Anyway, here it is. Hope you like it.

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:

You still remember that ? If there is a bit of my contribution in your learning process, I am glad that I had a role in the making of a great designer !!

Thanks for the compliment, Archie :-) "I'm cursed with a photographic memory" as Mulder from the X-Files says - that, and I remember those who are kind and have helped or guided me :-)

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.

The answer is easy - ask my hubby Nick ;-)) He created Dennis's sig and he's an orb crack :-D
