How to Create an Anime Artwork in Photoshop

How to Create an Anime Artwork in Photoshop
  1. Create a new layer and position it above all the other layers.
  2. Load the selection of the characters then use the Gradient tool to create a orange to blue gradient. Because the light source of the drawing used for this tutorial is from the left side, I will draw a gradient from the left to right. This will make the left side warmer and the right side cooler.
  3. Change the blending mode of the current layer to Color.
  4. Lower the opacity to about 10-20%.

  3. Useful tutorial, thank a lot! But one thing I cannot understand: why should we checkmark the Other Dynamics option, if we do not any changes in this palette? It seems to me the result is the same, with checked option or without it?

  4. ummm wouldnt it be better to use the gradient tool instead of the dodge and burn? its waaay easier, i tried dodge and burn, it didn't work as well and was hard to make it smooth. The gradient tool does it all for you. gradient is better

  5. Does anyone know how to perform the same function in Photoshop CS6? That is the newest version, and I cannot find the button mentioned.
