Caught this going through my tutorials to see if any of them needed to be updated. I did one on more photorealisic lightning that I figure is time to update a little bit, and saw this in the 'more like this' box. Great tutorial. Covers a few things I don't really think of when I do it

great tutorial,
but may I ask why you set the layer to overlay?
Reply
:iconscarypet:
scarypet Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2011   General Artist
heya!
I don't set the layer to overlay...
it is the brush setting which I change to overlay...

it helps create a more vivid "glow", compared to the normal setting. (however if I want the colors to be more flat, i don't use this)

Thanks for this informative tutorial! I have one question though. I know how to set a layer to overlay, but how do I set a brush to overlay? Is that option only available in later Photoshop versions? I have Photoshop 5.5, so it's pretty old...

scarypet Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2010   General Artist
Hi! Oh my! Hm you're missing out on a lot.. I'm using CS2 (since cs5 is out) and it's a bit outdated already.. that brush setting might not be there yet in 5.5... I suggest you get a newer photoshop! ;) (in photoshop cs2, the brush setting i specified is up beside the opacity & flow sliders)

Harusameiro Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hmm, I guess you're right. I didn't know that cs2 was already so outdated though. :O_o:
Well, I know my school computers have cs2 or cs4 installed, so I guess I should use them to get a little more used to the newer interface and options. Thanks!
