Lighting is processed like a shading. This layer filled by black, and set in Screen mode. then add some highlights.
This layer doesn't make me know well completed image if set Normal mode so I progress it with keep Screen mode. Addition is also okay but it is stronger than Screen. Choose modes as you like.
While blend with shading layer and check, basic painting was completed!!
This basic painting image makes me feel too vivid. I decrease saturation by put an Alpha value only layer between shading and coloring. (If you feel this good at now, this process doesn't be needed)
And this section will introduce skills that I often use to make it looks well!
Copy by a Shading or Lighting layer and change layer type to Alpha value only, and change color as you like(blue is cold, orange is warm. green is natural)
Draw forgotten shoelaces on Line art layer and change line color to brown (I had planned to draw this with different style...)
Make such layer and set on above of Line art layer with Softlight 50%
Paint shadow of ground to Shadow layer in lowest place (optionally)
Do Save and Save as PNG to export because merging layers may make bad effect to visual.
It's an introduction of brushes used in this tutorial:
Splash and Blot can be used in painting water, starry sky, blood, traditional style art, and many effects:
Since I received request about way of use Finger and Blur mode, I write here what I think how to use them.
Basic smoke(or fire) tutorial with Finger mode and a way of Blur mode:
Finger and Blur doesn't have basic setting (pressure/random/water/brush shape) excluding size and density but texture and ruler can be enabled with option window so setting them will bring you many ways of expression!
(In fact, I don't use them often in illustrating basically. Those function may be able to help you at abstract art or realistic painting)
My recommendation of shortcut keys: This is for Lefty user so it's may not useful for Righty.
