As requested by a few over on Instagram, Facebook and Reddit, here is a brief step by step breakdown of how I approached my most recent attempt at energy weapon glow.
This step by step is a combination of techniques seen elsewhere (@elminiaturista over on Insta😉) and things learnt through trial/error.
I’ve kept it deliberately brief, and so concede there are likely to be areas that need more clarity and explanation. But I’m always happy to field any questions that may pop up, so feel free to drop them in the comments.
One area I haven’t mentioned is how I’ve applied the ‘cast’ light to the surrounding area. This is achieved by applying aethermatic blue and fluorescent green through the airbrush in a very deliberate direction manor. E.g Angling the brush to point in the direction of the cast light. If you’d like to know more about this, let me know.
Hope someone finds all this at least a little helpful. 👍
