Long Tutorial is Long by TastesLikeAnya Long Tutorial is Long by TastesLikeAnya
Long enough for me to not even feel silly using a meme to describe it.
I hope everything is clear enough. Both in quality of explanation and jpg.

I don't know what to say. This image is so huge (almost 17000 px) that it's taking five minutes to upload.

I hope it actually loads for you all.

I have a much better understanding of bounced lighting now! Thank you! :D I've been struggling REALLY hard with lighting recently and this tutorial just did something right for me. I also get how to use the brush tool better :D I couldn't understand why no matter how many ways I adjusted my brush settings my paint lines look streaky and odd sO I'd compensate by blending (but muting the painted feel :/) now I know all i need to do is keep my pen down.

<3 All those details are amazing. What a lovely tutorial. Thank you again!

Is photoshop CS4 free? (If not, how much is it?)

CS4 was discontinued, so you can't get it legally anymore. The current version I can only find as subscription-based for some reason?

The GIMP is a pretty good free alternative though.

Gimp is not the way to go, its like paint in my eyes. You should try Paint Tool SAI

Paint Tool SAI is like 60 USD, right? (My trial is expired)

I'm not sure, but you can get a free version if you just google "Paint Tool SAI full free".

fire alpaca is also a pretty good free program. It's similar to SAI, from what I've heard.

Had a question, but perhaps someone has asked it already and can direct me to it.
I'm literally copying this piece by piece so I can see the process in its entirety.
Right now I just layed down the flat dark red color for the shadow on the "griffinlighting" layer. The issue I'm having is that when I try to apply the dark red or pale blue hilights on the feathers it applies as a different color, even if I use the eyedropper tool. I suppose I could just add another layer so I don't have this issue, but don't want to mess up the steps you have. Any ideas why this could be happening?

So unfortunately when I saved the PSD, I had already merged the layers. Maybe I'll try running through it again, and then ask you. Thanks.
