The set is a perfect example of using off-the-wall elements to create something new and unique.

I took a long drink to give me time to answer and, hopefully, time for him to die of a sudden heart attack. “No thanks,” I replied.
Hey looked shocked and continued trying to sell me on the …
It’s funny to see how simple objects can inspire creative type treatments. In the past I’ve played with plates, paper and wood. Today I will show you how to realize an awesome text effect using ice cream! The process is simple enough for any level Photoshop lover. We will be dealing with illustration techniques, and will explore the power of layer styles applied to custom brushes. So… give it a try!

In this tutorial I will teach you how to create a surreal image with a light color palette. Using some basic overpainting techniques combined with textured bushes, you’ll be able to make soft skin shapes and retouch stock photos of people to get an original looking illustration without the use of filters. This tutorial is inspired by an Illustration I did for the slashTHREE art community. Below you will learn some of the techniques I used in creating that image.
