i wish to create a halo behind one of my characters but i don’t know how to do it. i tried the halo button but it does not give me the effect i want.

Do you mean that the light shouldn´t go through him, instead showing his contour? If that is what you want then you need to mess with the samples and steps.

Please give us a little more info, of what you are trying to achieve.

Is it just a single halo, like a “lightglow” thing?

I want a light glowing from behind like the whole spiritual thing.kinda like this one.


Then you have to play with Photoshop or Gimp.

I belive the effect you’re looking is called glow. Try working with blender nodes to get the effect.
