There’s nothing more inspiring than surfing the internet and seeing what other artists are creating, and we encourage you to do so. Here are some of our favourite pictures that caught our attention recently, from some of the world’s most exciting artists and designers.

Felipe Hackriptos www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/Jose%20M.%20Felipe Image of the issue This art was made for a Photoshop challenge. I used a few filters, gradients and Camera Raw, and worked a lot on post-production. I love to play with the surreal in Photoshop, and am always learning new things. Steve Dellasala www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/SDS50 I painted some buildings in laying out roughly the overall perspective of the piece. I imported in some lights to overlay on the buildings to bring them to life. Then I used a few different filters to create the rain effect. Evelyn Aguiar www.photoshopcreative.co.uk/user/EvyLeeArt I used a lot of stock images and created the background with clouds. I got the dark tone by using Color Lookup on the scene, and used orange tones by changing blend modes.

readers’ challenge

We challenged you with these In Issue 144, we challenged you to get creative with these four images. You were allowed to use any or all of the pictures, and whatever other resources you chose. Here’s what you created. Challenge entries The best entries and overall challenge winner 1 Marcus Jones Say Cheese I used all four images. When I saw them I thought it would be neat if she was taking a photo of herself, so I gave her an extra hand to hold the camera and an extra hand to hold the rose. 2 Beth Foxcroft Xeno All four images were used. The geometric background was lightened over the other three images, which were edited using the filters, before finishing the whole thing off with a few brushes. 3 Marco Alma Retrography This was a collage inspired by vintage retro…
