Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Finishing touches, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- So this is the current state…of our space pirate illustration.…And let me just close the Tool Presets here.…So that we can make the Layers palette a little bit bigger…to see how our file is organized.…So we have the coloring of the background here…with a grouped color layer still.…We can merge them…just to save some space…in the Layers palette.…
Layers, Merge Layers.…Now we have combined them and we want to…reactivate the transparency lock again.…And then we have the coloring layer…for the space pirate, for the figure.…Then we have the three…sketch layers above.…And now we want to do some finishing touches…and for those I create a new layer…on top of everything else.…
And I call it Finishing Touches.…Because I now want to make sure…that when I apply paint…that it goes over the drawing…and is not obscured by the drawing.…Now the first thing I want to do is to…use a much smaller brush and just…create some more highlights.…I pick the lightest tone from the skin color here…and make an even lighter tone.…And I just have to adjust the Opacity…
