Software: Adobe Photoshop CC

Tutorial: Blue LightingTV YouTube Channel

As seen on some of my other postings, I love doing space based images. So when Blue Lighting posted a tutorial on creating an eclipse image, I guess I could not say no.

Tattoo stye bird

tatoo-bird

Software: Adobe Illustrator CC

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

Once again, I have chosen an image that was created in Adobe Illustrator, even though my natural instinct would be to create the outline in Illustrator and do the texture in Photoshop. One of the most interesting parts of the image is the texture is masked to the bird shape. Masking in Photoshop is second nature to me, but until this tutorial I had never done it in Illustrator. In fact, although I knew it was possible to do masking in Illustrator, I was not 100% sure how to do it. I guess that is there important part of a tutorial, learning new techniques.

Haunted House

Haunted House

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS CC

Tutorial: www.photoshoptutorials.ws

Halloween is over for 2014 (actually Christmas and New Year’s are also over), but a haunted house image never truly goes out of style (except for birthday and Christmas cards).

This image was a fun exercise in image editing and layer styles and adjustment layers.

Luna

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1, Adobe Illustrator CS 5.1

Tutorial: Spoon Graphics Blog

From the number of space images I have created, I guess I have a love of space and it exploration. This image is a bit different in it is not trying to be scientifically accurate, it has a bit of a romantic feel to it. I have to admit that the colour pallet reminds me of the work David Blackwood (see http://www.davidblackwood.com/).

Puppet Lady

puppet_lady

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: PDS Fan

This surreal image of a puppet lady was originally supposed to be done for around Halloween, but life got busy and I just got around to doing this image. The image has a surreal / gothic look to it, but some how I feel this would be the type of image that would be created/used by Tim Burton (maybe Corpse Bride, Alice in Wonderland or Big Fish).

Candle Light

candle-light

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: psdbox.com

This is very much an image that is created by layer styles and adjustment layers. In fact there are ten different adjustment layer in this image, but this is how an late evening image of the mountains and sky, a foreground image dry lake bed taken in early evening and an image of a model taken in a studio can be brought together to create a unified image.

Professional Widow

Professional_widow

Software: Adobe Photoshop CS 5.1

Tutorial: psdbox.com

Ah, the femme fatale, a woman of mysterious and seductive charm who makes your heart say yes, but your mind says danger! Literature is full of enchantress who leads men happily to their compromising and deadly fate. This image tries to capture the hypnotic power a femme fatale has over prey. I say tries, since this image is on the normal world, where a femme fatale works on a plane beyond the normal world.

This Photoshop image is a great use of masks, layer blends and layer styles to create an effective mood of seductive danger.
