In this tutorial, it will show you how to take command of layer blending modes and masks, and employ simple but highly effective tricks to generate light sources, shadows and add depth to your work. This style is a bit special, as lots of art elements have been added.
In this tutorial, it will show you how to create some flawless patterns, which we will use to create some amazing backgrounds that you can use for your desktop, websites, posters…whatever you want. The great thing about patterns is that once you get comfortable with them, they can be an important part of your Photoshop arsenal.

In this tutorial we’ll be creating a smokey night effect on text to give it an eerie supernatural sort of feel. Finally to give it a more eerie feel I added a layer above all the others and with a large brush painted some green on top, then set the layer blending mode to to make it so that the image is a blue-green colouring.
