i need to learn how to use photoshop

4

More work, and more mistakes, i’m becoming crazy! 😅 wip 3!

Edit1 : Clean (missing the eyelashes and the crown)

Edit2 : Colors+crown+eyelashes, next round (and it will be the last one), shadows+lights !

Edit3 : Final turn around, I know there is still a lot of mistakes, but i think it was a pretty good HARD exercise ! And it was the occasion to learn a little bit about how to use After Effect ! I’ll do an other one, but this time with a character that already exist in the animation world. Now I need to move on, and learn, work on animation exercise. Even if it was long, it was fun ! :)

Ps : Thanks for being +22K :D <3

Hi! I'm sorry to bother you but I was wondering if you've ever done an icon tutorial? Your icons are really the most beautiful I've seen, and I'd love to know your secrets 😊. But if you aren't interested in posting them I totally understand. I hope you're having a great day!!

EXTENDED ICON TUTORIAL

Hey sorry this took so long to get around to but I finally felt inspired to make this. A couple things first. I want to give a special shout out to argetnallison cuz I learned how to make icons from her tutorials here. I picked up a few tips and tricks that aren’t included in other tutorials so we’re gonna call this an extended icon tutorial. I’ve also been told I explain things well but if there’s anything from this that needs clearing up later just send me a message and i will be happy to help guide you through it. This Is my first time making a tutorial so bare with me if I ramble. 

we will be going from this:

to this

do u think you could ever make a walkthrough on how u do portraits? if not that's totally fine too it's just that i'm absolutely fascinated and stunned by your style

This gave me something to do this morning, thanks. This isn’t super in depth cause I don’t even really know how to explain without just saying “learn how to paint in photoshop” but this is just the method that works best for me idk. :) I pretty much exclusively use a hard round brush turning transfer on and off when i need different opacity levels.

(wait for them- the images are gifs- RIP mobile users)

Hey, I have zero experience in drawing or any kind of manual art like that. But I've decided I want to try and learn even just the basics, but the resources online are sketchy and I have no knowledge to be able to decipher what's good and what's not. I really love your art, I know you probably get this a lot but where do you think I should start?

ALRIGHT alright alright I’m going to make this some sort of ”beginner artist” masterpost and include as many resources as I possibly can. I am going to assume you want to focus on the ”drawing” aspects of art since it can take many forms. Here are some pointers and resources I consider vital when learning how to draw, things I’ve learned from multiple art oriented courses. This is going to be a very quick and general thing and I’ll make some serious and properly drawn tutorials in the future (the drawings in this one are going to be embarrassing, try to only take the general idea from them) but to start off:

  • Before you jump into drawing in any particular style, learn your realism.

This is probably mistake #1 in many young art enthusiasts: they go straight into wanting to draw either anime, or a particular cartoon’s style because a stylized form of art is much more appealing to them than realistic things. Which is valid, but I’ll have you know in order to get any of those styles right, you have to learn the basics AND ONLY THEN proceed to use that knowledge to ”deform” said realism into any style you want. Be it learning from life drawing and observing, pictures online of real people or animals. When you look at a big household name in the artist world’s work, as flashy as their stuff might be, a trained eye is able to tell immediately if the person has proper anatomical knowledge or not, no matter how much they try to mask it with ”this is just my style.” Let me show you an example: 

(excuse the 5 minute sketches pls, note these are actually highly inaccurate (the knees should be placed lower on the second drawing and calves shouldn’t be as big as the thighs) but I wanted to demonstrate ”realistic proportions” in contrast to more of a stylized drawing in a really quick way, a google search for “human anatomy” will bring up much more accurate visual representations of all this so I highly recommend doing that)

But basically in order to play around with anatomy you first need to learn realistic proportions (you don’t need to absolutely master them or anything, but you need to know things like the distance between the forehead, eyes + nose and chin correlate, places where fat stores in comparison to where muscle stores, the size of the forearm until in reaches the wrist/arm are practically the same, arms + hands reach below the hipbone and halfway to the the upper thigh) and only then proceed to bend those rules to create your own stylized version of things, which means you get to play around with a lot of shapes like so: 

  • USE GUIDELINES

For the love of all that is holy make use of guidelines, whether with a light colored blue or red pencil if you’re drawing by hand or a sketch layer in Photoshop/SAI etc. They will help out so much when it comes to knowing where you should place each feature. Many people attempt to draw directly without them and while after a lot of practice it might work, to start off you really need to understand basic figure building.

