Simple Backlight Tutorial by SnowSultan Simple Backlight Tutorial by SnowSultan
A few people have asked how I did the lighting in my recent simple pic "First Day on the Job", so I made this up to show how I did. Easy enough. :) I might write some DAZ Studio tutorials soon too, so this was good practice.

I did add a few extra shines and such after these steps, but I just used some light brushes I bought at DAZ and adjusted the layer opacity.

Thanks, I hope it can help!

- updated a few times to describe steps a little more clearly -

I hope so! You can probably do what I did here in any graphics program though, just select something, feather, and fill. :)

Wow. Utterly simple. Except using the lasso. I wanna strangle the lasso with itself sometimes.

Oh LOL, I should have mentioned that you select that just using the magic wand or any other 'flood fill' type selection tool. Might go back and edit it. Thanks. :)
