1x1.trans Actions Confetti #1   sa cool 2.06/2.07 sets for Photoshop

I always liked Photoshop Actions. Even if don’t use them during my shots post production, because I prefer to work with my hands and not using other’s, I’ve always been fascinated by the great number and variety of Photoshop actions available for free online. Also, because they’re a great way to learn new post production process to achieve creative effects.

However, even if I don’t use them, I think they are really useful tool if you want to spice up your friends/holiday photos with funny and creative effects, but you don’t know anything about photography post-processing.

If you don’t know what a Photoshop action is, you may want to know that Photoshop gives you the chance to record some processing “steps” (such as image resize, curves, merging layers…) in a set called “Action”, that you can play every time you have to repeat those steps automatically. It is a time-saving option, and you can create your own actions easily.

Today, internet is full of Photoshop actions Sets, that you can get for free or for money. Many of them are really interesting so I’ve decided to make this post to test and show you some of the actions I’ve found.

Now, I’m going to show you two actions sets by Sa-Cool: set 2.06 and set 2.07.

15 Digital Art Tutorials for Painting Realistic Eyes

1x1.trans 15 Digital Art Tutorials for Painting Realistic EyesHello, I’m back again with a new article about Digital Painting Tutorials! Today you will learn the secrets for painting realistic eyes.

I’m so sorry for the lack of updates during the past months, life is getting really busy here! So today I’ve decided to brought you a new bunch of digital painting tutorials.

I think eyes are the most amazing and funny part to paint inside a portrait… but they are also tricky to do. Infact you have to respect proportions, volumes and symmetry. And you have to be careful because they build the expression and the mood of the portrait.

So it’s important to know how to work with eyes to get enough details and the right shape, so that they will look real.

These tutorials show the process step-by-step, from the shape to the final paint; just click over the images below to be redirect to the tutorial page.

Do you have some more tutorials to suggest? If you need more explanations or more tutorials just ask me in the comments. Have fun!
