Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding an orange glow, part of Digital Matte Painting: Changing a Scene From Summer to Winter.
My mountain chalet is starting to look really dusky, but I'd like to add some…orange glow onto the top of the hills and onto the top of the chalet to unify…this scene and blend the landscape in.…There would probably also be some glow on this patch of snow in front of the chalet,…so I'm going to create another new layer on top of the BlueMultiply layer and…then choose an orange from the sky.…I'm going to choose a slightly lighter orange and then fill the entire new layer…full of that orange and set the layer blending mode to Overlay.…
I'm going to control where this orange glow shows up by using a layer mask.…Select all and then fill the layer mask with black. Then load in the layer…selection from the foothills.…Then choose a soft round brush, make it nice and large, and then just brush white…into the layer mask where I want the orange glow to show up.…I'd like to add some orange glow right here where the most intense part of the…sky is showing through between the mountains.…
I'm going to load in the selection from the BlueMultiply layer and then paint…
