Tutorial Treasury 04

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 8, 2012, 2:34 AM


In the Tutorial Treasury, you will find tutorials geared towards Photomanipulators and some that will deal with a broader subjects, such as lighting, colour etc. The tutorials will be from dA as well as from all over the web and in each episode, there will be 3 to 6 tutorials for your reading pleasure (any more than that I guess no one will have time to read anyway). If you find any good ones, shoot me a note so I can include them in the next installment!

The Tutorials

Photoshop-rose-text-1 by kuschelirmel
Create realistic rose text using some simple layer styles and custom made brushes. This Photoshop rose text will not be completly made from scratch, we'll have to use a beautiful Rose PNG stock image. A nature inspired text effect can be used in so many creative ways, to decorate your scrapbook for example.

Beautiful compilation, thank you! I've been using Photoshop for years now, but I'm still learning because it's bloody impossible to know every trick and technique ever, so feel free to point all the nay-sayers who say this stuff is too basic to my comment :)

oh so everyone comes to dA after they've reached a certain level? Well that would be news to me. (You do realize that that makes you sound quite arrogant, don't you?)

If you already know about those techniques, maybe check out the older installments of the series. I try to mix things up. Or maybe actually read the tutorials (not just the abstracts), often they include some tips and tricks that are not obvious at first glance.
