Tutorial:  Image Inside Text with a Twist from How to Create BADA$$ Effects in Photoshop

This image shows how a reasonable, but not great image can be turned into something rather effective. In this case the final image could be easily a basis for a motocross event poster. Using layer styles, brushes and layer masks the blue splatter behind the main image is quickly created.

Tutorial:  Torn Paper Portrait with Photoshop – Blue Lighting

A quick an easy Photoshop effect, in this case using the power of layer styles and smart objects. The use of the layer styles gives the face image it’s colour / black & white locations (helped along with a mask). The power of the smart objects is in that it allows the face image to be changes quickly. In the case shown below it took less than 2 minutes (sort of cool).

A third sports image in a row – I guess we now have a trend. What made this image creation interesting to me was the creation and using of the grid in the background. It was quick and easy, but effective – it helps make the image visually more interesting.

I guess summer is basiclly here. A good sign of that is the last two entries into the gallery have been sports images. I am not sure it is a trend, but worth taking note of.

Once again a quick and easy image to create – the best part was how easy it was to move the overlay blocks to make the image work better. This was an image that doing some fiddling paid off with much better results.

Ferrari Sketch

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

There has always been a bit of a battle in my mind if I like photography or illustration better. Photography can capture all the reality of a moment in crystal clarity. Illustration can strip out the unnecessary and highlight the important aspects of an image in a way that can be difficult in a photograph. So I find this Photoshop technique to be in many ways the best of both worlds.
