step by step
One day, on my way to work I decided to make a small detour on my way to the subway and took a walk through one of Lisbon's most charismatic parks. It was a cold February morning, no one was in sight and the sound of morning traffic was subdued by the trees. I was immersed into a natural environment and it almost seemed magical.
Bronze Dragon (detail) by Keyem Beyit After painting exclusively in Corel Painter for five years, I decided to finally learn how to paint using Photoshop. I found Painter pretty intuitive to learn, since the brushes and papers act very much like their real-world counterparts. Not the case with Photoshop. Without going into a lot of technical detail, here’s a simplified explanation of the difference between brushes in Painter and in Photoshop. Painter: The brushes interact with color on the canvas, as in traditional media.
Let's take a walkthrough of one of my digital paintings done in adobe photoshop . The brushes and exact methods used throughout were not recorded but I will make general comments on each step if applicable. The original reference for this painting was a photo taken by Epoxy5.
Here a small tutorial which will enable you to paint in Photoshop a basic landscape which could be thereafter detailed. The tools essential with its realization will be the brushes and their settings. In a new document, whose size is 1900 X 900 pixels we will first paint the sky.

Sky - On two separate layers, paints with a hard brush - a blue color and a yellow color with orange tint on other.
Article by Socar Myles. Before you start: This is a fairly advanced tutorial–definitely more difficult than the clouds tutorial . It covers my whole painting process, from sketch to finishing touches, and can be applied to either Photoshop painting or oil painting. The example in question is a digital painting, but I will also describe how I would render the same effects in oils, for anyone who would like to follow along on a non-electronic canvas.
This is probably the longest post that I have ever posted, and by probably I mean it is. Anyway this tutorial was originally supposed to be published in SKETCH! magazine. I was contacted to do a tutorial so I put this together but for some reason it was left on the shelf at SKETCH! and never published.
Introduction After receiving some positive feedback to my last work “yuka” I decided to write a detailed tutorial about creating process. My main goal was to create a painting which was really detailed. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to do it without a real photograph so I started to look for something that would interest me and make me want to spent a lot of hours painting it in photoshop.
When I saw the James Cameron 'Avatar' movie for the first time I was very surprised. I've seen it 2 more times. The visual effects are amazing.
