Launching Stormboy Painted

This last week I have been painting the Stormboy who has just lifted off from the take-off ramp. I was looking forward to painting this, firstly to see how the smoke trail was going to turn out and secondly to have my first attempt at using a technique called OSL. OSL or object source lighting is where the reflected colours are painted on to areas surrounding a light source giving the illusion of a glowing light. The effect is mostĀ noticeableĀ in the final photo of this post. Overall I’m very pleased with how it all turned out.
