Therefore this month we’re thrilled to welcome back photorealistic painter Bert Monroy in a threepart series featuring the work he did in his latest impressive artwork, Times Square.
That you can nothing apart from pixels and imagination, the Making of Times Square seriesgenerously shares the Photoshop tools and techniques he developed during this project.
In this new addition to our Online Training Library, the Bert Monroy. I know it’s the largest image he’s ever created, and it definitely pushed the boundaries of the software and hardware he had available to use. Notice that bert was working on this hyperrealistic illustration for four years, and says he’s not quite done with it yet. Each element is meticulously created from scratch using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Known we are thrilled to also allow you to know that Bert will begin production on a Making of Time Square video course later this month, that is likely to be published early next year.
Epson called DisplayTrans Backlight Media that Bert helped develop. From a distance it looks like pretty easy photograph of a canal in Amsterdam on a foggy day but when you get closer and see the intense quantity of detail at nearly any level, you realize that’s no photograph. In the first installment of the new series, Bert Monroy.The Making of Times Square, The Tools, Bert explains how he used the tools inside Photoshop from brushes, to textures, to layer styles, and more to recreate his meticulous version of reality. After the month, we’ll release The Making of Times Square, the People, in which Bert shares the special approach he needs for creating details from hair to eyes to clothing of the NY landmark in his painting. With that said, this week, we released part two, Bert Monroy.The Making of Times Square, The Techniques, in which he shows you how he uses those tools in combination to create the hundreds of little projects that become parts of his larger work.
Fearless to boot, Frankly, I believe Bert’s inclusion of real friends and family in his work that shows he’s not only talented and generous.
This is a great opportunity to see how the creative impulse turns into a practical workflow from a master of his medium.
Is in his element when sharing what’s he’s done with others, it just so happens that Bert is one of those generous spirits who not only enjoys watching his own ideas take shape. On top of this, paint with dynamic layer effects, lock the transparency of a layer, and select, scale, and rotate a custom brush all with intention to produce the final ‘eye catching’ effect.
Now let me ask you something. Are you staying warm? So this technique teaches you very much. That said, this week, he’ll show you how to use a custom Adobe Photoshop brush to paint an eye from scratch. Basically, neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night keeps Deke from the swift completion of his appointed rounds.
Howdy, Deke geeks!
