Fill your scene with light

1 Once I fin­ish the sketch of the image I start lay­ing down the flat colours. I save my­self a bit of time by en­sur­ing that they’re slightly sat­u­rated. Dur­ing this part of the paint­ing process I de­cide on the lo­ca­tion of my light source. Then I’m ready to be­gin ren­der­ing the com­po­si­tion. 2 Be­cause I’ve cho­sen to place my light source at the top of the pic­ture, my ob­jects will cast long and dark shad­ows. Fur­ther­more, be­cause the light that I’ve cho­sen is very pale, cold and strong, my shad­ows will be warm and dark and very def­i­nite. 3 Once the ren­der­ing and the de­tails are com­pleted, I add small touches of green light, re­flected from the wall, on to the dress of the char­ac­ter. Fi­nally, I em­pha­sise the light source’s strength by adding a bright halo around the sur­faces al­ready af­fected by it.
