The finished picture looks amazing and I am struggling to find a good technique I can use, so I will definitely try and follow. :)

Greaatt! but what does the Mulitply option really do?
KOBAANNI's avatar
idk if u have found out by now, but it takes the color u have selected and multiplies it to create a darker shade, if u take blue and paint it, then creat layer ontop and use the same blue, it will make it darker because it multiplied it, overly / color dodge are like the opposite.

Yeah I've found it out already, but still thanks for the attempt. Have a nice day/evening/morning!

Also, multiply preserves the values of the bottom layer! Sorry if you already know this :4
These are excellent!  Thanks

May I borrow parts of this tutorial for a powerpoint I'm doing for school?  It won't be technically public since it's just a speech on digital art for class and I will credit you.

hello, sorry but I can not understand how you did it: (nice tutorial but I'm almost at the beginning of digital painting brush and do not understand that you used to color the bases (I refer to the last 2 images) .... thanks
Korbeaux's avatar
are you referring to the 'multiply' layer thing? because in that case she just changed the setting of the layer as you can do in pretty much any decent painting program (even the free ones) or the brush, she used the Airbrush Pen opacity Flow brush, it comes with photoshop or something else?

Thank you for these tutorials :) They are so very helpful.
I've played with overlay and multiply before but never really understood colour dodge and a few others since they seemed to do weird things and I found it easier to work without them. Perhaps I'll have another look into them :)

What makes dA amazing is the fact that they're artists like you here, willing to give en extra effort just to teach their fellow painters how to become better and not taking any reward for this. Thaaaaaaaaaaaaank you!
