Today's Daily Texture contains dark, rich hues of brown and gray, combined with a lighter area in the center to put your focus point. I used this texture on this portrait of a Baboon. She was sitting alone after just finishing an orange, and she looked up with the most soulful expression. I thought this texture went perfectly with her! First I masked out the background, leaving a little bit of the rock she was sitting on visible, to ground her. Then I duplicated the texture and placed it on top, setting it to multiply at 55%. I masked some of the multiply layer off of her face and body to enhance the light on those areas, as multiply made those too dark. While she looked really nice at that point, I felt her fur colors were too cool in combination with the texture and I needed to warm her up. Duplicating the texture layer again, I placed it on top and set it to overlay at 100% - this brightened her face more and allowed the fur to pick up the warmer tones from the texture.
