Source Lighting

This is a very useful technique for figuring out where to highlight or to paint source lighting..

If you want to know where to highlight a mini, or need to paint the light of a blazing fire on some armour or such, This is how you do it.

First, Buy a sunlamp like this one.

Then, Shape it like so:

Place a white cap on it (GW primer works perfectly) and turn it on.

Place a mini on it and see where the light hits it. (works better without a base.)

You can also tape the cap to it and face it down at a model for different angles.

note:- In the interest of safety remove the cap as soon as you’ve taken a photo or worked out the light angles. [Forum discussion of this tutorial]
