How to light You bust - steps

2K Favourites
I prefer to show steps than do a tutorial. I still need to find my workflow in Photoshop ^^ But You can see the basic idea, general steps while I work, how I do my light studies.
If You have any specific question about how I work in Photoshop, You can ask. Maybe later I will try to use these question to make a tutorial with description ^^'

If You want to to have a regular uploads from me, and see more art  or read art learning resources go to my blog - I answer the art questions there! :D

I would love to make a video on that in the future. Video format is the best one to explain all the steps. I will figure out how to screen capture my work and then how to produce a video with tutorial.

Heya this is beautiful!!! 
I was wondering if you do video tutorials as well or if you know where I could find one. I am a noob in digital painting and I would love to learn more about it!

Thanks for being interested in my video tutorials.
Actually you are not the first one to ask. That is why I need to give it a thought and really start out with the channel.
I just still didn't know figured out how I can produce video. How I can screen capture and how edit, should I speak in the video or just plain text would be enough.
I am really shy about that and that is my problem. However that is my wish to make it happen.

I hope you don't mind if I copy this pose and process for my character, as practice. I don't use photoshop, but it still might work for me. I'll link to this picture when I post it on DA. If you have a problem with that, please let me know. Thank you for showing these steps. I'm always at a loss on how to shade and highlight digitally.

Yes sure do that. I have no problem if someone want to copy to learn something. It looks like educational thing and I am all for that :) Post how you did it on your DA and let me know :)

do you use different layer modes to light your drawings or do you just use different colors and blend them in?
mannequin-atelier's avatar
I don't use layers for this, I worked on one layer. I used only different brush modes.
Koogleblitz's avatar
ah ok. so i assume you use mostly overlay for hightlights and multiply mode for shadows?
