This interview is quite different to the one we usually do. Beside working for clients Wojciech Pijecki creats kick ass photoshop tutorials, to teach you his skills. You probably have seen some on the most famous tutorial site PsdTuts.com. With a click on the picture you may get directly to the tutorial of your chosen design.
Last weekend I spent sometime watching TV, more specifically Lost, playing video-games, and playing around in Photoshop as well. I was working on some new images for fun, and for new tutorials of course. Speaking of tutorials, PSDTUTS has published my new tutorial, Create Cool Watercolor Effects in Photoshop, so check it out. Also I’d like to share with you the wallpaper version of the Watercolor tutorial Below you have the different sizes of it.
December is here, another year is ending and nothing better than creating a Christmas desktop wallpaper using Photoshop to celebrate that right? Well, maybe not. Anyways I created this image using paths, the brush engine and layer styles in Photoshop. Besides that, I used some amazing Christmas Icons I found online at http://www.iconarchive.com/category/christmas-icons.html
My latest Photoshop tutorial is available at psdtuts.com and it’s about using the Vanish Point Filter to mockup a business card. There are many instances when you will want to simulate or mock up how a design would look printed out and photographed.
Most of you know that I have written some tutorials on how to create smoke using Photoshop. Last weekend I took sometime and tried to come up with a nice and easy way to create fire in Photoshop. There are lots of good tutorials on the internet about creating fire but the majority are creating fire for text effects. What I was looking was to reproduce an effect I saw sometime ago in a Nike Ad. It was that fire that is created when a spaceship or comet enters the earth's atmosphere.
My very first tutorial for the PSDTUTS.com has been published. It is, again, about how to create a digital smoke in Photoshop. However this time I’m using a bit of Illustrator. Actually some people said it does not look like a smoke at all, but what I was trying to produce was an effect like those smoke photos taken using macro, pretty abstract design, the same the image I use for the header here in my blog.
