I Nikki, Thanks for sharing this tut.
I got a question for you. Why you use a falloff curve with fresnel and not a simple perpendicular parallel falloff for the self illumination?
Is not like apply two curves to the falloff? one the fresnel and one the other that you modified?
I am totally impressed by your post. I am looking for your more updates. Keep them coming
nice tutorial Nikki, but i cant figure out what is the second pattern( is it the same or not) and how did you overlay it with pattern 1 (did you also scaled it by 400%). If you could explain it little more, it would be great. Also thanks for great resources and usefull tricks.
