Smoke help requested.

6 posts in this topic

So I am trying something new here. I got Ghostly Summons and was attempting to do whipped bluish smoke. Nope. Didn't work out. So does anyone have a technique or a tutorial on how?

I tried a similar effect using black instead of blue, so I started with a grey basecoat & kept drybrushing each layer with a lighter shade, made by adding a little white to the previous shade. I then hit it with a thin black wash to give it some more definition.

I'm tending to think that if you follow a similar process using a light blue and keep adding white & use a blue wash, it may work.

I have an idea for doing this mini my self but I am up in the air about getting the mini at all at this point since I don't know how big the base is, I found that it is two and a half inches tall which is a good height but when I'm playing DnD is it going to take up one square or four.

if any of you painting it are able to let me know the diameter of the base that would be grate.

(edit: judging form the pictures and the information i know about this mini already the pictures how it at two to four times its size so I'm estimating that diameter is half and inch or so, can I get confirmation on this?)

 

once I get it, if I get it, I will be adding the photos of it as well.

the color seam i was going to use my self was a white primmer for the base, for the smoke areas have a heavy gray with fades of black and white in it to make it look natal as if it's from a camp fire. For the three women I am feeling a vary light blue and making it look like there skin is almost iced over to give it the appearance that there hugging each other for worth that can not be found in death.
