oh after like blend modes I still colour on top of it.
Overlay is just the first pass. Blocking in general colour. Then I added tints for the colour shadow... and then I do a pass for highlights (the shadows and highlights area normal blend mode.. just regular brush with a bit of opacity to build up the colour). Usually if I add highlights.. add a slightly different colour... for example if the object is red.. the I paint a little bit of orange highlight and then go to white (or maybe yellow to white).
hey thanks. Yeah I do have a cintiq. It makes my life a lot easier. With some of the newer videos I have the videos up on youtube with a higher resolution, if you're interested(DA has trouble uploading large video files).
