By thinking of great Photoshop Tutorials you might start looking on sites like tutsplus, abduzeedo or tutorialized. But one of the biggest sites for resources and inspiration is still The site launched in the year 2000 and consists of ~250 million uploads, like tutorials, brushes, showcases and any other thinkable creative medium. Because deviantART offers a quite poor search system, it is sometimes pretty though to find one’s way around. If you want to search in specific date ranges you have to be a premium. To make it easier for you, I’ve created a little compilation of deviantART tutorials and walkthroughs which aren’t featured on every site and should gain more attention.

A creepy but great effect achieved by “cutting and opening the head”. The tutorial is refered to an artwork linked in the deviation (description) itself.

Glass effects are that rare in the graphics community. But the most of them are “too simple” and mostly look noobish and raw. The following tutorial is contrary to the rest. It’s result looks stunningly real and detailed. All resources you need are linked in the deviations description.

Mime Face Painting

A pretty funny Photoshop manipulation tutorial. Improvement tip: Instead of lower the opacity of the last layer, use the wave filter; it adds a natural sketchiness so it looks more realistic.

Brushes coloring

Despite of its popularity (1500+ favorites at deviantART) I’d like to promote my own (VERY) simple deviantART tutorial. It is that simple, it shouldn’t be a tutorial, but people seem to love it.

    Bohos adulation whimsy. Is there any approach of carriage added evocative of the alleged aeon of Bohemianism than a gasbag balloon At the dial’s centre, the airship rises boring aloft Zanzibar. What bigger than its ballast and a aviate to act as astern easily for account and hours?
