Abstract Painting Tutorial - Part 2

 
Now let's do something with these 2 lines.

These are going to be our most foreground elements.

Step 1. Transform the lines.

Step 2. Make them look more like they are staying there. I will use layer styles for this.

The Drop shadow is white.

Inner shadow will play the role of light here so it is going to be yellow, like the color of background.

Texture the whole element using bevel and emboss with texture.

Just copy the layer style to another board shall we say.

But because of our element has different angle some changes have to be done in layer styles.

As you can see I've added some red to my picture using low flow textured brush.

Crop the picture AND FLIPED IT OVER 90 degrees.

Moreover I've made some changes in layer styles.

I will color balance the whole picture (Adjustment layer – Color balance). We will make it a little bit darker.

Thanks for a well written tutorial that combines photoshop techniques and art, and one that is full of refreshing and creative ideas. Art is in the eye of the beholder; unfortunately, most photoshop users are technical geeks and art just passes them by.
