yeah..i see what you mean. it actually isnt even a glow, its a stock photo i overlayed, then tweaked the settings to make it have the look of a shine/glow, then added a white blurred brush overlay over that to make it bling.
heres the stock photo i used for the shine effect on the ball:
so i went in and erased the stock photo around his hand....look any better?
thanks for the comments joel
