Step 15 - Working on Clouds
At this point, I realized that my painting needs some clouds. So I make a new layer and paint as you see. The Cloud layer is over the sky color. I continue adding more details. I also would like to add some more details on the top of the cloud layer too. And also I do add some strokes with the Dodge tool I use this because I want to add some slight light areas on the clouds.
Step 16 - Adding Details to Clouds
Now pay attention to the details which I just make with the color dodge option. I opened the “sky” layer for you to see more clearly the details of the clouds.
And also I do add some strokes with the Dodge tool too. I use this because I want to add some slight light areas on the clouds.
Now pay attention to the details which I just make with the color dodge option. I closed some layers for you to see more clearly the details of the big rock. And I continue to add details on the rock too.
Step 19 - Detailed Colouring for the Illustration
Once I’m satisfied with detailing the clouds I began detailing for the other stuff on the illustration. I added some red and yellow colors on the bottom of the image.
Step 20 - Continue to adding more Details
I continue to add more details for the clouds and here a screenshot for the main details. Now I’m executing on the high contrast for the clouds and the rocks by adding some bright tones to the side, darkening the back, and putting in some highlights to its outline.
Step 21 - Adding Shadows on the Rock
And here I decided to make some new changes to the illustration. Here as you see the position of the rock must be like this now. Now I’m going to add color to the character. By the way, don’t forget at this step you don’t have to detail everything.
At this point, I kept working on the main details and lights, until I got a nice and contrast. Sometimes I have to change some colors on the rock and delete some details of it.
Now we can start out detailing rock. I also used the Color Dodge tool for the bright areas. This is how it looks once all the adjustments are done with the Colour Dodge and Burn tool.
I do want some difference at the bottom of our rock. First, choose the rock layer and after that choose Edit/Transform/Warp.
