Hmm, ok, I understand the concept behind the last 2 steps in principle, but not in their execution! Have any handy tutorials you could point me toward, by any chance? :3

Sure! Hm.. I don't know many tutorials specifically about that,
but I'll tell you what I know.

Ambient light is of course light that effects the figure from the
environment it's in, that is not direct light. Imagine all the light
reflecting from things like the sky, ground, etc back onto the figure.
To do this I lightly brushed warm yellow-tinted strokes with a
Screen layer style setting over parts of the creature that would receive
the most ambient light.

Transmission/subsurface scattering = light that shrines somewhat
through the form. It's what is happening when you see your skin glow
reddish when a light is shining through it. Hence why I added a pinkish
overlay on parts where the skin is receiving light + whenever it is more
translucent. Which is a lot, considering the squid aspect of this guy.

Hey, thanks for the advice! You have saved me many hours lying awake pondering these questions, heh heh.

So, the ambient light involves reflected light from all over the environment, right? From the sky, the ground, close objects, etc? I guess my question is: why did you choose a yellow tint on your screen layer instead of going with colors based on the environment?

For the subsurface scattering, I think I understand - wherever light shines through thin or translucent tissue, the blood will show through. Have you ever tried subsurf with another hue? What if your creature had blue blood, for example?
