Light and Exposure by Artsammich Light and Exposure by Artsammich
I did a demo in an interview with Bobby Chiu of Imaginism where I talked a bit about light and exposure. You can find it here, hope it's helpful to some people out there!

how do you do your shading, getting it to blend so nicely? this is very helpful.

I use Painter, which has some nice blending stuff built into the brushes. You can blend in Photoshop using the smudge tool too, but you have to tweak it a bit.
Another thing that can help is using the largest brush you can for a stroke. Small fussy brush work is hard to get looking smooth, but big clean strokes need less blending.

I have been watching that video like 4 times in a row and working a rendering at the same time. I am quite decided to take your course (self taught version) at schoolism.com

For now, my biggest issue is that "stains" tend to appear in my digital paintings. Meaning by that that at some zones, using the brush with low opacity, and making several strokes leave dark and light stains here and there, which are difficult to get rid off, even using the smudge tool.

Are you using Photoshop or Painter?

I am using Photoshop CS2. I usually do my B/W painting with a round regular brush, wich hardness I modify in function of what I need, Low opacity and flow, with the "Other Dymamics" set to pen pressure e(opacity) and pen tilt (flow).

I always wondered if Painter had a feature to prevent that problem.

This is mostly what I get:

I spend hours cleaning the stains as I progress the shading.

Sorry I'm just replying to this now, it got lost in my inbox for a while! I don't see the stains in your image, but I know what you're talking about. Painter has a similar problem when using certain brushes on layers. I think it happens because of mixing with the invisible colors on the layer. You can try to select the whole layer and fill it with a color that is closer to what you want, just make sure the preserve transparency button is turned on so it doesn't cover your canvas with paint. In Painter it's less of a big deal (as also in Photoshop CS5) because brushes can mix and blend those stains more easily than you could ever do with the smudge tool in CS2.

I saw parts of the video a few days ago, will look at it later when i get time. But on this picture, it's different types of lights right? Not steps?
