Photoshop Evangelist contest video

This was the video tutorial that I created for the Next Photoshop Evangelist contest. I made to the finals and became the 4th at the end. I’m really happy that my work was chosen by the judges and my friends voted for me. From the video you can learn how to use the new feature of Adobe Photoshop CS5, the Mixer Brush tool to easily turn photographs into digital paintings, to enhance details of your artwork, to soften skin and to quickly create special effects.

Create realistic blood

In this tutorial you can learn to create realistic blood. Beware, it will be a little bit gory! Don’t show it your kids and your grandma! I’m using a photograph and I draw the dripping blood on the picture trying to capture the volume and realistic look. I don’t use any special brushes or plug-ins (as usual) so you only need to find a photo to be able to follow this tutorial. Please try not to start with your girlfriends photograph or the family portrait 🙂 Details
