Brush blending modes - tutorial by vesner Brush blending modes - tutorial by vesner
Painting fire, slimes and wounds in one go - an introduction to brush blending modes in Photoshop.
Recently the first page of dA filled with all sorts of step-by-step tutorials as to how paint THINGS. No one ever tries to explain how to paint these things easier. So here I am showing you how to make it simple. As always try to experiment - change brushes, colours, blending modes and try out new stuff. Have fun!

You will find the brushes I use here:

thanks for this, just have one question. for the wounds i start with a light red, but it won't go darker than a full red, nowhere near black like in your picture. do you change the red color during painting or am i missing something?
Thanks in advance!

You probably didn't set the brush mode to 'multiply'.

i thouth so myself, but i definitely set the brush mode it to multiply. even now tried again. won't go any darker than red...
do i have to set the layer i'm painting on also on multiply? (doesn't seem to do anything...)

are there any other brush settings that maybe causing the trouble? or do i need a special red color for it work?

Huh... maybe try picking a darker colour of red then? It should always work unless you picked pure white but maybe the difference is so subtle you can't see it after only a few strokes.
Your layer should usually be set to normal. It doesn't need to be changed to a different blending mode unless you're going for a very specific effect.

i think i've found it...
if i use a light red color e.g. : #ff6376 - it won't go any darker...
the brightness (HSB) of the color mustn't be 100%. anything below seems to work, e.g.: #fc6274 (nearly same color as above, just 99% brightness).

can you confirm this behaviour?
