Recre­at­ing the star dif­frac­tion spikes

ImagineFX - - Traditional Artist -

To ac­cent some stars, I paint in the dif­frac­tion spikes we’re used to see­ing in space pho­tog­ra­phy. To make th­ese con­vinc­ing, I thin my paint down with Gam­sol un­til it flows off the tip of an ink dip pen. A small, straight-edged bridge helps to guide my stroke, care­fully vary­ing line thick­ness with pres­sure.
