Hello!

I stumbled upon this picture and caught my interest.

I've been fooling around in PS but can't figure out how to create the spikes that is the base in the letters. The more central the spikes go, the thicker they get.
I found out that using Gradient tool - > Filter / Disort / Wave - > Filter / Disort / Polar Coordinates gets me pretty close to what I want to achieve.

Now to my problems: First, I want a lot more spikes, similar to my inspiration picture.
Second is that the white doesn't stay transparent after the effects

Anyone that have any tips ;)

EDIT: If it's better to make it in Illustrator, then I'm up for that!

Sam's procedure will work but I would also like to add....

1. Create the spoke circle on a large document (2000 x 2000 at 150pxls). This way you end up with a small intersection center spot and no need to resize it as it will become heavily pixelated if you do. It's even better to create this in Illustrator (If you can) as the output is much crisper and import the AI file into PS.

2. As a variation of Sam's procedure in the posted thread link..... rather than create a "second hand" line, create a full line from top to bottom and continue on with the rest of his procedure......

... just my 2 sens... :cheesygrin:
