Aida showed me this cool trick a while ago and its turned into a HUGE staple with how I light things now! Gradient Mapping in photoshop is a subtle way to change the colors in your work and works just like a photoshop mask layer! Meaning, you can change the transparency and how much of what part gets the color influence.
Gradients are also 100% customizable but photoshop is programmed with a few core staples for dramatic and vibrant lighting. The key is finding the saturation you want or like for the art you’re working with! I cant really teach that. 8D
hope this helps others! Play with your lighting!
This is as close as you’ll get to a tutorial by me, a tutorial by someone else about a thing I showed them!

Supermassive Black Hole by ELIA FERNANDEZ
I stumbled upon these and love them! If you struggle with hands (like me) these are great for practice and referencing. Thought I’d share my finds with other artists~.
A friend asked how I do this thing, so I decided to make a tutorial for it! FYI, this is Photoshop CS5. Hope it helps in some way! If there’s anything that completely confuses you, don’t hesitate to ask me. :)
Here is a fullsize version.
(This font’s exclamation point looks too much like an “L,” so I apologize for sounding too excited in my tutorial.)
Work progress gif for Leave it Broken :D
I forgot to mention in the gif, but the character, layer overlay, and paint over was done in Paint tool SAI and then edited in Photoshop.
I made a tutorial a while back on how to integrate 3D backgrounds to help speed up the drawing process for comic artists. Check it out if you’re interested. :D
