Thread: Sticker brush complimentary shadows

  1. #1

    Sticker brush complimentary shadows

    Someone must have played with this before, but I was just messing about with a sticker brush and came across the shadow colour. Hmm, I thought, you can save a preset brush and store its current colour, but also its shadow colour. Therefore you could make a set of brushes with certain colour schemes built in, for e.g. complimentary shadows. So rather than having a single colour wash underpainting, each major colour group you use could have its own complimentary underpainting on the fly which could lead to some interesting effects.
    Here's a test sheet:

    good one Rondo.
    Bobby and Hannah, the shadows have been staring us in the face all this time but I never actually thought to play with the settings. I'm sure we'll find so many other ways to use this.

    Ha! Too much time on out hands Kashmir.
    I think there could be some interesting uses, for example the blue with orange shadows could be adapted to make tinged clouds at sunset/sunrise, or maybe with the right textured brush, a skin shader with built in sub surface scattering and shadow type effects...
    Cheers

    Well, now you've mentioned those ideas, you have to do them. That's how brainstorming works (also I want more tutorials on everything).

    Ha! Once I've figured out exactly how, that sounds like a good idea.
