Darklaw | Primal Ecstasy Cover Detail
Detail of the fourth cover image for a series of Darklaw Stories.
One of the short cuts to the high contrast light/dark that I like (think chiaroscuro, à la Caravaggio) is to carve out the light rather than add the dark.
I usually add an entire layer of black, lighten it to around 50% and start erasing the areas I want light. I can do multiple layers and even colored layers to enrich, like the blue here.
The Darklaw Saga is a linked story collection published at Tantalizing Tales. The Darklaw Saga can be found here…
