Another quickie tutorial!

This highlights a form of lighting I like to use in some of my images. You could say that this is very similar to my "Coloring via Adjustment Layers" tutorial, except this is a little more to-the-point, without trying to cram in a lot of lessons on Adjustment Layers either.

Anyway, enjoy the simplicity of it all!

Did the tutorial. Really love it. The in deep understanding of light really makes life easier.
Here's my result. A little bit goofy. Not used to working trough adjustment layers.

I always tend to make my shadows with dark blue fills...simply masking out the light layer where light wouldn't hit actually makes a hell of a lot more sense.
