I've recently begun painting my Necron army, and I am very fond of the object source lighting effect. I've looked at tutorials utilizing both a standard brush, and an airbrush, and it seems like the airbrush is far more efficient, faster, and yields better effects.
I currently use a standard brush set up, and was wondering if there are any experienced painters out there who can testify on this subject. I've never used an airbrush before, and part of me believes it isn't really any easier, as these guys obviously know what they're doing. I'm not much of an artist, you see, and I don't have as much time to practice painting as I would like.
I'm going to add a couple of pictures showcasing my first attempt at the effect, on a Necron Overlord.
I look forward to hearing what you all have to say.
