OLS Converted Vermin Lord

I'm clearly not the only one whose been following the great tutorials Ron FTW has been posting up on Object Light Sourcing:
Obviously I wanted a go! Now being me I didn't decide to do any practice, no small eyes or sensible details to get the hang.. I decided to go and put it on my Vermin lord with both the sword blade and the skulls as glowing sources. They are inversely highlighted with the light smudges mainly belnded in with slightly different effects for the different textures the light fell on. I imagined an oval sphere around the sword to decide what the light touched and I tried to keep its influence even. I'd love some feedback and any tips for improvement! Heres what I've come up with so far:


  1. Mind if I use this in my next OSL post?
    i'd like to show how people go about applying th techniqu to a model overall.

  2. You certainly may! I'd love to be able to use the feedback to improve it. Really appreciate it!

  3. that is fantastic! Quite wishing I had your painting talents! Though I must admit, you've inspired me to have a go on using this technique on my flame-wielding zealot :)

  4. BOOM!!

    Nice man, that looks f'ing amazing! Best vermin lord, ever.

  5. Thanks Guys, really appreciate it.

    Harris I'm looking forward to seeing your zealot!
