I made another layer over the base shading, and set it to a second shading layer (on top of my lines and color layers). I set this layer to Multiply, then select just the character with the select tool, then use the gradient tool (my favorite tool in PhotoShop, lol) to make a gradient of the shadows. :) Does that make sense?

For the base shading layer I just use a brush with soft edges and erase the bits I don't want with an eraser with soft edges. ;3

I know what you mean hehe, i tried gradient in some images but most of them look.. flat XD

I do erase that too as for basic shading :"D

What a gorgeous character :love:
The composition if great - those low clouds give a sense of height to the setting and the snow looks fabulous :D
Character expression and pose are awesome too :)

Spyro: I never even thought about that with the clouds, but you're right, lol. xD I'm glad I did it that way now. Thanks! :)

Well worth the wait; thanks again! :aww:
