Ap­ply­ing colour

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

When adding colour, my first step is to use gra­di­ent maps. Red for the shad­ows, sat­u­rated pink/cream for mid-val­ues and de­sat­u­rated cream for high­lights. On a Color layer above, I add pur­ple to the hair, over­all variations in hue and red to her cheeks, nose and ears. I use a Hard Light blend­ing mode to add sat­u­rated colours and darken ar­eas si­mul­ta­ne­ously.
