My Lazy Xmas Present Tutorial by Zatransis My Lazy Xmas Present Tutorial by Zatransis
Hey gang!

I had planned on doing something like this and then :iconanjinanhut: screwed it up by beating me to the punch! Hahaha...

Anyhow, he put up a sweet insight into his work by giving everyone a psd. So, I am doing the same thing with my Colossus painting. Even though it's free for me I hope you guys get a lot of value from this. I had a banner year (for me) and it's all because of you guys.

Thanks for 2009... Here's to 2010!

Hit Download on the left to get the PSD. It was done in Photoshop CS4 and is best viewed when opened with the same program (however, older versions will open it with adjusted folder structure). Physical size has been reduced due to file size.

Thanks!

M!

I don't understand, how is this a tutorial? it doesn't show how to do anything it's just a full resolution file.

There's really way too many pictures on this site under 'tutorial' that are anything but.

Because politely asking for some advice/tips has gotten me so much farther.

Oh wait, it hasn't.

thanks for the non confrontal, indifferent response, didn't expect much better.

hey man, this is fantastic... really great work and enormously appreciated. I am still confused on the rim light operation and for the special effects how you get a solid black figure over your picture.. and why?

Heya!

Glad you dig. As for the rim light, I don't totally know what you are asking. Could you clarify?

For the solid, this is how and why. First, holding ctrl, click all the layers you want to be a part of the solid. Then hold alt and merge those layers. They will all merge into a new layer together. Then I just hit ctrl+u for the hue/saturation window and shift it all to black. I do this because I like having a layer I can ctrl+click on the thumbnail of to do quick selects of the whole figure. I make it black so it takes up less file size.
