Create a Beautiful Night Scene with Mystic Silhouettes

View my newest Photoshop tutorial created for http://www.PxlEyes.com.

From this tutorial you will learn how to create a lovely starry night scene with shiny moon, mystic silhouettes of buildings and bats in the sky. You don’t need some special drawing skills as all shapes are created without painting. The whole image is a result of using Pen Tool, Rectangle and Rounded Rectangle Tool as well as Polygon Tool for the stars and Elliptical Marquee Tool for the moon. Lots of Layer Styles are used to give the objects volume, texture and glow.

Illustrator Tutorial: Create a Colorful Water World with Fish and Sea Weed

This tutorial shows detailed step-by step guide to create three different kinds of colorful fish, sea weed, vector bubble, and nice background full with glowing rays.

To make all the elements of Water World image you’ll need Adobe Illustrator. After being designed in that Vector Program, all sea creatures, bubbles and rays will be arranged and processed in Adobe Photoshop.

Any CS version of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator is applicable to accomplish this tutorial. The Photoshop part includes mainly Layer Styles, Blend Mode and Gradients. As for the Illustrator, we’ll be using Mesh Tool, Clipping Mask, default Patterns, Blending Object, Transformations and lots of Gradients and effects.

Hope that you won’t be repelled by these a bit more than hundred steps. Actually this is 5 in 1 tutorial as it could be divided into five parts- each of them a separate tut, i.e. one tutorial for glowing rays drawing, three tutorials dedicated to fish drawing and one tutorial on making bubble and sea weed.

Click on the following image to open the tut, created for http://www.PxlEyes.com 🙂
