Blend it: Lighting for BeginnersTutorial Tuesdays
Hi there! In this tutorial, we're going to take a look at something we all struggle with - lighting. After reviewing the basics, we will analyse several common lighting situations and share some useful resources to help you with further learning.
This tutorial is a part of our new monthly series at CRPhotomanipulation - and we're looking forward to delivering some great content! Let's start!
First things first - let's take a look at the anatomy of light and shadow.
On the image you can see above, there are several terms that you should remember - each of these elements is essential to creating realistic images. Firstly - the light here comes from our upper left side, hence why on the very top of the ball you can see a highlight (1). The transition from the part of the ball covered with light to the part covered with shadow starts at the terminator (2) (k
Photomanipulation walkthroughStep 1: Idea (message, composition)
You decided that you want to make a photomanipulation. But what to make? There are so many photomanipulations already out there and mostly with the same theme. So you decide you don't just want to stick a pretty girl onto a beautiful background. No you want to be original and have your manipulation portray a message everyone can relate to.

Of course if you choose to portray something as love there are many ways to do so. Do you want it to be a surreal depiction of love, or dark, fantasy, sci-fi, conceptual, humourous... your choice will of course decide the whole 'feel' of the image.
So choose wisely as they say.
Now that you have your theme you nee
Overview: My TutorialsThis is an overview of the Photomanipulation / Photoshop Tutorials available in my Gallery. Some are a little old (still using PS7), but the principles are still valid (even though some of the really old ones may seem outdated aesthetically). Generally, the further down in each list, the newer the tutorials. Tutorials with this symbol are video tutorials - the newer ones can also be found on my youtube channel.
As of April 2018, I have my own website artofkuschelirmel.de where I will host all my tutorials in the future - I will also upload previews here, but on the BLOG everything will be up first So if you like, hop on over and if you are feeling super generous , I'd love to see you comment there, too. So far, there is no mailinglist or anything yet (gotta set everything
Intro to Photobashing (Textures)Digital Art Week
Photographs can be used in a variety of different ways to help speed up your painting process. Some example of these uses are: to get an initial color palette, to fuse multiple images together to create a new one, or to use a photo to add textures to forms you have already established on your canvas. Working with deadlines doesn't typically allow you time to spend 20 hours in rendering a painting to completion, especially when working on products that require near photo realistic level in details. This is just a basic guide to show you a few tools, to add some texture to forms in a quick and easy way.
