The last part of the lesson includes picturing the starry night sky.
1) A fragment of the sky. I try to choose a neutral background for it,
placing the characters on the first plan. Use also soft colors and
uncomplicated ornaments for the clouds.
2) Start representing the clouds themselves. I use as a basic color the
dark – blue one, working with the standard brush, changing periodically
its transparency and the softness.
3) The light blue color may make the clouds' nuances livelier when coloring the elements in an irregular way.
4) The clouds can look more voluminous if introducing an even lighter
color than the previous ones. Try not to cover definitely the previous
5) It's time for the clouds' "back plan" which must be colored with
dark nuances. I have chosen two blue - dark nuances, one of it being
almost black. We have to color out the elements also in an irregular
way, leaving some disorderliness on the picture.
6) Select now the Burn Tool to insert the shadows and process the back plan with it. I like dark sky too.
7) Using three other colors is possible to make the picture giving the
impression of more confusion. I always have thought that seedy clouds
look more real and natural than the even ones.
8) Select a middle nuance to smooth out the picture, introducing thin
stratums of colors on several zones with a transparent brush.
9) Let's work with the stars now. Choose out of the standard brushes the same one indicated on the screen.
