As I promise a while back~ This is the 2nd tutorial of an illo I did for Dragon Magazine, just to show the general progress for it and not focusing on anything specific this time:) Again, the final image's nothing too interesting, it's a scene about a lost adventurer coming out of a cave in the middle of some Persian desert~

Cee yaw~!

Make any photograph appear as if it was taken on a warm sunny day with this tutorial! Made for Photoshop, but should be translatable to other programs =)

There is also an action file for this effect, which can be found [here]

This is my step by step painting tutorial which I promised to do for you few weeks ago.

You can download it from here:
Part 1: [link]
Part 2: [link]
Part 3:[link]

It's a big file, I know, but it's worth it!!!


The tutorial is divided in 3 parts. The first part is painting, second is editing, and third one is stylizing and final touch ups.
I didn't write or explain anything at all because it's hard for me to explain how I paint. It's easier for me if I'll just show you. Just start from the beginning and explore every layer I painted. I broke the painting down in about 40 layers total.There are three Photoshop files and one .abr file with all my brushes from different artists. Most of these brushes I use all the time. I like big variety so I try using all of them.

In order to understand this tutorial you should have basic skills of Photoshop. If you don't , then try to take a few tutorials online to figure it out.
Also, please respect the rules and don't post this tutorial all over the internet. You know how upsetting it is to find your work all over the net.

Thank you for supporting me and have fun exploring my tutorial :)

Cheers,
Alisa.

Ohmuhgawd. Six and a half hours. :faint: Finally done, though. I hope it does someone good. If you find a typo, you get a cookie. It's been proofread by me and my roommate, so it should be flawless. :D

Let me know if there's anything you need clarification on as well. It's entirely possible that I may use lingo that only makes sense to me. Don't judge.

Enjoy. ;)

Who is using your art? Surely without your permission...
I found my photo in articles, covers for stories, covers for youtube videos, lots of post in tumbrl uncredited, profiles on facebook with my picture, even my picture in a competition on slenderman... and I only upload this photo here on DA and on Shadowness!

Maybe it can be useful for you too...

I absolutely love looking at before/afters so I thought I'd do some of my own. I added a short description next to four of them so to explain how the photo was taken and give out advice and stuff.

I really don't consider myself an expert in photoshop nor an expert in photography. I simply felt like it'd be cool for you guys to see how I work. :)

enjoy your reading lol

I learned to paint simply by looking. If your wondering what happens in my head on each of the panels. Nothing ! I'm listening to my music. I hear this a lot from one of my favorite artists who say "When you paint, let go everything you know about painting". It took me a while to fully understand what they meant.

"Blind energy" is a good thing. When one begins to paint, everything you know should disappear and the emotional side should take over." Jeanean Songco Martin

I really didn't feel like covering my process with useless information to make this a proper tutorial. It's not what goes on inside my head. I simply paint what I see, not what I know.

Guidelines, ideal proportions and premade compositions that they teach us in our art school they become more a distraction for an artist. If you can let that go maybe this tutorial might not be so useless after all ;)

Oil on canvas, 30" by 24"
Took me 3 days.

If you have any questions let me know I'll be happy to explain.
