How to be creative with textures (Forest) by ChristinaKingma How to be creative with textures (Forest) by ChristinaKingma
Edit: THANK YOU BIG TIME for the DD! This is a massive motivation!! I would love to make another (texture) tutorial. The question is about what, but I will figure that out. Suggestions are welcome!

The title says it all! I always wanted to make a tutorial, but never found the time for it until now!

The example used in the tutorial [link]

This tutorial has been made for people that have a bit experience in Photoshop and are looking for inspiration and/or ways to work with textures.
I won’t be focussing on every tiny detail in the work progress of creating ‘Forest Owl’. This tutorial has not been made for you to exactly reproduce the piece, because what’s the fun in that? This tutorial has been made to give you inspiration to create your OWN work, in the ‘Forest Owl’ style. Including extra Photoshop tips and tricks.

I am very exciting in releasing this first one and am very interested in opinions/feedback/tips/results etc.
Please, do keep in mind that I am Dutch, not English. The grammar won't be perfect :)

I wouldn't have known you were Dutch instead of English if you hadn't said. Your sentences sound really natural to me (though I think I noticed a few typos).
I learned something new. I didn't know the Move Tool with ctrl would go to a layer (though, it seems it doesn't work within groups/folders :( ).

Hello love ^-^ This truly is beautiful art work ! I was wondering, since you said that any questions we may ask D: See the little leave, how they have those amazing cute dots on them ? I have asked so many, and they never answer : ( lol xox But may i ask how you do them so amazingly ? + Congratulations on the Daily Deviant love xxoxx

Thank you very much! One of the leaves that I've photographed had the dots already on them, so I was lucky with that :) The sun reflected them a bit as a natural effect.

Hmm. wowzers, its really amazing ^-^ May i then please ask of the small moth // butterfly ? How the glow works ? o:

In the same bar as the 'new layer' or 'add group' buttons, there is the 'add a layer style' option. With these options you can add some easy but nice effects, like 'outer glow'. Use outer glow on your item and play a bit with the settings (for example, put the glow on overlay instead of screen). When you have done that, voila! Nice glow effect all over the place.

Does this help?
