Question
Hello,
I.m hoping to create an image of a glowing building in a dark night sky. The image of the building I will be using is a line drawing that I will be rendering in Photoshop. Any help or on line direction to tutorial would be appreciated.

This is the type of light I,m trying to create.

Answer
Tough call with a line drawing. First you need to color it in. Then you can take selected portions—such as windows or background—and increase the brightness. With good selections or paths and keeping everything in layers, you can pull it off. But coloring in the line drawing will be the hardest part. If you have experience with painting, it should be easier. Sorry, I can't offer much else.
