Tutorial Number: 363 Made with: Anime Studio Pro 11.2 Level: Intermediate
This tutorial is to show you all how to use masking to create a gradient lighting effect that you would use for making flashlight or torch effects. It's pretty simple to achieve but you need to make two separate pieces of artwork .
You can do this by using another program such as Illustrator like I did or you can do it in Anime Studio by creating a background, duplicating and then changing all of the colors. I just used Illustrator because it's much easier for me to create backgrounds in it!
Once you've done this, you really only need to use a mask and use the LAYER blur function to make it look more realistic. (if that's what you're going for.)
As always, when you think of masking always remember it is a way to hide or reveal things!!!!!!!!
