Modelling a Jet Thrust/Smoke Effect for a Model Base

Hi all,

Long time, no post!!  Hope you are all well 😉

Life has been busy, busy, busy, but I have been working on my models… I have also got round to documenting my tutorial/technique for making a JetThrust/Smoke Effect for a Model Base for the StormRaven model (as well as the StormTalon)

WIP ‘Large Delivery’

I’m currently planning on drawing/colouring a spacecraft, so just to make sure I got all the proportions correct, I have created the 3D shape and scene in SketchUp first.  I’m then using this image as a trace for the outline, and then I can add all the glitz to it…

“You are mine…”

You are mineWell, now I have the Intuos5 (at last), I have decided to give it an ArtRage 4 trial and learn some colouring/shading with both software and hardware…

So here is “You are mine…”, a space marine on a desolate fiery world, meets his adversary. Enjoy

Terminator – WH40k

I used this Terminator to experiment with two-brush blending, and OSL effects.  Not to mention copious green stuff and old plasterboard for the diorama.  In fact, the last incarnation has a tentacle coming through the door dripping with slime… I must find that and update blog.
