In this tutorial I’ll show you how to create a Catwoman artwork using a range of photo manipulation techniques. You’ll learn how to create a dark night city scene from several stock images, practice some retouching techniques as well as enhance the light and contrast of the scene.
What you’ll be creating
We’ll start this tutorial by combining a sky and a city image using adjustment layers, masking and brush. Then we’ll add the moon and create a glowing light for it. Later we’ll add the walls and blend them together using the same previous techniques. After that we’ll add the model and do some retouch on her. We’ll use the bat brushes to increase the dark atmosphere for the image. We’ll add several adjustment layers to enhance the final effect.
You’ll need Photoshop CS3 or newer to follow this tutorial.
