Dash of Inspiration – April 25, 2011

A Dash of Inspiration…A Cup of Creativity by Doreen

Photomanipulation in Photoshop

I love fantasy and sci-fi and I’m always fascinated by the creation process of this type of art.  For those of us who are photographers, we can’t photograph what doesn’t exist which is probably what draws me this style of creation.  In today’s digital world full of powerful tools, photographers can create ‘something out of this world’ using our own photographs; just like the painter puts imagination to canvas.  This week I wanted to challenge all of the photographers out there to create something surreal and fantastic using bits and pieces of your photographs.  Today’s Photoshop Tutorial gives you some initial technique and hopefully some inspiration to dip your toes into a whole new world of exploration.

Along with the How to create a fantasy Photomanipulation in Photoshop tutorial brought to us by Webgraphics, I’m also including two Brushes links to help you with your new creations into the world beyond!  The first is a set of 30 Hi-Res Fairy Wing Brushes, the other a set of 22 Light Swirl Brushes.  These come to us from Obsidian Dawn and should work for Photoshop 7 & up, Elements 2 & up and Gimp, so all of you should be able to play in this sandbox!
