Hey guys I went more in-depth on my Lumi Shade technique because people had expressed interest in more explanation. This video is broken up into multiple parts, so be sure to check out parts 2 and 3 here:
Picture 1: Turn on PS and create an A4 size
canvas with the resolution of 400dpi. Create a new layer and set the brush with
4px to sketch the outlines. The following picture is a small part of the whole
picture and there are many hair lines which can be used to add shadow later.
Picture 2: The next step is to spread color. At
the beginning set the layer property to “Multiply” and then create a few layers
under the outline layer such as skin layer and flower layer. It will be
convenient to draw shadow if you put different colors in different layers.
Picture 3: This part is to refine the
character’s face. Firstly, choose a color which is darker than skin and draw
shadow on face and neck with airbrush. Secondly, draw eye shadow and eyebrow
with the color of reddish brown. And lastly, draw lip with the color of orange.
Choose “Color Balance” to adjust the lip color if necessary. Then the face part
is almost finished.
Picture 4: This step is to add shadow on garland. In order to draw
shadow on garland, you’d better lock the opacity on its background color and
you can draw freely without worrying draw in other places.
Picture 5: Add shadow and highlights on hair.
To enrich the color in hair, I choose deep yellow as shadow color and I choose
to add yellow-green and pink in highlights.
Picture 6: Refine orchids around the waist of
character by locking opacity pixels of the orchid layer. Then use airbrush to
draw flower heart and add highlights in petals. And then set the brush to
hard-edge and choose light blue color to sketch the textures on petals.
Picture 7: Draw orchid leaves on the back of
the character and add highlights on light orchids. Those textures in followers
are created by spread texture brush.
Picture 8: The following part is to draw the
edge part of this picture. Sketch the outlines first and spread color to create
the hollow texture.
Picture 9: Choose splatter brush and do it as
the following picture shows. Draw lots of spots under orchid leaves to enrich
the whole picture.
Picture 10: Execute “Color Balance” after emerging
and duplicating layers.
Picture 11: Duplicate the layers again and execute
“Level”. And you can refer to the number in the following picture.
Picture 12: After finishing “Level”, remember
to set layer properties to “color filter” for that layer. And you can create
the lightening effect in character’s skin and light flowers.
Picture 13: Duplicate the layer where execute
“color filter” in last step and use “Gaussian Blur” to make the picture looks
Finding startup capital for business in the age of crowd sourcing and social media networks is a whole lot easier than in previous times reported iHumanMedia.com.
Raising seed money for your new business or cause will benefit from a detailed mobile web presentation that busy smart phone and tablet executives can review online. Think big, make your startup a game changer. Nothing is impossible, be an industry leader.
Capital sources can be wealthy family members or white angels. Venture capital firms with resources can help. Social network friends that have connections. Review crowdsourcing and micro lending sites like KickStarter.com and Kiva.org for startup capital says James Dean @ iHumanMedia.com. Small business bank loans should be a last option. Don’t get into debt. Remember just 1 in 10 startups last beyond three years.
