This is a small tutorial about bodypainting designs. Not really designing itself, only the technical things. Have fun with it... ;)

Thx to *kalany for rewriting in proper English.
Thx to =etuix for making the chibi-me on top.

PS: For those who care: the PSD is available. Hit Download to Desktop.

Great tutorial overall, but maybe iŽm missing something here? The Shadow layer, how did you do that one? An adjustment layer doesnŽt do the same :(

You mean the layer on the ground? I just duplicated the layer of the woman and made a gradient style.

No, that one i had figured. I downloaded the PSD, and there is a layer you call shadowlayer. basically a grayscaled version of the girl, but it gives a much better effect than just doing a brightness/contrast adjustment layer..

I think I used a masklayer to make the shadow lighter when further from the body. I'm not sure, it's been 7 years ago :giggle:

IŽll have to experiment a little. Kudos for making a tutorial that still works after 7 years!
(Ofcurse - an updated version would be nice ;-))

i'm trying this atm, but i have problem. somehow I can't add a layer mask to the Gold paint layer. when i right click the add layer mask-button has this..inactive grey, so you can't click it. +tries to explain+ why is it not working? =(
everything went fine so far. this is great fun! ^^ even though I hardly work with this masks-stuff.

Maybe the layer is locked or something? Try clicking on the square icon with a circle in it :D

It's got nipples in it, that's why. Nipples are Serious Business!
