Winter Wonderland (Background) Tutorial

As already indicated for a while, I have done a new tutorial :dance:
This time, the topic is backgrounds and useful tools / methods to create them -- but of course those methods can be easily used for the rest of the image, too.

I love deviantART! Tutorial Content:
This tutorial focuses on cutting and blending techniques using the following Photoshop tools:
Note that this tutorial was created using Photoshop CC 2018 -- most things should work the same in older versions though (if it is something very new it is stated in the tutorial).
  • Smart Objects
  • Layer Masks
  • Vector Masks
  • Gradient Tool
  • Brush Tool
  • Pen Tool

I can't wait to see what you will do with this! Please show me!

Bullet; Purple  I have a collection for images done using my tutorials (and that credit the tut) here - I hope we can fill it some more!

My tutorials and most of my stock will always be free, but if you're looking for a little something extra (for example exclusive stock releases you will not be able to get here + behind the scenes looks and pre-releases of premium dA stock), this is where you can support me and look over my shoulder :heart:

I do not allow translations either, simply because I cannot check the quality of the translation when I don't speak the language. Plus, these tuts take a lot of work and all I want in return is a little feedback and credit.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for this!  I'm trying to work on one now and feel like I'm beating my head against the wall because it just doesn't look right.  Thank you so much!
