Hey what's up Guy's and Gal's I was just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a good tutorial for convincing catch lights. Or any ideas on how you would do it I not having much luck coming up with anything very convincing. Thanx in advance :>

colin's suggest works great.
You can change the shape of the brush too, to emulate different light sources. So if the light is soft with a gradual transition to the shadow you can make a larger catch light (soft box or window shaped) etc.
Have fun. Look at fashion magazines to see the shapes of catch lights and work with the paint brushes to emulate them.
i'm working on a set of brushes for different types of lighting, personally.
