In this week’s Pixel Playground technique, Bert Monroy shows us how to create a neon light tube. He begins by meticulously choosing the proper size of his brush, and then paints in a solid color for the base of the tube. Next, with the addition of a few layers effects, the tube gets some depth. From there he lowers the transparency and paints in a few areas to add realism. Finally, he brushes in some debris at the end of the tube to give a realistic neon-tube look, and complete the piece. Bert even throws in a bonus technique at the end to show us how to create the connector for the neon tube.
