Wanted to take a shot at having Trypticon with some "lit up" effects, facing off against Metroplex... this is the result:

Well - the glow effects, specifically, were a matter of:

- Copy-and-pasting the areas I wanted to "light up" to their own layers and then re-aligning the layers to their original positions

- Tweaking the brightness/contrast of the "glow layers" to look... well, brighter and "lighty"

- Adding an "outer glow" layer effect - in a matching color - and adjusting till it looked right.

The rest of it was simple (but finicky) composition of the skyline (1) and the "kludged" ground (2)

(1) Which was actually a dusky skyline pic taken from my back deck - flipped upside down to give a (imo) bit of a surreally early-morningish vibe

(2) This was the cloth used as the ground in the original/basic shot of Tryp and Metro with a bunch of various filters applied to it till it looked a little less... clothy
