Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the base of the lamp, part of Creating Commercial Illustrations.
- So now we've got our basic lamp going there.…It's rounded down here, so we need something…to hold it onto the table.…So we're gonna create the base,…which we have in the Paths.…There it is.…So I'll take that guy right there…and turn it into a selection as I've done all the others.…Going back to our layers.…It should be behind the body.…So what I'm gonna do is, create down here…a new layer and call it "base."…So now, the base is gonna be brass.…Let's just say it's a brass base.…So what I'm gonna do is, I'm gonna pick…a nice color for my brass to have.…
Gonna go in here and, say, pick something about like that.…That's a good color.…So gonna go ahead and then fill that…with the Foreground Color at 100%.…There. Okay. So now, let me deselect this.…So I'm gonna do a few things to make this…really look like it is, in fact, brass.…So, one thing it needs right off the bat is,…it's gonna need a shadow.…And what we're going to do right now is,…create a little group here.…And we're gonna call this group "the base"…because we do have quite a few layers…
