Light Steps by TamberElla Light Steps by TamberElla
The "glowing from within" look is achieved by starting with a bright base. The dark tones are layered on top semi transparently, purposefully leaving the orange peeking through. The light colors are "dry brushed" on top opaquely (digitally I just use sharper textured brushes). This gives the light areas the appearance of "coming toward the viewer". Final details are added with a small, sharp brush in areas I wish to bring focus to.

Gosh, the brighter colours are just so perfectly placed, it does seem to come right at me. Great value control :heart:

This is amazing. The softness of the lighting and the way you've coloured it is so pleasing to look at.

this method is pretty similar to standard oil painting, isn't it?

The artist doesn't choose what gets put on the front page, it's pretty much random. They pick out what posts are popular. Also no offence but your artwork is nowhere near this skill level-

Gosh, this whole piece is lovely but what I especially adore is the small area of fluff in and around the lion's ear. Thank you for sharing your technique, also! I've been trying to capture similar glowing lighting within my own art but have been struggling to get it right.
