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!

Thank you for sharing this with us. I will definitely use these. I have been self teaching myself how to do photo manipulation and it has been a long road. Hopefully these will help me as well. :heart:

Nice group of tutorials!

Wonder if these would work on a program called Photo Explosion.
kuschelirmel's avatar
I've never heard of the programme, but unless it's got layers and blend modes and all that I doubt they will. You can always try though :)
Gariandos's avatar
I know it's got layers, not too sure if it has blend modes, though.

Nice article about the art of drawing surreal, but I think I liked teaching drawing thanks
kuschelirmel's avatar
the tutorials are not about drawing as such, they're about photomanipulation. If you're interested to learn more about that art form, you can read this article. :heart:
