Step-by-step Pieces by Christophe Heut

Nowadays some may say Photoshop i really overrated, since everyone knows a bit about it and there's a lot of tutorials on the web explaining how to use this tool. Well, I would say there's a ton of guys using it nowadays, however only a few really can make perfect retouchings and montages as Christophe Heut. This guy is really out of this world, you probably have already seen a lot of his manipulation thru the web, since he worked with many big clients and famous campaigns. In his Website I found this making ofs of some pieces that he did and after seeing this I kind find I really can do more with less on photoshop. Don't forget to visit Christophe website, he got some pretty wicked works. Parking Art Playstation (Morpheus Character) Nissan Surfrider Foundation DDB Monogram
