Abstract Shapes

I should probably mention the abstract shapes in the brighter background. I used two brushes to make these basic abstract shapes and then used the wrap tool to change any shape I wanted. I also used the smudge tool to break out the shape and create spatter shapes as I wished (all of these brushes can be found in the "Blur's Good Brush" package) (Fig.20).

Final Composition

I added more blue flow effects to enhance the armor and add more interest to the image. I used the color balance tool to correct the color palette and give it more contrast between the warm (bright values) and cold (dark values).

And finally it was done (Fig.21)!

I think he meant that as "I drew a light shape to know where the light will come from".

what did you mean by "set a light" you meant figuratively and you just blended wth the light in that direction?
