In this tutorial, Steve Caplin will explain how to place a 3D model into a scene and match the perspective of an existing photograph by combining Photoshop’s 3D features with the vanishing point filter. Let’s get started!
One of the most common tasks in Photoshop is to remove some one or some thing from a background and place it on top of another. In this tutorial, Martin Perhiniak will explain how to do this in a completely non-destructive way. Let’s get started!
In the last episode of this series we showed you how to create several 3D objects in Photoshop. In this tutorial, we will show you how to add texture to those objects to create a realistic 3D wine glass, bottle, and table top; each with a varying degree of transparency, refraction, and reflection. Let’s get started!
Drawing a complex digital illustration involves a lot of hard work, patience, and quite a bit of time. In this video tutorial, Adam Cairns will show you how to draw an illustration using traditional techniques. He will then show you how to ink it, scan it, touch it up, and finally, color it with Photoshop. This tutorial includes lots of tips and tricks that you can use to improve your workflow, as well as the overall quality of your work. Let’s get started!

It is always fun and interesting to talk about what inspires various artists and designers. Recently, Psdtuts+ Editor, Grant Friedman had the opportunity to chat with long time Psdtuts+ Author, Martin Perhiniak on Google+ about some of the artwork that they were both inspired by. In this video, the two chat about some of their favorite pieces and how they might have been created. Let’s take a look!
The following artwork was discussed in this video:
In this tutorial, we will show you how to created lathed 3D objects by revolving paths and and layers around a fixed axis; a process similar to what you may have seen done using Illustrator’s 3D tools. In this process, we will explain how to create a wine glass, a bottle, and a table top. Let’s get started!
When a star like our own reaches the end of its life, it begins to run out of hydrogen fuel in its core. Like a car running out of gas, it will begin to sputter, swelling to a size that could encompass every planet in our solar system out to Mars. When this happens, the sun will swallow the Earth and will spell certain doom for all life on our planet. This time-lapse video by Ed Lopez shows how he created a stunning illustration depicting the inhabitance of a dying world that must travel into the stars to find a new world to call home. In the process he will show how to create a star, a planet, and even a few spaceships along the way. This time-lapse was created by piecing together video segments from the original tutorial.
