Nope - I think he was a bit shy. Come on, Nick, reveal those sensational legs!

Hi Jaidyn,

I had the same issue when I was still an "orbling" (= learning how to make an orb ;-D ).
Archie helped me - have a look at his post over here; you can also download a PSD file which will show you what the layers look like, then you'll see how you need to proceed:
Custom Made Sig and Avatar [6]

Looking at your orb in Archie's sig (very nice work, by the way), you'd just have to create a new layer, place an oval-shaped selection over the upper part of the orb, drag a gradient (white to transparent) over it, then give it a Gaussian Blur of about 2 px.

Made a few pictures of this procedure in Photoshop Elements. Tip: press the Shift button on your keyboard when using the gradient tool - this will make make the gradient perfectly straight.

Thanks for that Athene. As always, this is a great mini-tut.

However, I've so far been able to make the orb using the gradients and ellipses. I have a 3 or so on my orb with the opacity lowered so it isn't too shocking bright. What I was really curious about was how to make an orb particularly glassy like the one in Dennis' sig (here).

Thank you all the same, I appreciate you help.