(I’m literally drawing all these one drawing a minute excuse the shittiness I’m just trying to get the point across ahah gOD THESE ARE PISSPOOR)

  • Carry a little sketchbook with you if you can and draw strangers while riding the train, bus, etc. Just draw whatever you see.

It’s not only entertaining when you might be bored out of your mind but extremely productive to draw people, animals, scenery, anything you can see that you might want to sketch out for practice, you can. No better way to learn than real life. 

  • Take time to draw. And draw. And draw.

You will not learn or improve overnight, bettering yourself when it comes to art is an endless and ongoing lifelong process. But it won’t be due to osmosis, you gotta sit your ass down and draw as frequently as you can afford to (although excesses can be bad for you, learn to also take breaks and find comfortable positions because drawing CAN REALLY MESS UP YOUR BACK like badly and you don’t wanna end up hunched over because of it or with tendonitis) But believe me: practice makes perfect and if you learn to observe and understand why you’re drawing what you’re drawing, why are you placing that line where you’re placing it and start thinking in 3D, you will surely improve.

Now for the part you truly want to look out for -

RESOURCES

USEFUL BOOKS/AUTHORS

MATERIALS

BLOGS WITH AN INFINITY OF TUTORIALS

HELPFUL WEBSITES

Last but not least, some artists that inspire me beyond words and that might also inspire you.

I hope this helps!

hello everyone i dont know the first thing about photoshop but i am looking to learn how to use it and i see that you can either pay $9.99 a month for photoshop and lightroom or for students you can pay $19.99 a month for like all of their apps and I was wondering if it’s worth it to get all of their apps for twice the price or if i really only need photoshop and lightroom?

hey!! u work in a hotel right?? can u talk abt what that's like?? i've got interviews soon for a couple of jobs at motels and i have no idea what to expect from the interview or the job

yes i do!! hmmmmMMm ok i’ve only ever worked at the one hotel i work at now but if you’re going for a front desk position, my advice is:

1. show off what a friendly outgoing people person you are!! you’re the smiling face of the hotel and you gotta make everyone feel welcome

2. know your area! guests will want recommendations on things to do, places to eat, and so forth. it looks really good if you can tell them what’s what without looking it up

3. in the interview, give examples of when you’ve had to deal with some unreasonably wild shit. weird stuff happens at hotels, and you gotta take it in stride without panicking. if you don’t have a true story, make one up. if you’ve ever worked with customers before you probably already have a story or several.

4. it’s a bonus if you’ve handled money before (cash register work, etc)

5. there’s probably some sort of software you’ll need to learn how to use. in my hotel’s case, we use autoclerk. it’s OK if you’ve never even heard of the software before. let them know you’re a quick learner and are familiar with computers. ever used sai or photoshop? congrats you’ve taught yourself a software.

those are the main things i can think about off the top of my head!! hope it helps. good luck!!!!💖💕

Would you ever post a tutorial on how you edit your single-sim photos? Meaning the photos where you introduce the newly aged up Sim with a nice background and drop shadow! I dont have Photoshop (can't afford it and won't have the time for it in a few months but still wanna learn) but I use a free program called Pixlr, and I'm trying to learn how to use it as if it were Photoshop. Heck I may end up getting it anyways.Any tips are helpful!

hey!!! you first need these backgrounds by bepixeled (eversims) and the custom white cas background by luumiasims
i also showed you how i edit my cas pictures after doing my single sim edit :-)
i really hope it helps you figuring how to use pixlr!!!
