Time to brighten the scene

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

This piece is com­ing along nicely enough, but it just doesn’t feel dark enough at the mo­ment. This is where I break out my trusty Gra­di­ent tool again and drop in a medium-dark gra­di­ent be­hind the X-wing at the back. There, that feels bet­ter, doesn’t it?

Lens flare on the lightsaber

I want lens flare com­ing off the lightsaber. I cre­ate a Lighten layer, pick a sat­u­rated, medium-value red and use the Gra­di­ent tool to cre­ate an even band of red at the level of the lightsaber. Then I cre­ate a Layer Mask, fill it with black and use a Ra­dial Gra­di­ent in the Layer Mask to paint the red band back in.
