Gradient Tutorial by damie-m Gradient Tutorial by damie-m
Made this because I feel it's one of the biggest steps that a lot of artists seem to miss. Hopefully it's of use to someone!

Obviously if you have other questions that aren't answered in this tutorial, just let me know :)

Edit:
D'oh, thanks for the DD guys :D

Gradient Tutorial by *nanya -- Suggester's words: I can make gradients on a blank slate in Photoshop Elements, but making gradients on a subject has been another matter completely. This explains how to do so in minute detail. Excellent information that can be used even by beginners starting to explore the intricacies of digital art.

This is such an important subject! I didn't really know anything about rendering, values, edge control etc until my design class in animation school started. Wow, did that drive it home. We were drilled on "organize your values, keep the gradients moving you around the picture, stack your values within the gradients". Rinse and repeat.

I'm still a long shot from having mastered these skills, but tutorials like these are really good refreshers and clarify so many questions that come up later. Thanks a lot for this, it's a great learning tool! Certainly deserved its DD.
