Create Quick Thumbnail Sketches in Photoshop

by

Photoshop is an excellent tool for manipulating photographs but it can also be used as a means to create stunning digital art. This tutorial is part of a 25-part video tutorial series demonstrating everything you will need to know to start producing digital art in Photoshop. Digital Art for Beginners, by Adobe Certified Expert and Instructor, Martin Perhiniak will begin by teaching you how to draw in Photoshop. At the conclusion of this series you will know all you need to produce your own concept art and matte paintings in Photoshop.

Today's tutorial Part 10: Create Quick Thumbnail Sketches in Photoshop will demonstrate a quick and effective sketching technique, which is best for creating concept objects like vehicles, weapons, and robots. In this episode we will create some sketches for a spaceship design that we will use as a guide for a perspective drawing that we will be created in a later episode. Let's get started!

    In this tutorial, you'll learn how to do a large 3D anamorphic drawing. The theme and message I want to express is "choose peace, not violence", so I've chosen a revolver as the main subject of the art work. What we want is to have some sketches large enough to pose with them and become part of the whole composition. By the end of this tutorial, you'll understand my work flow from the first studies through to the final work. I'm also going to teach you all kinds of graphic tricks to help you work faster and draw difficult shapes such as guns and hands. Read More…

    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.
