Chapter 9. Texture Painting > Darker Shades and Shadows

Darker Shades and Shadows

In order to bring the lighter tones out in the model, adding depth to the textures, we next need to add the darker areas.

As you did with the lighter tones, begin by creating a new layer named Darker Tones, and work your way around the texture pages, focusing on darker areas. These will include the creases in her jeans and recessed areas in her skin.


Tip

Remember, when texturing with darker tones, to use darker shades of the color you are painting onto, rather than black. Also, experiment with slightly different tones; for example, try making darker areas of skin slightly redder, and see what results you get.


When you’re ready, create a fourth layer called Shadows. Now you can go in and add the darkest areas to the texture, while also implementing some of the minor shadows (Figures 9.13 and 9.14).
