1. Realistic and painterly scene with 3D elements in Photoshop
Book illustrator – David Navia goes through the Photoshop, ZBrush, MODO and KeyShot workflow for his sci-fi and fantasy image, Coffee and TV.

2. Far Away from Home – Realistic scene in Photoshop
Andrew Averkin gives us a detailed walk through the processes behind his amazing image Far Away from Home.

I dedicate this work to my wife. Her parents live very far away in Siberia, and as the distance is pretty huge, she has to travel a long way to get there. She misses her parents quite a lot because she can’t visit them very often. Probably everyone has this feeling when you are far away from home, family, friends, and far from the place where you live and from everything that you love and care about. With this image I’ve tried to capture those feelings of missing everything that is important to you. A lonely girl standing in an old train station platform after a rainy day brings these emotions to the mind, yet the morning sunshine brings hope that soon we’ll be close to everything that we love.

4. Hair masking – how to cut out hair in Photoshop

Cutting out people in Photoshop ready for compositing can be quite a time-consuming task, especially if they have lots of curly or fine, flyaway hair.
Luckily, the Refine Edge tool is there in Photoshop CS5, CS5.5, CS6, CC or CC2014 to save you time by doing a lot of the hard work for you by tapping Photoshop’s built-in Smart Radius and Edge Detection technology.
Here photographer Tigz Rice has created a quick, 9-step tutorial using photography of cabaret performer Aurora Galore to help you get the most out of cutouts in Photoshop using Refine Edge.

5. Dispersion Effect with Photoshop CS6

The dispersion effect is relatively straight forward in Photoshop CC but can be tricky to get right. The basic idea is to separate the subject from the background and then create a copy of the subject layer. One of the subject layers is then morphed using the Liquify tool to nearly fill the entire frame.
The morphed layer is then hidden from view and using a combination of layer masks and splatter brushes we reveal the morphed subject while hiding parts of the original subject. The result creates the feeling that the subject is somehow being blown away.
