Starburst Effect

in General Discussion edited January 2014

Hello Forum!


How would you go about producing this starburst effect in Adobe Illustrator or photoshop?



If you give me a good solution, you might be contributing to a memorable digital Christmas Card.

    That particular effect looks like a bitmap photograph of a paint splotch has been entered into Illustrator and Live Traced with… oh, I’ll say five steps of gradient done to it.


    As for creating the initial image, that could even be done in Photoshop with a paint splotch brush (thousands available for download on PS utility sites), which, really, would be able to create the end product on its own.
