    On Psdtuts+, we try to publish a healthy mix of written and video content. While written and video content are equally important and educational, they each have their strengths and weaknesses. While video is a great format for seeing exactly how an artist or instructor performs a task, it can be frustrating to stop, rewind, and fast forward parts that you may have missed or do not need to see. Conversely, while a written tutorial presents each step in an easily consumable way, some tasks may get skimmed over, or skipped entirely. That is why we have recently begun to publish more written content that also includes video. In this article, we will present a list of 15 jaw-dropping speed art videos, that include full written tutorials, that we recently published to help you learn a bit more about photo manipulation and digital illustration. Let's take a look!Read More…
