Photoshop Quickie

Quick demo on matte vs gloss clichés.

  1. I'm still confused about glossy, like how big to make the highlight and how far it stretches along a surface...

  2. It's all about experimentation. For me it's best to get some reference images when you're approaching a lighting effect. Also it can help to render products in similar lighting situations, this way you can continually refine the illusion in each new rendering. I'll try to make a tutorial that shows how glossy materials work on complex surfaces. Thanks for stopping by!
