Re: Adding shadows Technique...!

Hi again!

I wanted to try some of the things I have read hear. Somehow I have not comprehended much about how to get the right technique but hey! we are here to try, right!!!

I wanted to post the following image that I downloaded from Katrin's website.

I try different ways to improve or even get close to the effect on Clink Eastwood face.

Please post your critique here and I will try to work on it a little more.

The problems I encountered here were:

1. The lighest areas are lacking detail or color so I think it is just plain white in those spots... a little bit of color would help there.

2. Some of the darkest areas around the yes were hard to balance as in the color of the face. This spots have color values darker but I could not, for some reason, get them cleared.

3. The light source is only one on the left side of picture. i wanted to add little or more light sources around it too.

I am placing the first and second attempt as well as the effect I am trying to accomplish.

Take care!!
