Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Contrast tweaks and gradient layers, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- So this is the state of our illustration.…We have painted on four layers.…We have painted all the elements of our illustration.…And what follows now always is my personal favorite part.…It's tweaking.…The cool thing about digital illustration…is that you can tweak a lot.…So it's not so much of a problem…if you make some mistakes in the painting phase.…you can tweak a lot and fix a lot in post.…
All right, so one thing that's bothering me…about the current state of the illustration is…that the contrasts here in this mountain range…look much more interesting…than the contrasts in the palace.…And that's not good.…And the palace should be the most prominent feature…of the illustration.…And the first thing I'm going to do…is I select my MIdground…where these mountains here are located.…And I'm going to use…a very big soft brush…and I pick one of the mid-tones here.…
And very slightly with a low Opacity,…I paint over the layer.…And this will lower the contrasts…and the highlights get darker that way.…Well, we just lowered the contrast of the whole layer.…
