So, I won first place in Challenge 121 back in November and never actually got around to creating a tutorial for it since I ended up being busy with rl. So thanks to pensnest for letting me post this late :)

We're going from to

This tutorial was made with Photoshop CS5 and uses Curves, Hue/Saturation, Gradient Map, Brightness/Contrast and Flood Fill layers.

A quick reminder that Challenge #123 is all about PENGUINS, and who doesn't love penguins? You have at least another week in which to enter.

Also, don't forget that if there are problems on LJ, you can also use http://severalplums.dreamwidth.org/

This will be the last challenge of this year, as my own timetable is filling up crazily as Christmas nears, and that's probably true for many of you, too.

It's another 'find your own pics' challenge, this time on a theme of...

Penguins!Collapse )
I'm... not actually quite sure when I will post voting. Probably on Sunday 11th December, so you have loads of time to hunt down some penguin pics and have fun with them.

Meanwhile you still have until tomorrow morning to enter Challenge 122.

In case of LJ going fluffy, this challenge can also be found on Dreamwidth at http://severalplums.dreamwidth.org/64449.html

Texture tutorial Challenge #120 [Oct. 29th, 2011|03:51 am]

I was invited to do a tutorial for either or both of the texture sets I made for Challenge 120 and since I couldn't decide which texture set to make a tutorial for so I made one for both. In order not to spam this community, I'm only posting the tutorial for the first texture I made to this community. The other one can be found here at love_sacrificed.

Going from this image to this image for this set

This was made with Photoshop CS 5 using various filters and a hue/saturation layer. Most of these should be available in earlier versions of Photoshop.
