Create a space warp implosion in Photoshop


06 To add glowing lights use a brush to draw lines freehand at 100% opacity. To twist them, use the Warp tool: Ctrl/right-click on the layer with the Marquee tool, twice. Paint each line on a separate layer before merging them all together. Then duplicate that layer, add some Gaussian blur (Filters>Blur>Gaussian Blur) and lower it to 30% opacity before merging them again. Here I like to rotate the layer to find a good spot for the lines to be placed. You can also twist them all together now with the Warp tool to give them a bit of motion. Some radial blur on this layer might create a nice effect too.
