Great tutorial :D

Found helpful for using photoshop in general (which I also needed help on :P) then just making simple textures though :D

Hey when i try to paint pixel for pixel in photoshop the colour spreads from one to another can how can i fix this?

thanks bro that really helped!
Sup bro! What version of Photoshop do you use? I'm with CS5 extended, but I assume you're with CS6? But, to the main point, loved the blog, and I was wondering, do you know anything other with Photoshop. because I do 3D modelling as a hobby, and It's useful to be able to use different tools to make them look better. Any help? Thanks bro, in advance. Again, great tutorial! Diamonded and favourited! And a cheeky little subby ;)
Hey, to be honest I own the CS6 but I still prefer using the old Photoshop CS3 ... I dunno why, I'm just used to it :) Otherways yes, I also work with 3D's Max, Corel Draw and other graphic & design software ;) I have over 6 years of experience with all of these ;) What help do you need?
Just general stuff, like I might render a model in a a background, but I want a torch I made, to go with the theme, or in the model's hand, glow brighter. Little tweaks like that, or add better colours to the hair, or make some landscape (The one on my profile just posted, it's terrible, don't look at it ;) ) look realistic, not a render!
Well that is really hard to describe over a text message... It takes alot of time to set up a good renderer, unless you are using plugins like V-ray or such... I can just quickly aim to the fire effect in the 3D's Max... if you go to the environment tab/effects there you can select the fire, but u have to create a gizmo as a helper, otherwise it doesnt work... We can talk later over a PM or Skype, but currently here is 10pm and I'm gonna go to sleep :D so see you later. If you want to work on it right away, search some webs with tutorials, that's always the best way to learn stuff.
Would it be any help at all if I made a render, then sent it over for you to make a video? That's the only way I think it would work, and be easier for me to understand, as I'm an idiot :I

Hello Sabretooth ! I have a question. For your videos on Youtube, what kind of program do you use for filming it?
Sincerely, Reni :)
Hey, it's written on my profile, but I'm using Camtasia Studio... the best thing u can get for that I believe. ;)

Again, thank you :]
No problem ;) Good luck with the videos ;)

100th diamond! :P
For anyone interested in a few shortcuts... Hold Space and drag to move your picture quickly, B for Brush, Alt+Click for Eyedropper, Alt+Scroll/Z-Drag for Zoom, E for Eraser, M for Marquee, Alt+Control+Click for copy. There's a lot more that I know, but these are the ones I use most often.
Good point! I forgot to write these :)
Anyone else see the picture of Roxas? Kingdom hearts <3

And you can also make texture packs with photoshop.
Not only texturepacks! You can do simply anything you want! :)

>:C now I need photoshop. GIMME. </3
You can download it for free as a student at adobe.com or I think someone posted here link where u can download cracked version... I wouldn't reccomend that though.
You can't download it for free from Adobe, but it is discounted quite a bit from the original price if your a student.
Well I got it for free when I was on high school, but it was only for 30 days, than I upgraded by paying a small fee.

Great guide. Very well presented.
Thank you! :)
it's easyer to use gimp but this is awesome too
Trust me, when u get to know PS u'll like it more ;) Thanks!
i gave it a diamond. this is maybe easier to you cuz you are better than me in PS. How about you make me a skin. Assassin's creed or prototype i tried but they aren't good
Thanks for the dia! Hey don't be like that, I had my first day in photoshop as well, and you know what happened? I couldn't find out how to draw.. after hours searching everywhere I finally made a simple image, that looked worse than if I used paint. You must not give up, nothing is taught in seconds.. ;) About the skin, I'm not making any assasin creeds, there is tons of them already.

Ok you could've saved everyone's time and only put in the ONE thing that actually was helpful: burn/dodge to shade. Other than that this guide tells me everything I already know, and at that it skips crucial parts, like actually HOW to draw it. All it says is draw.
Well, there are people who never seen Photoshop before you know? That's why I made this. ;)

welcome :) .. and yea i know.. some people think that photoshop isn't even a program.. they think "photoshop" can be paint and others like that.
Haha, indeed my friend. Well here they will hopefully find out that it's much better than paint.. :)
