Hint at some gusts of wind
Wind is great for drama and I can use it to lose some of the hard edges on my foreground X-wing. This is extremely helpful for getting the stink off of my simple Modo render. I also continue to refine my character. I find an image of an old World War II gas mask and plop it down as my face.
Making the wind work in the scene
I need to be more specific with the wind, so I start adding blowing debris. I find a good selection of images online that have dirt, dust and garbage blowing around. The photo I’m using features dark debris in front of a light-coloured storm so I use it on a Multiply layer. I often have to push the levels pretty far to get rid of unwanted elements.
