bling effect

Discussion in 'Corel' started by langecustomgraphics, Nov 8, 2007.

  1. I am using X3 and I am wondering what is the best way to add "bling" to objects. What I am thinking of looks kind of like a thin, long star and you would use it to highlight chrome. Any tips on this would be appreciated.

    In the polygon tool flyout, there is the complex star option, use that, tweak with node editing, add your desired fill color.
    Cheers!

    Yeah similar to that..you need to be discerning how you place those stars though..they should all be oriented the same way relative to the text and light source..

    You could rotate some of the stars so they are not all the same.
    I think you have too many.
    Looks good though.
    Cheers!

    Way too many stars. Two, maybe three max. Rotate them and make them all slightly different sizes. Standing straight up and down like you have them looks impossibly formal.

    Actually, you have a few on the leading edge of the letters and most on the back side. Less is more - think about shinning a flashlight on the text - you will get "stars" on one side of the letter, unless the light source was directly in front of it, but your shadow implies differently.
