readers’ challenge

We challenged you... In Issue 168, we challenged you to get creative with the set theme of Adventure. You were allowed to create whatever you wanted, so long as it incorporated the theme somehow. Marc Dhaeyer Jumping from God’s Window This is an image that uses layers, masks and a lot of blending. Adjustments were key in tying everything together to make it feel surreal, yet rooted in nature.

Sylvia van der Velden Image of the issue This work was made with texture layers and layer masks. I changed the blend modes and added some curves and lighting effects. For the model I used only dark and midtone colours and made some layers for these. Bob Parsi I focused on the lion’s face and masked out the rest. Then I used gradients and brushes to colourise the face and outer areas. At the final stage I used various adjustment layers to make the colours more vibrant. Lakshmikanta Patra This is a self-portrait that I created in Photoshop. I used many solid colour layers, some adjustment layers and replicated my body parts with the Pen tool. It was kept simple for a vector style. Caroline Julia Moore I created this illustrated sci-fi image using a photograph that I…

learn to draw with the brush tool

So you have Photoshop, you’ve downloaded some brushes, and you’ve checked out some tutorials on how to create digital artwork. But what if you’re not very good at drawing? Well, we’re here to help! Drawing is one of the simplest hobbies you can practise: all you need is a pencil and some paper. But some of us don’t have the natural artistic talent of being able to put down on a page what we visualise in our minds. Getting better at drawing is first and foremost a matter of practise – as with most skills – but to help you start off on the right foot, we asked our favourite digital artists for their top drawing tips. Over the next few pages, we’re going to be looking at some simple ways you…
