Pick­ing colours for high­light­ing

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

I set my light source at the top right of the im­age and add brighter, more vivid colours on the char­ac­ter’s shoul­ders, arm and head­piece, so that the char­ac­ter catches the viewer’s eye. For shad­ows I used less vivid colours and colder tones. This tone dif­fer­ence is also vis­i­ble on the char­ac­ter’s face, where I use a soft pink line be­tween lighter ar­eas and shadow sec­tions to achieve a nice con­trast be­tween the colder shad­ows and warmer high­lights.
