Today I will be posting a digital piece from a Photoshop tutorial I did a while ago in order to improve my skills at using adjustment layers and painting techniques (big thanks to Matthew M. Laskoswki and his great tutorials). Adjustment layers and masks allow you to modify your painting and play with the lights without altering the pixels. It saves a huge amount of time, brings beautiful results and lots of flexibility in your digital work on Photoshop. I copied his very good illustration of the girl arriving at her metro stop in order to practice and play with various renderings to see if I could get the same results as he did in his original piece. That was about 5-6 hours of work (to draw, paint, make mistakes and learn) and here is what it looks like! I will definitely apply this in my original digital illustrations in the future and will post them here. You can access the tutorial here and see the original piece. Thanks again to Matthew for sharing all his great tutorials. Check out his work on his website: www.orianart.com. He is very talented! Cheers!
