      • very nice. i always have so much trouble with highlights... what do you do and do you have a draw pad thinger.
      • Thanks, Deano. What I initially did was create a secondary shadow in between two layer's of the woman (the topmost being rendered at roughly 50% opacity) slightly below and to the right of the original object, so that the shadow would resemble a darkened portion of the woman's body. After this, I manually touched up the remaining portions by use of the "lighten/darken" brush. The highlighted portion of the stone was simply generated by using the "sunburst" effect, integral to paintshop and which I'm sure is contained in photoshop as well. For fun, I also added another transparent layer of the woman which included use of the "Colored edges" effect, slightly blurred and rendered at 21% opacity in order to apply a slightly "glowing" effect. No, at present, I currently do not have a drawing pad, but effectively "sandwiching" a shadow in between two layers managed to take care of the bulk of the work on this occasion, with only a few rudimentary embellishments needed to complete the effect.
      • hmmmm, interesting, i might have to try that. i have always just tried to hand(mouse) draw in all my effects. thanks _
