I recorded this video on OSL yesterday and I feel like I just touched on the subject. Sure, you get to see how I approached this model's glow, but the subject itself is pretty huge.
One of the cool things about doing the videos is it forces me to really think about what I'm doing - and that's not something I do on my own. When I'm painting my thought processes aren't really analytical. I'm mostly just feeling around for what I want to do next. I don't always consider why I think something looks better one way vs another way. It just does. At least to me.
One thing to note here is that this model (and many of the models I've painted in the last week or so) were painted primarily with Warcolours paints. You might recall that I did a review of them recently. Well, I'm still using them and I still love them. They fit with my painting style (layering and glazes) perfectly. It's the first paint brand that I felt like I wanted to just go ahead and buy the entire range.
