what the hell does that have to do with making a brush?


Your tutorial mentions it: "Tip: Dodging and burning make fore great depth, and this type of brush is nothing less than awesome for doing just that."

I've heard the term before on this site and was just wondering what it meant.

Using a custom brush to dodge and burn.. or
you can burn slightly on the brush layout before finalizing a brush to adjust opacity before saving it as a brush..

but that is in the tip, and has nothing to do with the tutorial it's self. Dodge and burn are highly useful tools though.. good ones to practice a lot.

Well, actually you mentioned it again in your reply to Tofuthegreat: "For the monkey... the fauna i made using a bunch of brushes I created like 19 or 20 of them.. along with dodge and burn reyrey tipped me in on to bring out more depth."

I'm not an expert or familiar with the terms that you guys might find to be common knowledge. I was just curious what "dodge and burn" means.

As someone who's never made a brush before, this may really help me down that road. Great tut.

dodge and burn are tools to lighten and darken (and sponge tool for desaturating)... there are three kinds of dodging and burning... highlights, midtones and shadows... try messing around with these tools for a while and youŽll figure out what they do in no time.
