Light­ing with gra­di­ents

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops | In depth Gothic artwork -

My base colours are quite flat, so I use gra­di­ents to make them pop. Gra­di­ents cre­ate a glow­ing ef­fect on lighter ar­eas, and unify the shadow ar­eas. This play of light and shadow cre­ates at­mos­phere. On a new layer, I cre­ate a Fore­ground to Trans­par­ent gra­di­ent, set the blend­ing mode to Soft Light or Over­lay for lighter ar­eas, and Mul­ti­ply for shadow ar­eas, and ad­just colour as be­fore.
