Hello Haru!! I was wondering if you have or can make a tutorial about lighting, because it's kinda difficult for me and personally i love how you make such potent but soft games of lights, especially in your latest no.6/YoI au drawing. Hope you have a nice day/night/afternoon! *insert heart emoji*
Thanks so much!! It’s a bit hard to explain because it’s super expiremental, but I tried my best. I rely heavily on layer modes when it comes to lighting. It’s the lazy and pretty way out lol
1. Basic color and shading.
2. On a new layer, I filled all the contents of the drawing (NOT the contents of the layer) with black, and reduced the opacity to about 45%. This gives you the cool shadow.
3. Repeated step 2 with the color red, then erased for the lighter parts like shion’s hair (both the black and red layer)
4. Here I added 2 layers, one at overlay andair brushed some pretty bright colors, then another layer on add/color dodge or whatever you have for the colourful highlights and bits of light everywhere.
Tbh the only thing that runs in my head when I’m lighting is MAKE IT PRETTY (and in the process I defy all laws of lighting)
