To pop an object from background to foreground a shadow can be used.
Here is my shadow on a new separate layer. It was created with reflected black to transparency gradient with a little bit of Gaussian blur
I will crop the image now.
pop the object even more I will use a Quick mask and use a rounded
REVERSE type black to white gradient with blending more set to PIN
And here what I’ve got.
Tap Q once again to exit the Q mask mode.
Add a color by adjusting the main layer (the one that has the colored object) with Saturation
Do not deselect the selection you got from the Qmask
Now we got to make the object to look like some kind of lamp. Select the lasso tool with these settings.
Make a selection.
Overlay the selection with black to whit gradient in this direction.
Now remember that shadow we have on the separate layer. Make a copy; Go to layer styles and make a White color overlay.
We got glow (or light) instead of a shadow now.
I’ve made several copies of the lights and drop them on the edges of the object.
Make such kind of selection using lasso tool.
Make a new layer.
Overlay the selected with white to transparency layer or just fill it with pure white color.
Drop an inner shadow using a layer styles.
color adjustments and we are ready here. I’ve made some text
and some design elements in the final version but the concept is here.
So, I hope you practice a lot on your long way as an artist, illustrator or whatever).
