anonymous asked:

how do you make your art look like it glows? you don't have to answer if it is your special technique

no special technique at all haha, it’s actually pretty simple! i used medibang to create this, but the same technique can be used in photoshop!

  • (1) have the elements you want glowing on a single layer. if you want the glow to have a particular colour you can make those elements that colour.
  • (2) duplicate that layer and set the top layer to the blending mode ‘add’. you can find this option at the top of the box with all your layers (the default setting is usually ‘normal’). you’ll notice that the elements will now be lighter!
  • (3) while the top layer is selected, go to filter > gaussian blur (or if you’re in photoshop filter > blur > gaussian blur). then play with the values until you get you desired glow effect. if you want the glow to be more intense, you can duplicate that top layer and then adjust the opacity to get your perfect intensity.

another way i get a glowing effect on my painted characters is with an overlay technique. i basically create a new layer on top of the character/object and then set the blending mode to overlay. i then take a big airbrush with a light-ish highlight colour and blob in some glows next to areas of sharp shadow!

hope this was helpful!

You can adjust the amount and radius to get sharper and crisp image!

I think it become more visible when the image is resized smaller afterwards!

Mini tutorial: Use subdivision surface modifier to smooth baking results

I’d like to share this trick I recently discovered. Please read my other tutorial on baking shadow for clothes if you don’t know what baking is.

Here’s a baking result. You can see the shade is a bit rough with harsh edges. Normally I’ll do a surface smooth filter in Photoshop. This tutorial will show you how to smoothen the result before going into Photoshop.
