Materials With Halo

I been messing around with materials on Blender, and made these pictures I thought were pretty neat looking:

I was experimenting with the halo feature on the materials window to make this picture. I only had the default cube and camera position. I just increased the halo size, and added rings.

I actually made this picture with just one vertex! Again, I increased the halo size, and added lines.

I used the same vertex. I just decreased the halo size and made the star size to 4. That might make a nice "Star of Bethlehem" for a picture someday.

Let me know if any of you want a more "in depth" description of how I made these pictures. I'm not actually quite sure how I made them myself! Hopefully I can make some more interesting stuff soon.

Those look pretty cool! I like the second one. The last one does look like a good Star of Bethlehem. I made a Star of Bethlehem for my 2006 Christmas picture. I like your star better though.

In reply to your comment on my blog:
You've never tried burning ants with a magnifying glass!? You should try it someday. If you hold it just right you can make a little bright spot that can get very hot. Don't stick you finger under there. It can get hot enough to burn ants or catch dead grass on fire.

I would like a VERY detailed description on how to do this. I mean, explain it to me like I am a 2 year old.
