Join Rayce Bird for an in-depth discussion in this video Extra details and digital painting, part of Creating a Goblin Using Textures and Compositing in Photoshop.
- [Voiceover] Now let's take a closer look…at the finishing details.…I'll show you some digital painting tips and tricks…and subsurface scattering to manually redefine…our goblin's exterior.…Let's take a look at some of these areas…that are a little boring still…and that's where digital painting really comes in…to be a necessity when it comes to…throwing in these types of composited textures.…So open up a new layer and we're just gonna leave this…as a normal layer, nothing too special.…
