Purely work in progress, i can’t seem to get this looking like it should. The shot itself doesn’t seem to have any depth to it and i swear it’s the wrong colour.
Here is a second version which i focused more on the shape of it
(tried to forget about shading and focus purely on the blast itself)
The only reference image i could find was
( Forget about the three red dots, for 1, the place they originate is behind hair so i couldn’t be bothered and 2, it’s about the blast! )
Here is the original if anyone else wants to play around with it http://www.cubeupload.com/files/9f1000deforest0004.jpg
for the colouring of the shot, and it’s an impact too so that doesn’t help.
Does anyone have any tips on how to create the effect a little more effectively?
