Making Of 'Equilibrium' by Henning Ludvigsen Step 1: Line art I've always been fascinated by realism, and because of this it is really important to me that the base line-art sketch has got proper proportions.

Photoshop CS5 Digital Painting Tutorial One of the exciting new features in Photoshop CS5 is the more natural way of painting, opening new ways to express your creativity – even if (like me) you’re not a true painter. In this tutorial I will show you the techniques and the tricks to convert a photo into a great-looking painting.

In addition to pressure sensitivity, the new Wacom also senses the angle of the stylus, allowing for even more realistic results.
