HOW TO CREATE A NIGHT FROM DAY SCENE
The first picture is an example from what we can often see in beginners’ works. This ugly effect is due to 2 mains mistakes: the lack of settings BEFORE the change of light and the use of a single folder (here a blue folder on a multiply mode) to do the change from day to night. This tutorial will show you how to give a natural aspect to this change.
1. ADJUST THE COLORS OF ALL THE ELEMENTS TOGETHER, BEFORE CHANGING DAY TO NIGHT
It is a current mistake to imagine that the change from day to night will be enough to blend the layers together and that it is not necessary to do this work. This is wrong: if you do not do this work, the lack of blending will still be visible after your changes. But you do not need at this stage to get a blue night effect, just to blend all the elements together. This is an example of what I did here (of co
The main faults of a beginner (Me in 2012)... and how to correct them.

I was a bit ashamed about this picture done in 2012 and chose to redo it entirely (with another house, due to the removal from dA of the first one). But what were the main mistakes and how can we correct them?
Here are the faults which immediately grabbed my eyes:
In 2012, I didn't master the adjustment layers and I tried to blend the pictures together using a full of colored layers (colors picked on every source layer) on a soft light mode: it may be a solution sometimes, but it often gives a bad result as we can see here: The foliages are too yellow compared to the rest of the picture; the house looks like a visible collage; t
HOW TO ADD A REALISTIC SHADOW ON A GROUND TO
My picture was lighted by an early morning sun, I had to think to the way to add some shadows from the balustrade to the ground on the foreground. Here is the way I used and I hope it will be useful for you.
1. COPY AND PASTE on a new layer the balustrade (or any object you want to project the shadow).
Then place the copy just under the original layer, using the Free Transform tool.
2. CHANGE IT INTO A BLACK SILHOUETTE
Using the Image > Adjustments > Brightness Contrast setting, as shown below (Brightness minimum, Contrast maximum).
3. TRACE SOME DIRECTIONAL LINES FROM THE LIGHT SOURCE
Choose the light source (
Huge thanks to whom I sent a note and she answered kindly, giving some advices how to start this
Any comment is appreciated :3
I`m Mocarro and I going to tell a lil` about myself
I`m 23 yrs old, Hungarian girl. I adore rats, I have 2 fancy rats. I always loved (and love) art, trying to draw for a long time.... after all I have to accept the fact I cannot draw, so I give it up, but I still want to create fabulous pictures. How can I do that if I cannot draw, paint anything? I choose the Photoshop and the digital art like photomanipulating, making stamps, making web desings. I love to do this kind of art, because, a girl like me who hasn`t got a big talent in drawing, painting can make nice pictures even high quality works too. So I just love it. But sometimes (okay, always) I feel myself an outsider, because Devart has so many great drawer and painter girls and boys and they`ve such a big talent. But no, I don`t leave because of that
Most of all I`m:
I`m a self - taugth artist (if I can call myself an artist)
I`m Hungarian, Hungarian language is my first language so I often do grammar mistakes, forgive me please (It`s hard to thinking like an English person or an American person for example. The Hungarian thinking is very different from them I think.)
I`m strange. I really can be happy for some new friends, but other people often do not understand my opinion about things.
I`m really happy if you write a comment one of my pics, but you not have to do that just in case if you want. But I`m really glad for the comments, and answering them friendly.
OMG I LOVE rats!!!!!
And most of all: I love to be here, love your artstyle and you`re very welcomed on my page
