10 Shadow and light

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

The other ben­e­fit of hav­ing the var­i­ous el­e­ments of the piece flat­ted in on sep­a­rate lay­ers is that I have greater con­trol when cre­at­ing the shadow and light lay­ers. I can se­lect any part I like when paint­ing in the shadow. For this piece, I use a cool colour and set the layer’s Blend­ing mode to Mul­ti­ply. I build up sev­eral lay­ers of sharp shad­ows and gra­di­ents to add form and depth. To con­trast the cool shad­ows, I use a gra­di­ent glow of warm golden light. The Opac­ity is ad­justed and the Blend­ing mode for the layer is set to Soft Light.
