…and this is the initial result.

I also found a very useful article on how to produce brick textures fairly quickly, which I’ve cited it below, along with an article that told me how to create the lightening ball, however, when I was rendering the plasma ball it wouldn’t appear, so I converted the paint effect to a polygon which resulted in a big glowing blob. I went back to the previous file, lessened the glow, and converted it again, which resulted in a nice level of glow for the plasma, then I imported the scientist.

Tests:

Tweaking:
