14 Light­ing ef­fects and fin­ish

ImagineFX - - In Depth Set Design -

Af­ter the bulk of the paint­ing has been com­pleted, I can now fo­cus on ad­just­ing the light­ing and val­ues for the best read. The idea is to tweak the bal­ance of the piece just in terms of value, to achieve the clear­est read. I also add a rim light to the sit­ting char­ac­ter’s face be­cause I feel she’s be­come slightly lost in the paint­ing, even though I’ve put a dark shadow be­hind her. Fi­nally, I add a noise fil­ter to tie the paint­ing to­gether.
