Biotic effects tutorial by Sorceress-Nadira Biotic effects tutorial by Sorceress-Nadira
FOLLOW or REBLOG on Tumblr, thank You!

Please credit if You repost it anywhere :D
-----------------

It's my first tutorial ever, so forgive me if it's sloppy...
I titled it "ME fanart", but I believe the same technique can be used to any type of blue flames, magic blasts, etc, etc.

I wish You luck with making pics :) I'd be very happy to see how they came out, so please link me to them in comments!

And if You have any extra questions, please let me know as well!

Thane model by ~SumireHaikuXNA. posed in XNALara. Edits made in Photoshop CS3. Santa hat found on Google.
Thane belongs to BioWare.

I did this, and it was awful. I think it's largely because my art is awful in general.

Don't give up! I usually have to correct at least half of what I draw, before I'm satisfied ;) Keep on trying!

Any way this could be done in GIMP 2

I guess so, I never tried gimp 2, but I think the features should be similar... Just out of curiosity I'm going to download it and install today and see for myself :) If I come up with anything, I'll write here :)

Thank you very much, I'm really struggling with it and don't have any tutorials for GIMP 2. :)
I don't know how to render in it, either.

As much as I could tell (Gimp interface always confuses me), You can easily do all the steps, except for the "Liquify" effect, that gimp seems to be lacking. My suggestion is to try and "smudge" the biotic lines to make them more wobbly :)

What I usually do is pose models in XNALara, add lights if necessary and then save the image in .png file (no background) and import it to PS for all other manipulations :)

He does, doesn't he? :D I swear it wasn't my idea from the start, it just HAPPENED.
I guess Thane is more eager to play jokes than I thought xD

Lol. :)

Oh yes! I guess it's the kind of year when we want to see our favourite characters 'humiliated' like this, huh? I can't wait to see what you'll do to poor Garrus! xD

Ha ha, I guess so. :)
