Ukrainian artist Denis Gonchar shows the process of dealing with lion image with Adobe Illustrator. The tutorial shows how does a colorful dimensional lion head appear on the warm sand yellow background. The way is to add color onto the original lion head and deal with details time and time again.
A lion-head profile with light background is a must. The next step is to darken the lion’s mane, presenting dimensions, then proceed to add decorative colors to present the artist style of the lion and finally be sure to the deal with the bright color and dark color around the lion head carefully to show light and shadows reflected by the lion head, which is also for dimensional purpose.

“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.
