Glowy Eye tut by The-Nezumi Glowy Eye tut by The-Nezumi
READ THIS TOO!!!

It's taken a while to get around to but it's finally here.
It makes sense to me,but I've never done a tut before.So if you're feeling a bit lost,be free to give me a shout.

Basically for the Gradient at C.The light is striking the raised edge.So it's brightest there and goes down at a gradient until it blends to the colour of the helmet.

Also this might be usefull for gradients:

I had some success using sharpie pens (that ones made for writing in CDs) too, bad that my camera sucks at close range macro shots =D

Yap, they are thinner than the brushes and fit better between parts... but require a steady hand or your miniature will get a "scar" =D

Are you aware, that a glow spreads as rays, not as bubble? So the eyes can never shine on the "upper lid" of the helmet. And the plamsa accelerator cannot shine on the casing of the weapon.

Nice turorial tough. I will try that.

It is a good tutorial and, actually, a glow can spread somewhat beyond the straight line thanks to reflection from the cheeks below the eye. However, broadly you're dead right. The glow is good but shouldn't extend so far up above the eye.

You're right, light can be "bent" around edges. Anyway, that would barelly be visible at day, as that are eyes, not floodlights.
