Draw a stone angel in Photoshop

Stephanie Valentin teaches us how to draw a stone angel in Photoshop. You create a new document of 1100 x 200 pixels. You sketch the character with a black brush of 5 pixels and 100% of opacity on a new layer. Keep this layer of the whole painting process. Then create a new layer, filling the shape with a dark color. Use a hard brush of 25 pixels and 100% opacity. Create a new layer Light 1, apply large lights with a soft round brush of 20 pixels and 35% opacity. Apply a Gaussian blur of 8 pixels. A new layer is called Light II. Apply more defined lights with a soft round brush of 10 pixels and 35% opacity. Apply a Gaussian blur of 4 pixels. You can merge all the layers except the sketch. The first tool is the smudge tool. Use a width between 10 and 40 pixels and strength between 50% and 70%. Use two soft round brushes, white and black, to add more lights and shadows. The width should be between 10 and 20 pixels and opacity between 5% and 10%. Always remember the source of the lights. Create a dark background with effects like smoke.
