I made a tutorial! This one covers some basic terms you might hear when talking about digital artwork: "pixel", "screen resolution", "image dimension", "PPI" (with a note on "DPI"), and "high resolution image" - important things for digital artists to know and understand, I feel.

These are the images I used as examples:

Imagination by Nightlyre Desert Queen by Nightlyre Reptilian Bronze (Clearance Print!) by Nightlyre Ocean's Fury by Nightlyre

I made this quick little tutorial for you guys, because I couldn´t find any good explanations on the Mixer Brush Settings. Here we go! :D
Any questions or additional comments are welcome you guys!

Hiya Deviants!

Not sure how much of a tutorial this is, as it's just to show how I work with some of my images.
Each job I do can be very different (as you'll see in my gallery), so this is just one way, for one style.

I've tried to explain it in a way that will work for people that work with a mouse too, and not just a tablet.

I've also tried to explain WHY I do some of the things in places too, so I hope it's not too much waffle :D


There are probably plenty of ways to get to the same end result, this is just the one that I use :)


Sorry that it's a bit boring, and the airbrush part was REALLY hard to explain without being in a video :(

It's also a bit rushed as I had to squeeze it between jobs, and internet issues, so please excuse any bad spelling etc. :D

I really hope it helps some of the peeps on here though.

p.s. :- I know Bambi has a missing foot. I used a pic from the book I was working on :P

A while back I uploaded a Catalog Cover I did featuring drippy paint over metal layers. In the process of creating a drippy paint tutorial based on it I realized there was a complete second tutorial waiting just in how to do the text effect. Thus, this tutorial.
Feel free to use this tutorial but don't forget to play with it and make the effect your own! Doing this word-for-word means you're not doing your own design, you're doing someone else's. Use this as a jumping-off point and get creative!

The original cover and the drippy paint tutorial, as well as my other two tutorials:

I rendered a series of WIPs while creating my latest piece, The Coming of Spring [link]
This is intended to show my process and how I go about doing a photomanipulation. I am assuming that you generally know where things are in Photoshop, but if something is unclear, don't hesitate to ask. I can always add clarification and some screenshots. :)

This is my first walkthrough! I hope it is helpful. Let me know if there are ways that I can make it more so. :heart:

Images used:


To my watchers who are new to GIMP: I checked and you can easily do all of this. :)

To add a layer mask, go to the Layer menu, masks. Select white for reveal all and black for hide all.

To use the radial gradient: Select the gradient tool (left of pencil). Set opacity around 20%, select the FG to transparent gradient type, select radial shape.

There is no Color Dodge option for the blending mode, but it looks like Dodge should give a similar result.

PAGE ONE OF THE PLANETARY TUTORIAL.
SECOND PAGE WILL COVER RING PLACEMENT ON THE PLANET.

I have not created the 2nd page yet but I will when I begin a second planetary ring digital painting again.

This tutorial isn't exactly "Great" but it should give you a general idea of what to do.


EDIT: HIT ALT+CLICK WITH THE MARQUEE TOOL IF YOU ARE HAVING TROUBLE GETTING A GOOD CIRCLE.
For my new comp have been having that problem, if you too have same issue hit Alt+click to get the marquee circle centered around where you are clicking!

The super duper long guide to cleaning up lineart and separating it from the background tutorial.

It took me a long time to figure out how to do this. My lineart is so messy that I had to tweak and change eight other tutorials on this topic. It might not be the fastest or best way but it sure worked for me!

This is for PHOTOSHOP CS5

This is the piece that was worked on:

Enjoy!

I really, REALLY should not have spent time on this right now with all I have to do, but damn it! I'm so excited! And it's so helpful!

I do hope this is all easy to read and clear, sorry it's so large, but there is much I felt needed to be shared to get a lot of the potential Gradient Masks have!

As said, I will take Q/A to fill in blanks and change the file later on to reflect these gray areas. Enjoy, and I would LOVE to see what people do with this new knowledge! :meow:

EDIT:
HOLY COW! I did NOT expect this to get so popular and loved in just 3 days! :wow: Thank you all! I'm so happy that this is something you all can find useful and learn from. All of the comments so far too; it's all very encouraging, and I hope to share more hidden tips and tricks to the power of art :love:

Edit: Please only leave a comment about the actual tutorial. I'm getting a lot of irrelevant critiques on the lineart, which really doesn't have anything to do with learning to color. ;0;
