Hello everyone!

Having a little issue with highlights and shadows:

As seen on the image, whenever I make a highlight or a shadow using a brush, it looks horrible with those lines, same happens with shadows.

Same happens with this wing, when I was trying to use Brightness/Contrast to make it darker and it turned bright green on the darkest part. (I also tried with a brush and same thing happened)

I probably have some color settings messed up but I have no clue what.
I was using the soft round brush at 13% Opacity, 100% Flow

Thanks in advance!

I always create my shadows on a separate layer, then add a gausian blur, it spreads the shadow out naturally. Not sure with regards to the bright green query, I'll have to have a think about that.
