NEW WORK WEDNESDAY!!! Gradient Stylezzzz!

Tried out some gradient shading techniques in Photoshop with this little sketch. I'm digging the layering effects that you can create with multiple selections and overlapping of the gradient/shadow forms. I first made the sketch of the female character, then I went in with the lasso tool and selected areas of the line drawing. Next, I used the gradient tool, set from black to transparent, to create the angled lighting effects on the selected area. Multiple selections + multiple layers = nice contrast and depth to the shadows and figure.
