Photoshop Tree Tutorial

Joel Reinke - Monday, November 07, 2011

This ones a keeper!

My more simple "Water Bubble" tutorial gets a lot of traffic (and it kind of makes sense), but I feel that this is the first art-grade video tutorial I've created.  The art of making a tree in Photoshop is something I feel there has been a void on YouTube.  This is a quality tutorial that draws from both my years of Photoshop experience and my real painting experience.

I have squeezed a lot into the 5 minute tutorial.  It is also just step 1 of 3 on how to complete the tree.  Part 2 will be shading and texturing.  Part 3 will be adding leaves.

Photoshop Landscape Painting Expanded

Joel Reinke - Friday, September 09, 2011

Just expanded upon: Photoshop Landscape Painting article with tons of new helpful tutorials on how to paint the Sea, Lakes, Oceans, and other bodies of water.  A little more on the art of Mountain Painting in Photoshop.  This is becoming a big resource on the topic and it keeps expanding for you.  Free, useful info.

Includes step by step instructions (unlike many tutorials).  I forsee a Video Tutorial connected to this in the future, but no time right now.  Click here to go to the Article.
