have seen Oney do many drawings like this along with many other great flash artists do this kind of technique on pictures on Photoshop (In picture below). I am not sure what the techniques called but it sure looks cool and I would like to learn how to do it. I have Photoshop but I am just not sure how to do it? Can anyone tell me what it's called or help me learn it? Thanks.
Cosmic's reply to your thread pretty much summed up your question with burn+dodge/black, soft low opacity brushes, but I thought I'd throw in something I've picked up:
If you make a new layer overtop of what you're working on, set it to Multiply and fill it with a white fill, THEN use a burn brush set to highlights, you have a way of shading your pic using the burn tool without saturating the layers underneath and can be tweaked later with a white brush if you want to remedy it.
Vice versa is true for highlighting with the dodge tool; I believe it's a screen layer filled with black.
I used to do this, but I think it's better to learn to use brushes with slight changes to hue, since straight off lightening and darkening of base colours looks guff. But dodge and burn is good for tweaking and adjusting contrast to places in your picture where you need it most.
