readers’ challenge

We challenged you... In Issue 165, we challenged you to get creative with the set theme of Music. You were allowed to create whatever you wanted, so long as it incorporated the theme somehow. Alison Koller Tribute Gibson This was an isometric composition that replicated each part of the guitar in a landscape. The speedboats along the neck created lines similar to guitar strings, and the island in the middle is in the same position as the guitar’s scratch plate. This issue’s challenge... Think you can do better? Prove it! Next issue, the theme is Darkness. We don’t mind how you incorporate it into your image, just be as creative as you possibly can!

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. Slava Semeniuta www.instagram.com/thisset/ I was very inspired by the snow slopes and I took about 15 pictures on a digital camera that I borrowed from a friend. I really love bright colours so using a graphics tablet and a combination of overlay filters in Photoshop, I achieved a steep colour solution.

I think when you understand your art, you don’t need many tools to make…

Claudio Tosi I divided this in two phases: hand sketch and digital painting, and adding patterns and textures. The lines, sketches and strokes make the work look ‘confused’ but it was a rigorous graphic process. Corine Spring After isolating the saxophone, I integrated it on a background and added various brushes to achieve this effect. On a new layer I painted some shade. And finally I used Hue/Saturation to desaturate the saxophone. Bob Parsi I used stock photos with the tiger as the main theme. I blended all the images by masking and using blend modes. Then I used adjustment layers, filters and gradients to make the image pop. Jorge Miranda I created this image with a lot of stock photos. Sometimes I take them from online sites, other times I feel inspired to create my own…

create art with your smartphone

Just over ten years ago, Apple introduced the iPhone to the world, and it’s fair to say technology hasn’t been the same since. Now, we all have a mini-computer in our pockets, with apps for taking photos, editing photos and sharing photos with the rest of the world. But how has this impacted the way we use Photoshop? Of course, Adobe introduced its own apps, including Photoshop Express and Capture to help Photoshop users create on the go. These can really help enhance your creative process, and offer solutions for when you’re not at a computer, but the impression of the smartphone on Photoshop is deeper than that. Nowadays, if you see the perfect subject for a composition – take the tiger on the left – you most likely have a camera…
