Magic Effects by rossmallo Magic Effects by rossmallo
Here's a bunch of magic effects ive done, and will probably use in the comic. B I G thanks to :iconpearlphoenix: for her INCREDIBLE magic tutorial! Go check it out [link] before reading how I did these, because i use terms from that tutorial.

1:Fire - Described in Pearlphoenix’s tutorial

2:White explosion - Blurred with…one of the assort brushes, cant remember which. Then I used Crosshatch to do the internal bit - rotated the brush in dynamics window 10 degrees each time, then used a progressively lighter then C B A

3: Diffindo, As seen in HP:COS for the PS2 - simple blur job.

4: Blue comet - Described in Pearlphoenix’s tutorial

5:Midas Prism Spray - made 5 glowing orbs next to each other, and smudged the trails into one another. I then Dodged and Burned with Crosshatch 4.
(see [link] for a visual representation of this spell)

6: High Alchemy - use circles - the first of the assort. Brushes for blurring, and use again for the other rings , with 50, 25, and 10 opacity, going outwards.

7: Snowy ball - Blue-Light blue orb, then smudged in circles with a Snowflake brush (hence the scratchy look). I then used a basic scatter brush for a bit of snow

8: Green ball - Described in Pearlphoenix’s tutorial.

9:Teleport (as seen in SHINY P2) - Purple, Blue, white. Blurred with Crosshatch 1.

10: Water Sigil Stone - Light blue - Blue orb, then smudged downwards. I then used the same size airbrush to put in a black center, and smudged more blue over the top. I finished with a number of dots.

11:Lightning - same as in tutorial

12:Vortex - Light blue Orb, smudged using Triangle-dots, Strength 95%.

Ill put up a bunch more If i can think of more ideas for them.

I feel like these could be made into TF2 unusual effects

I love number 11! =D

I wish I could draw and give that effect of the light, but IN COLOR! I mean, in the traditional way...

Any ideas or tips you can give me for that?
