    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…

    Stunning Time-lapse of an Illustration of a Dying Star Sun preview
    When a star like our own reaches the end of its life, it begins to run out of hydrogen fuel in its core. Like a car running out of gas, it will begin to sputter, swelling to a size that could encompass every planet in our solar system out to Mars. When this happens, the sun will swallow the Earth and will spell certain doom for all life on our planet. This time-lapse video by Ed Lopez shows how he created a stunning illustration depicting the inhabitance of a dying world that must travel into the stars to find a new world to call home.
