Amazing, this is really helpful seeing how softer shadows differentiate from AO. Is there a term for the indirect color reflection you added on the last image? Other than that or like, global illumination? I see this a lot in oil paintings and people often seem to forget about it. It really makes things seem beautiful and come to life.

Hey artspell is this close to the idea of ambient occlusion I get the basic idea from what you said, but I'm not sure if I'm over doing it.

Hey just wondering, is ambient occlusion the same as core shadows? 
Reply
:icondavidadhinaryalojaya:
DavidAdhinaryaLojaya Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Hi, 
core shadow is different with AO
AO is more like the shadow between 2 near objects.

Oh! I always wanted to know how this 3D effect works!! What is AO? And how do you mix with shadow? =O 
Reply
:icondavidadhinaryalojaya:
DavidAdhinaryaLojaya Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2014  Professional Filmographer
AO is short of Ambient Occlusion. It represent the dark area that created from 2 or more objects that being close to each other. 
I know it's hard to explain it, you can search example in google. 
For the tutorial, you can read it in my blog. So you can mix with shadow :D
hope this helps

I'm trying this out, but I'm curious what was your paint brush settings or what paint brush did you use for the shadow and ambient occlusion? Or what was the layer mode?
Reply
:icondavidadhinaryalojaya:
DavidAdhinaryaLojaya Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Hi, I usually used a 20-30% opacity brush with a 100% flow. The layer mode is multiply :D
you can check on explanation in my blog :)

Is the AO created in a separate layer then merged with the shadow layer?
Reply
:icondavidadhinaryalojaya:
DavidAdhinaryaLojaya Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Professional Filmographer
yes, the AO layer should be separated for better control. but it's up to you if you want it to be combine with shadow layer ;)
Reply
:iconxshinku:
xShinku Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
Okay! Thank you! And one more thing! When you did the AO Layer, did you block the character in white agin then start paint in the darkest areas?
Reply
:icondavidadhinaryalojaya:
DavidAdhinaryaLojaya Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2014  Professional Filmographer
yes, I did block the character with the light grey color and I start the AO painting there.
Good luck! :D
