Once again Abduzeedo is bringing you another great case study so you can get different views of how different artists create their pieces. This time is an amazing piece by the master David Waters aka ishbu. Ecosystems is somewhere between 3d and photo manipulation, done with a lot of Photoshop and imagination. Enjoy!
As a fan of sci-fi and the space subject it is always awesome to see other designers sharing the same love. For this post I would like to feature the work created by Flavio Montiel using Cinema 4D and Photoshop. The project is titled Astro Metal Front and as you can see it's beautiful.

A few weeks ago I posted artwork I created for a poster inspired by the Man of Steel movie. I used Pixelmator for that project and got quite a few comments and requests about how to achieve the same effect in Photoshop. As Photoshop doesn't have the awesome Vintage filters that Pixelmator now has, I tried emulating the effect using brushes which I will share with you today.
So in this tutorial I will show you how to create a nice colorful background using Photoshop. The whole process is pretty simple and straightforward.
We have posted about Erik Johansson quite a few times, he was even interviewed and featured on the Abduzeedo book. If you don't know him, he's a photographer and retouch artist from Sweden. He uses photography as a way of collecting material to realize the ideas in his mind.
