Gathering Strength -- Xaltius's Painting Log

Recommended Posts

With OSL you can do one of two things. One) you can use two shades of the same color, such as vallejo magic blue & ice blue, plus white for the source. Two) you can use just the core color and a white. Such as magic blue and regular white. 

The key is to add the lighter color or white after doing the original base OSL color. If your making a circle of glow the second color or lighter shade just needs to be smaller and the white itself (the source of the light) has to be just on the object or pinpoint of the glow. So if you have a gun turret that's glowing, I add the white only to the "muzzle" of the barrel and even then I only hit it a tiny bit. Then I use a paint brush and white and do just a dot of white at the point of the light.
