So I decided to make my own spotlight instead of just downloading one from google images. For the light fixture I use an arrow point, for the light bulb I used a mardi gras bead. For the light beam, I used path to make the main shape. After filling and blurring, I went back and did a line down the center and blurred. Any suggestions to make it better??

looks dang good to me. What a nice idea to use the white bead for the light. very real looking too. woo hoo :coolthup

EDIT: 2-ton, just got an idea. You could make the animated dancers and put them inside that light.
:coolguy that would be way cool.

Looks great. Maybe try it without blur around the bottom white ellipse on the floor?

Excellent, 2-Ton. I agree with Jolie about the ellipse on the floor. Guess those mardi gras beads are useful for other stuff too. Great use of one. :-D

Urm, didn't save as xcf, so I could only un-blur the bottom of the 'spot'. I wonder ... any suggestions on how to make a smoky look to the light as if the air was dusty or something?

Messed around with some smoke brushes.

The image really needs to be in layers to do a proper job. You may need to start again Toni.

I put a new white ellipse over the spot and lowered the opacity a bit.

The white circle should revolve with a statue or something on it... that would be cool too.
