Airbrush Effects : Airbrush Effects: Lightning & Electricity


Hopefully you have been following along. This
right here I haven’t really shown anybody how to do this yet, this is just for this
effect. It is called lightening or electricity, basically the same thing. You need a black
background. You can use a dark color like a dark blue or dark purples or whatever to
create a lightening sky or something like that but I am going to use black right now
to show you the effect. You take your white and it is just like in the practice I just
showed you, you just find a spot to start and just jiggle and make it fat and skinny
and just lightening, you can never do lightening wrong. It doesn’t matter, it is all in the
effect that you appear or make appear. The biggest misconception that most artists do
whenever they are painting electricity is they think that is all they need to do. Well
electricity is also a light so you have got to make it glow and there is going to be hot
spots and there is going to be cold spots just like in a light bulb. So wherever the
main part is coming from, that’s a little too much, it is hot and then everywhere where
it breaks off, you want to make it a little highlight or a hot spot there too and then
make the whole thing kind of glow, just lightly go over the top of it. I mean you can come
back and you can do whatever. Just keep adding to it and nobody can tell you well that’s
not what lightening looks like. Everybody thinks lightening is white but honestly electricity
is blue. So you take your electricity and just give it a light, just a little bit, not
the whole thing but just give it a little bit of a blue tint and you have electricity.
Thank you.
