Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting the foreground: Part 2, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- So, we have our Foreground layer…painted in two distinct colors.…And now, we want to add more colors…to this Foreground layer.…And I'm going to start with a darker color.…And I'm picking the dark color that we have here,…and I will just go further down our color field,…towards black.…And with this darker color now,…I can paint in those cavities here, in the cracks,…and I can paint into the dark sides,…into the shadowy parts of our rocks…and define the structures that we can't see yet.…
And as you might see, with a third color,…we already start to really get a feeling…for the geometry of these rocks.…They start to look like actual,…three-dimensional structures.…And that's the whole point, actually.…You often put a lot of effort…to shade and detail structures.…It can take hours and hours.…And often you make the mistake--…well, at least in my eyes it's a mistake--…to go into too much detail…and into too much different colors and shades.…
Often, all these different shades and colors…are not even needed to make it work.…
