Fi­nal­is­ing her look

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Sci-fi Character -

I im­prove the vol­ume and light­ing on the woman. The Burn and Dodge tools help me to re­tain the de­tail of my work, as well as en­abling me to ad­just the light­ing. I use a Color Dodge layer specif­i­cally for light­ing. I work more on her freck­led skin and tweak her ex­pres­sion. I want her to look as if she’s liv­ing in the mo­ment, and hav­ing the time of her life!

Ad­just the last de­tails

Almost fin­ished. I check if all my tones are work­ing in har­mony with the colours. I place some light around the character to bet­ter in­te­grate her with the back­ground. Fi­nally, I flat­ten my lay­ers and ap­ply a colour fringe ef­fect us­ing the Lens Cor­rec­tion fil­ter, fol­lowed by the Smart Sharpen tool. And then I call the paint­ing fin­ished. I hope you like my work!
