"Mage" by Jon Neimeisterby 3dtotal Publishing

Starting a painting in grayscale and adding color is a useful technique to learn regardless of genre or skill level, especially if you struggle with value and color.

You can find step-by-step guidance on this method in Jon Neimeister's chapter in Beginner's Guide to Digital Painting in Photoshop 2nd edition.

Throughout this tutorial, you will learn how to:
• Use layers and clipping masks to structure and
organize a painting
• Use value to create a strong image
• Use gradient maps and blending modes to colorize an image
• Render a range of different surface textures
• Add atmospheric lighting effects
