Photoshop Tutorial: Fotolia Artist’s Secrets

It’s that time again – Ten by Fotolia’s July showcase is Russian artist, Alexey Samsonov, who goes by “Somistar.” If you can’t get enough Photoshop tutorials, and let’s face it, who can, this series was made for you.

Somistar’s island is a complex image of fantasy and caution. The cool water and beautiful architecture is a great depiction of what one might imagine as a magical getaway, but in looking more closely, the island appears to lack stability.

Or, maybe I’m just reading too much into it. That is what I love about this year’s Fotolia Ten Artists!

Below is Somistar’s Photoshop download image, available only until 10am ET tomorrow (July 11, 2013).

The best part of this series is the free Photoshop tutorials (good for Adobe Photoshop CS5 and CS6 editions) that each artist provides, so make sure you take advantage of it.
