With rich beautiful works in web design, illustration and icon design, designer Vet Orso from Russian Federation shows his drawing process for FORNEX with the help of photoshop.
When he completes the draft, each parts needed on the paper, he has a general idea in his mind. Then he starts his work with photoshop. Drawing the sketch for FORNEX, coloring and dealing with details are main steps. Since it is not difficult, with careful observation and patience, the result is one brilliant piece of work comes into being. It does have some kind of similarity with the original poster!
Hello Everyone here we have a design/illustration tutorial. We are working on a label for a Micro brew beer.
First of all, I will go through all the process and how I came up with a rough sketch of what my character would look like.
Here is a sketch on paper with a permanent marker line art. Scan your work and keep the file on a 300dpi resolution. The bigger the better, that way scaling down works best! The sketch was done on red so we could easily separate the line art from the sketch. How? Super easy! At first label your layer by double clicking on it.
You can either do it by ctrl+click on PC or command+click on MAC and select your sketch layer, once you have the marching ants you go to the channels tab and click on your red channel.
You copy that channel layer ctrl+c on PC command+c on MAC. And you click again on you composite channel (RGB) to select them all. You go back to your layers panel and paste your red channel as a layer ctrl+v on PC or command+v on MAC. Name your new layer LINE ART.
Let’s go to the levels adjustment ctrl+L on PC or command+l o MAC and tweak your sliders so you get a clean black and white image. Try and get all the grays out. Easy! Now to get rid of the white and keep a clean lien art! OK so we can get rid of that first sketch of ours or keep it if you like to have the history. I personally like to have all my layers at the end and see how much the image changed from beginning to end. (I know many of your might be dying about the left eye of the ninja but I’m getting there!) Ok, now we get rid of the white background. Hide all your layers but your line art by doing alt+click on PC or optn+click on MAC over the little eye icon on your layer. We open the blending options of our LINE ART layer by double clicking on the space next to the name or by simply going to your “FX” button.
After that, selecting blending options. There you’ll have 3 blocks and the third one is the one we want: “Blend If: Gray” Here you want to slide the white triangle to the left until the white is totally gone! Click OK when done.
Great! Now we need to lock those changes so we need to press ctrl+click on PC or command+click on MAC on the create new layer icon so that the new layer appears under our line art layer. Then select both and press ctrl+e on PC or command+e on MAC to merge both layers onto one and keep it in transparency. Awesome! Now we can finally duplicate that eye and get ready to color it.
Once OK, we can go to the painting process. Create a new layer under the line art and layout all your flat colors.
it is time to work on your lights and shadows. Use brighter tones of the same layout colors for the highlights and darker for your shadows. Once you finish, you should have something like this:
Now we can take this great drawing to the next level. We are going to color the line art. What? my precious clean clack lines? yes! to do this you want to lock the transparency on the line art by clicking on this icon:
Now it is coloring time. Choose the darkest color of the shadow per section of your character. Let’s say you are working on the hoodie of the ninja. Select your darkest value with the eyedropper tool and go a little darker than that. Why? just so that the line art doesn’t blend with the shadows. Once you have that color start brushing in! Your final illustration would look a little like this:
Since you have done with the character. It is time to work on the label. Setup your size and resolution on a new document. Remember 300+dpi is best if you want to print. Firstly, we set the background color in green. Press alt+backspace on PC or option+backspace on MAC to fill the layer with your choice of color.
With a soft brush ,the dodge and the burn tool you need to work out some shadows and lights. Then choose greens with the same dodge and burn but with a textured brush as below.
Now we go to work on the starburst effect. Create a new layer; and then,draw line and dark gray rectangles like this:
Go to the main menu and select “Filters” then “Distort” and lastly “Polar Coordinates” and use RECTANGULAR TO POLAR. BAM! Starburst. Now lower the opacity to about 50% and change the blend mode to “Overlay”.
It’s time for the Ovals. Firstly, we create our oval in a dark green. And then apply the following layer styles and apply the following settings as below:
We duplicate the layer by pressing ctrl+j on PC or command+j on MAC. Then change the color to a darker green and adjust the stroke settings to:
And then, add your illustration layer
Apply the following outer glow layer style to make it POP:
And then, we can add logo, flavor and text into the recipe!
Use the same idea to create the template as this:

We are talking about Smaug, the arrogant, greedy, malicious, cruel, dangerously sharp minded, massive and powerful dragon from the Hobbit.This digital art was designed by Brazilian digital artist and graphic designer André Luiz de Castro, who used ZBrush and Photoshop and took around 35 hours to finish.
Smaug is a fictional dragon and the last great Fire-drakes of Middle-earth in J. R. R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel The Hobbit. Smaug rose to prominence by laying waste to the town of Dale and capturing the Dwarf-kingdom of the Lonely Mountain (Erebor) with all of its treasure. These events occurred some 150 years before the events of The Hobbit, and Smaug was already centuries old at the time. In the book, the dragon is sometimes called Smaug the Golden or Smaug the Magnificent.
“Skull” is Colombian digital artist Santiago Betancur Salazar’s last project. Salazar has his own website, which exhibits his fabulous works with different styles. The reason why he presents his “Skull” here is he loves skull, so he shares his works.
Photos belows generally show Salazar’s working process with “Skull” by Photoshop. Skull itself is terrific enough, and Salazar created this “Skull” with creepy grey metal effects. The exquisite vein and muscle details prove Salazar’s skills and attitude. No matter seeing from the front or from the profile, Salazar’s Skull is naturally mixed together with its background, a grey metal skull emerging from its gray tenacious and unbreakable background.
