    Advice needed to redraw light lines

    I'm a newbie cleaner, so I have very little knowledge about photoshop and it's various tools.
    So far I've been having trouble redrawing.

    Here's an image of the page I'm trying to finish:


    I only need to redraw the light lines on the bottom left corner. But I have no idea how to do that.

    Could I get some tips on which tools I should be using?
    I tried using the line tool but the line is completely solid and it seems like I need to get the lines to fade out.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would cut out a piece with the lines which are good (the ones to the right of the guy), then rotate paste on the left and erase what comes over the border.

    To get lines to fade out select the line tool then look for the "weight:" box.
    To the left of it should be a small drop down arrow.
    Check "END"
    Set Width to 100%, Length to 2000% or 3000%(depends on the weight of the line), and Concavity to 50%.

    also if your going to draw each line, you should probably do it on a separate layer and start every line from the same point. Then just erase whatever's overlapping the line art. Otherwise the lines are going to begin from random directions and look weird.

    u mean above his head right u can see the greys where u cloned clearly

    you should use the lines with arrow heads like benii descriped these will be saved in layers of their own from what i see u should change the thickness of the lines a bit as the others did it too

    and for the white area you can use the brush with a lower opacity and there are different setting / kinds of brushes too
