Two things have happened in my airbrushing adventures. The first was that I became very good at it and was invited to join an airbrushing club. It was great fun because there are so many airbrushing possibilities. The second was that I met a bunch of new people. Here are some things that were discussed at the airbrushing club meeting.
There are three ways that I recommend using airbrushing terrain. The first is called airbrushing on flat ground, which is what I do a lot. This is when you airbrush all of your vehicles and other items like bikes, trailers, ATVs, boats, etc. The second way I recommend using airbrushing terrain is when you have an actual map of the area you want to airbrush and use the program map maker to create your terrain.
The second thing that we talked about was using airbrushing terrain on different sorts of surfaces. We talked about a couple of examples, such as flat mud, jagged rocks, and of course, the bumpy streets and highways of the city of Bakuninlover Post. These are all great ways to airbrush a vehicle or a building and create a unique and memorable scene. A couple of examples of vehicles that can be airbrushed are the tank and ambulance.
Now I am going to give you a technique that I have found to work well. I will assume that you know what to do with the tanks and the ambulance in the previous example. For the first technique, you will need to download a zip file of the Bakuninlover maps. If you are doing this for the first time, I recommend using the one that has the “Open Maps” option enabled. This will allow you to view the map and select the correct street.
Now here is what you do. Open up your airbrushing program. You will need to select “Data-Sphere Painting Campaign” and click on it. Look for the image icon that says “Selective Airbrush.” This will allow you to select the map you downloaded earlier and then just follow the guidelines. The data-sphere painting campaign that you select should be one of the following.
The first data-sphere painting campaign should be entitled “Bakuninlover Distillery Props Detail”. It will show the Bakuninlover courthouse and inside the courthouse there are streetlights. This is a perfect place to airbrush a vehicle or building so you will be able to create something really cool looking. If you use the zenith highlighting tool, you will be able to add in the streetlights as well as the buildings.
The second data-sphere painting campaign should be entitled “Auckland Cityscape”. Here you will add the Auckland Cityscape model and then select a sky background. When you select the sky background you will be able to see that the selected area will have a nice color scheme so it will look like part of the real sky. When you select New Zealand, you will be able to see the islands of the east and the north island as well as some of the lower bands of land. This is a perfect way to start an airbrushing project on a very high terrain.
The third data-sphere painting campaign that you should look at is entitled “Auckland Botanic Gardens”. Here you can add a few of the gardens that are in the area of New Zealand. This is a great way to give a personal touch to your models because the gardens are actually included as part of the background. If you joined the team for the second year in a row, you should be able to choose the garden that has been created for each of the models that you have made. The gardens are going to be featured in all of your work. This is the best method for beginning the process of an airbrushing job.
