En­grav­ing layer

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

As a fi­nal touch I like to add cross­con­tour en­grav­ing lines through­out my im­age. It’s a fun, stylis­tic tech­nique that adds sub­tle tex­tu­ral vari­a­tions and re­wards view­ers who ex­am­ine my art up close. I cre­ate a new layer with blend­ing mode set to a Over­lay at 30 per cent Opac­ity. Us­ing my An­gled Pen­cil brush set to white or pale or­ange, I etch del­i­cate lines to play up the face, hands, or any­where else that needs some ex­tra tex­ture.
