Here's a video tutorial of someone doing tron-textures in Blender.


The first 3 parts of the tutorial are the relevant parts (unwrapping a model and painting a texture on it), Part 4 starts going into Blender's node system, which you won't be using if you're using a different game engine.

Here is a good tutorial by Andrew Price to get you started.

It's not tron related. But it's a neon sign tutorial –  Dan the Man Oct 11 '11 at 19:17
