16 Cre­at­ing am­bi­ence

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

By mak­ing the char­ac­ter stand out, am­bi­ent light can trans­form the qual­ity of an il­lus­tra­tion from good to ex­cel­lent; how­ever, it’s im­por­tant not to overdo this. Other­wise the il­lus­tra­tion will lose the fo­cal point be­cause ev­ery­thing is bright. I want to de­pict the light com­ing from the sun be­hind the char­ac­ter, so I add the strong­est am­bi­ent light on that side of her. I set one layer to Lin­ear Light and an­other to Outer Glow. This cre­ates beau­ti­ful white light and a yel­low glow on its edge.
