Day 9 - Q is for quasar

It's another SF ABC for naarmamo today.

Q is for quasar

Technical notes: The quasar isn't that wonderful, but the lettering makes up for it. I discovered that I can get lots of unpredictable (to me anyway) effects by playing with gradients on the lettering depending on the gradient, gradient colours, blend mode (burn, screen, add, subtract, anything but normal), base colour of the lettering, and how much I moved the cursor. I used "spiral" here, but "shaped (spherical)" actually gives the letters a border and sometimes other internal effects.

My NaArMaMo 2010 Gallery is here and my SF ABC Gallery is here.
