will be used to further create the light sword.


First, create a new layer in Photoshop thatName "Blade". Place it above the picture and fill it completely with black. Now change its type to "Screen". After that, the black color should turn to transparent.


Then set the white color and select the tool"Line". The thickness of the line is equal to one third of the width of the blade and click "Create Filled Region". This is done so that Photoshop does not generate a vector object, instead, it immediately draws a line on the layer. Focusing on the image on the photo, draw a line, which in the future will be a blade. After that, blur it with a "Gaussian blur" filter, the radius of which is equal to the width of the line. In the "Adjust Levels" menu item, change the input levels: the upper level to 48, and the lower one to 32.


After that, use the black brush to correct the shape of the blade in such a way that it looks the most realistic. Now start creating a color aura.


Right-click the layer name in the panel"Layers" and select "Duplicate level". Enter the name "Aura1". Blur it with a Gaussian blur filter with a radius of the blade line width. Again change the input levels: the upper one to 64, and the lower one to 48. Now, again, blur the line with the same filter.


Click "Duplicate level" again and name the new layer "Aura2". The input levels are set to the same values ​​(64 and 48). Now, blur the line with a filter with a radius equal to two lines of the blade.


Then paint the aura. To do this, set each layer of the aura in the "Adjust Levels" menu to the upper value (Output Levels) for RGB equal to 127, and for other channels - the values ​​that correspond to the selected color.
Finally, wash the first layer of the "Blade" with a "Gaussian blur" filter. Radius, choose an equal 1/3 - 1/4 of the width of the blade line.
