OSL painting guide: This is a quick tutorial on how to paint OSL, that is creating light effects from object source lighting (OSL). OSL painting can be achieved by drybrushing, glazing or using an airbrush.
When light shines on an area, if that light is stronger than the surrounding light, the colour area will become lighter, and unless the light is white, it will also change colour. This is how you paint the glow effect on miniatures.
