Gradient Painting - Tutorial 2 by Lizkay Gradient Painting - Tutorial 2 by Lizkay
ALSO AVAILABLE IN GERMAN HERE: [link]

Part #2 Part #1 about gradient painting can be found here: [link]

Not much to tell here, I bet I made like a hundred mistakes in there.. ugh.. :blush: Any questions? Just ask ;) Also, please refer to this Tutorial (or to my DA URL) if you use this technique, Thanks!

:wave:
... as promised, probably doing a few more, following the Poll I have up ;)

Oh and before I forget it.. THIS IS JUST A BASE, a fast way to get the shadings on your paintings done, it probably takes a lot more steps to be added there, ;) until you have a final painted and detailed result.

Where it says "overwork the areas of your merged image", what's the end of that sentence?

hmm, I think it says, 'there are a lot edges that need work" it mainly describes the step of overpainting the areas that don't fit together too well ;)

Photoshop offers a lot tricks like that ;p ..
badly the program is even after working so many years with it, still so complex... all you need to do is find the things out ;)

the heavy white reflections are simply done with a small brush in photoshop around 30% opacity and painted on ;) the softer white reflections are done like here, with a selection and the gradient tool.

Wonderful! very easy to understand. Thank you for the tutorial.

There is one mistake that I see. The last part of your text next to the smudge tool Image is blocked by the next image. (about 15 images down from the top) "... you will see there are a lot.."
