Colour block in

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I add some colours us­ing big soft brushes and dif­fer­ent layer modes. Mul­ti­ply and Color Dodge help to push the sense of light. I fur­ther es­tab­lish the sense of light and ma­te­ri­als and group to­gether dif­fer­ent el­e­ments. By keep­ing the value range on dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als sep­a­rate, the dark­est ar­eas on skin won’t be as dark as the light­est ar­eas on a matt black cloth, for ex­am­ple.

Push­ing the light

I love the Color Dodge layer mode. You can use it with big soft brushes and sat­u­rated colours to quickly paint in bright light sources. I set­tle on hav­ing di­rect light com­ing from above left as well as a gen­eral am­bi­ent light on the face. I keep chang­ing my mind and ex­per­i­ment­ing with the de­sign of her out­fit. I wouldn’t rec­om­mend this: it can get very frus­trat­ing!
