Painting in Photoshop
As you probably noticed from my previous posts, I am desperate canine lover and have around 300 artworks, depicting dogs of many breeds, sizes and colors. Among many natural painting techiques: pencelling, inking, watercolor, gouache, acrylic, oil I am proficient… Photoshop is one of my favorite. Because(this sentence for snobs, those who think computer painting is unnatural, machine thing), Photoshop is a toolbox, just a toolbox in a hand of an artist. You evenly can create a masterpiece or piece of …
Anyway, I will introduce you to my way of painting in Photoshop and some helpers, I learnt from others, like Bobby Chiu and my own inventions. I am in a process of writing this tutorial, so please come back to read it. See you later…

3D Chocolate. 30 min project
Today is a day of confession. I am an chocolate addict. I eat 2 bars a day on a regular basis. Probably can do more.Most definitely. Just never ‘ve been brave enough buy more… Once I was in Paris and stuck in amazement at a door of a little belgium choco store(somewhere in Saint-Germain, somewhere at a corner of Rue Cuvier & Rue Jussieu. It was just like a golden bonbon dream… But well my digital chocolate lesson not actually about chocolate itself, but rather I invented how to create metallic foil effect in Photoshop. At least, I have never saw this effect made by somebody else… So, here you are… eat my choco right here!

3D Cactus. 1 hour project. In memory of my beloved Red Caca.
There was King Cacatos I and Queen Cacacia. Once Queen Cacacia gave a birth to little cactusie. Happy parents gave newborn princess name Red Caca(read: kaka, has nothing in common with a product of digestion though), because she was blushing anyone looked at her. She was so tender and gentle and had absolutely no stings at all. They lived in a small "Claypot" castle, small, but cosy.
Once, officer of Royal Air Force, lieutenant of Fly Squadron Di Mosca flying high in the sky, noticed young princess. And, certainly fell in love with her, right from a first glance. And she also deeply loved brave officer. They started to date. And with each date their love grew high.
Okay, let’s make story short… Once our lover Fly was send for a mission and never got back. Nobody knew what happened to daredevil. Princess Caca shedded her tears days and night, days and nights, untill she died. She knew wet kills cactuses… but even though, she would never stop.
See the little hole on the left. That’s was my Red Caca place… Well… this project is ready for studying. Click here to see it.

3D Tennis. 1 hour project
First tennis rule I learnt was: hold racquet by its handle just like you’d hold a little bird. Not too tight, not to loose. Do not choke it and don’t let it go. Same thing about Wacom Pen…
Another most important lesson I got, was: if you got first decision, follow it immediately. For example: you decided strike hard, but in a fraction of second another "smart" idea coming to your head. What about deep top-spin? Balance between two completely different decisions will cause you send your winning ball right to the net. Thanks God, we have Photoshop and always can "undo" wrong decision.

3D Octopus. 1 hour project
When I was little boy, I liked spent my time in front of a small TV screen, breathlessly watching Jacques-Yves Cousteau ocean travels on his famous Calypso ships.Maybe old “souvenirs” caused me to depict magical dweller of ocean deep – Mr. Octopus… Despite this image looks pretty complexed – it is very simple in real!

|Coming soon: Two editions of Photoshop CS3|
|Photoshop CS3||Photoshop CS3 Extended|
Your first introduction to Photoshop CS3(available for public download since December 15th, 2006) will probably surprise you with new UI. They now give you an option to switch between old(two columns) Toolbox and new one row Toolbox. Also improved Pallets. Due to saving work space they are nifty, smaller. User can expand or reduce the size of the palette drawer by dragging its vertical border. Vanishing Point Filter turned Photoshop CS3 to a 3d simulation application! Updated Vanishing Point Filter let user implement one image into multiple plains. Note: cylinder caps and its drop shadow were also made with Vanishing Point filter.
