Adding Depth to images using Dodge and Burn layers for Highlighting and Shading

Yes, the soft brush with varying opacity is a great tool. I think its potential is underrated.

 

I like how 3Dish you made the shadows and highlights with the simple step.

 

This is a forerunner to digital painting in Paint.NET.

 

What the technique was able to achieve on your daughter's picture makes me think of an impressionist painting.

Super useful and well explained tutorial, hippiechos! 👍 I've been studying shading for some time, mostly for pencil-on-paper sketches, and it's impressive how a work's aspect changes when shaded. This will surely come in handy since I also enjoy tweaking my sketches digitally :)

I have a few problems with grayscale painting. This might come in handy. :]

Thank you, everyone. I'm glad you guys found this useful! I'd love to see what works you create with the technique. 

 

@LionsDragon - Thank you. :) I tend to agree about her adorableness. We were having fun playing dress-up and doing a photo shoot, so I could practice taking pictures.

Great technique @hippiechos!  I would have never thought of highlighting and shading this way.

 

I'll have to experiment.  Thank you!!  :)   :cake:
