Final Thoughts

I hope that you were able to pick up some important techniques to use in your own work in the future. In this chapter, you should have learned the following lessons:

• How to paint a light source. In this case, we worked with a candle, but you would apply many of the same steps if you were painting a lightbulb, campfire, lit match, or really any small light source you would want to add to a painting.

• A way to paint smoke that, while not necessarily accurate to the way smoke looks in real life, is nevertheless effective when used in an illustration.

• How to paint a night scene and manage the values and colors to give a believable feel without creating a dull, gray image.

• How to paint the impression of moonlight shining through a window and falling both on the character and wall.
