Some of you asked me for tutorials… In fact, I hate tutorials… In my opinion tutorials kill creativity and self education, of course it’s only my humble opinion. I don’t want to tell you which transparency mode I’ve used or which filter or adjustment layer you should to use but I want to show you how my process of creation looks.
At first I want to share with you my personal rules and philosophy of digital graphics:
- no stocks
- no photoshop brushes (except default ones)
- no plugins
- no filters
- no 3D graphics
- as many traditional media as possible
- dirt of paint on my hands is great!
Photos below show first steps of creation process of project № 60563 – the last one of them shows finished (probably ;) ) background for this picture. Final picture has 7000 pix width.
PS. check this note if you’ll feel suprised of four LCDs on my desk ;)
