1.Create Cool Colorful Portrait Effects
2.Compositing Tutorial – Colors and Light Effects
3.Create a digital painting of a robot mech
This tutorial by freelance concept artist Takumer Homma is a journey in creating a robot painting in Photoshop – though his techniques would work just as well in Corel Painter or even physical paints.
Here Takumer has focussed on art fundamentals such as gesture, lighting, tonal value, and composition. We will approach the painting using traditional art principles – using a series of the abstract shapes to establish the lights and the darks.
This is an approach that can be used in concept paintings for quick ideas and mood sketches to save time – while still allowing you to efficiently build on thwse to creating a convincing final artwork.
Takumer says that before jumping into painting, always start with some research to give yourself a head start and a direction – and a lot of reference images. Try not to rush this step, relax and be open to what you see.
While there are a great many Photoshop brushes he could have used for this tutorial – including many available for free online, Takumer found that he got best results using the default hard and soft round brushes for all except for the background.
4.Create beautiful lighting effects
In this tutorial, Toronto-based Murilo Maciel will reveal how he used Photoshop to create a fashion illustration with lighting effects, based around themes of beauty and light.
He describes this artwork – and the techniques behind it – as a more contemporary version of the first piece he ever created for us, back in 2007 (read it at here).
Murilo will detail the essential skills behind a modern fashion illustration – such as the subtle use of Photoshop’s retouch tool – and also show some lighting techniques that will give an extra sparkle to your artwork. Finally, he’ll demonstrate how adjustment layers can help you to quickly change the overall mood.
In the project files, you’ll find some 3D shapes that Murilo has created for this piece – though you can create your own. The core photography in this tutorial is from Shutterstock and can be downloaded from shutr.bz/YEKlsn, shutr.bz/18teUDb and shutr.bz/10aAt86 – but the techniques can be applied to any well-lit model shot, and Murilo believes you’ll learn more when adapting what’s detailed here to your own photography and style of work. “Use the techniques to create something new, adapt them, mix them up,” he explains. “Use new things you have learned before.”
