1.Create a low-poly portrait using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
Here Brazilian designer Breno Bitencourt shows you step-by-step how to create a stylish low-poly portrait in Illustrator and Photoshop.
The secret to creating works in this style is working from the best reference photos – and first off Breno reveals how to capture these (using himself as a model). He then reveals how to work these up in Photoshop, then create a vector version in Illustrator.
Breno says you don’t need to be an expert in Illustrator or Photoshop to follow this tutorial, as long as you have a good eye – and a good amount of patience.
You can watch a video of the creative process of designing a low-poly portrait detailed in this tutorial.
2.Create urban type using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop
There’s no doubt about it, London is hip. In this tutorial Holland-based designer Bram Vanhaeren shows his admiration by creating a new piece that draws on all that’s great about the city – taking inspiration from last year’s Olympics, underground club scenes, and the vista from up high.
This masterclass is about giving your typography illustration a fresh touch and experimenting with traditional and digital media, mixing patterns and textures to give your work an extra personal spark. For this tutorial you will need basic Illustrator and Photoshop skills, as well as some watercolour paint.
Afterwards, you should have acquired hands-on techniques you can use on work ranging from typography and editorial to photo manipulation.
3.Create vibrant photos using Photoshop’s LAB mode
The LAB colour space is a rarely used feature of Photoshop, yet it has been around in Photoshop for years and is the perfect colour space for improving the colour in your images.
While RGB mode allows us to work with the red, green and blue channels separately – and CMYK lets us play with cyan, magenta, yellow and black – in LAB we have Lightness, A and B.
The L channel is the lightness channel, which acts independently of colour, while the A channel contains colour information for green and magenta, and the B channel contains colour information for blue and yellow.
By separating lightness from colour, we can make some quick adjustments to our image that, perhaps, might be time consuming or less accurate in another colour space.
Today we’ll be manipulating this photo of top burlesque performer Missy Fatale in the LAB colour space to increase the vibrancy of the colours: particularly in her hair, the snake and the green surroundings.

5.CREATE DISTORTED LADY FIGURE EFFECT IN PHOTOSHOP
In this tutorial, I will show you the steps used to create this distorted lady figure effect in Photoshop. We will use metal and rock texture over a female body to create the main effect, and use various image adjustments, layer masks and filter to fine-tune the effect.

8.Master stylish light effects in Photoshop
Applying lighting effects to model shots is a classic application of Photoshop, but through poor practice and overuse of the same tricks, it’s become something of a cliché. In this tutorial, Fabio Sasso shows you how to put a fresh, stylish spin on lighting effects.
The secret here is to keep it simple and tap a 1980s look without overdoing it. You’re aiming for a sophisticated feel, not retro pastiche. Of course, something that looks simple isn’t necessarily easy to create, but here Fabio guides you step by step through the filters, gradients and blending modes that will bring a classy edge to your art.
9.Rain & Water Effects in Photoshop
In this tutorial I will show you how to create realistic water effects in Photoshop using stock images. You will learn how to make basic retouching on skin and how to paint water and apply textures, create custom rain brushes and a sharpening technique to make awesome high impact effects.
10.Digital portrait painting secrets
Painter, like Photoshop, boasts a massive arsenal of powerful tools. The temptation for overenthusiastic artists is to employ as many as possible, but this can lead to cluttered, chaotic work. You can get stunning results with just a limited toolset, avoiding the daunting task of mastering a large number of tools.
Here Derek Lea focuses on a single tool, the Oil Palette Knife. It uses the colours and imagery from existing layers and spreads them around on a new layer, taking you far along the path from photo to painted portrait, with only fine detail to be added.
Derek began by assembling several elements in Photoshop, including a model shot and some hair extensions. The starting point for this tutorial, with a few predefined layers, can be found within the project files.
This is an adapted version of a tutorial in Derek Lea’s new book, Beyond Photoshop. Published by Focal Press, Beyond Photoshop shows you how can transfer your Photoshop skills into applications such as Illustrator, Painter, Cinema 4D, Poser and ZBrush – developing your style in new directions.
