14 Mak­ing some fi­nal ad­just­ments

ImagineFX - - In Depth Portrait Skills -

Now it’s time to add some ex­tra light com­ing from the top. I choose to use a pink colour close to the one in the back­ground, to re­tain some unity and bring in a colour­ful glow all over the crown and feath­ers. I use a big, Round, soft-edged brush to create this spe­cial ef­fect, and ad­just the layer’s Opac­ity if I go too far with it. I re­peat the same process on the face, this time pick­ing a pale blue to con­trast with the back­ground colour. Fi­nally, I use a Bright­ness/Con­trast ad­just­ment to slightly cor­rect the gen­eral con­trast of my il­lus­tra­tion. And we’re done!
