I have a much better understanding of bounced lighting now! Thank you! 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 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!
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?
I'm sure I didn't understand every single thing you explained in this~ But did undstand enough to re-enforce some things I had learned about shadows and colors before~ so thank you for taking the time to do this tutorial for us~ ^^
but how can I adjust the pen pressure to opacity? Itīs in the brush dynamics, isnīt it? But when I change opacity to pressure it only makes hard edged circles... ...must be a common mistake so sorry for asking |D
