ROCK FACE TUTORIAL by Snigom ROCK FACE TUTORIAL by Snigom
ROCK FACE TUTORIAL FOR PHOTOSHOP CS2

(note: This Tutorial will work in ALL versions down to 4.0 however, some of the features were located in different areas in lower versions.)

OK! So my first Photoshop Tutorial is finished. I have done these before...but in Microsoft Word. So forgive me if it's not 'flashy' and neat looking like some others. I just didn't have alot of time. However, it does have a bunch of neat screen shots! :D

Please send me a note if you have any questions about this tutorial or any of the features listed. I'll help out any way I can.

Remember this is only 1 of 3. They get more complicated from here on out, but if you complete them, you will be stronger in Photoshop.

If you have the "limited" or "lite" version the channels won't be there.

Also, just like 'layers', 'colors', 'history', etc its a tab that you may have to show in order to see.

Use the help feature and type in channels in the search. If the function is supported in your version you should see it :)

Thank you. :3 That tutorial was really helpful. I just added one last step myself and hide the background by clicking on the EYE symbol. This is the result. --> [link]

Could this tutorial be used to make a oceanic cliff background thats already in the process of being made? I'm asking because I want to finish a picture today.

Well, its a texture generator. You can use it to create the rock face of a cliff, I wold play with it some instead of rendering it as is.

Well, I figured out an alternate way using the brush, but this would be good for stone wall textures and stuff.

So kudos to you good sir.

Thank you :D Its all an illusion, but it teaches the person using the tutorial how to use the Channels feature. So that anything you do Black & White can translate into 3 dimensions using the "render Light source" tool :)

You're most welcome! In all honesty you're the only artist to have understood the lesson thus far. Most people render the exact formation I did and place it into their image; which is fine. However, you've used the technique in your own manner to generate the Mountain and I think the bridge/wall in the background. So I applaud you! :clap:

for the record you must be in RBG Mode for this to work....apparently Ligting Effects and CMYK are not friends XD

took me ike 20 minutes to figure out why i couldn't get lighting effects to work...and i felt dumb. as soon as i finish what i'm using this tut for i'll post a link....by the by, this is a brilliant tutorial

Snigom Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Wow, you're right! I never used it in CYMK mode. I guess you'd have to render in RGB (probably a different file) and then import it to a CYMK file and re-adjust the colors.

for some ass-backwards reason i'm forever working in CMYK by default. i should change that becuase most stuff is more RBG friendly XD

Honestly speaking its truly the smarter choice to work in CYMK because it guarantees that what you do on-screen will be represented when it prints. When you work in RGB, it gets converted to CYMK anyway when it gets printed. SO what I do is work in RGB, then convert to CYMK and perform color adjustments as necessary.

Photoshop is a professional program that can be used to generate paintings, adjust photos, make web pages, or anything graphic. Sadly it isn't free :( Its most likely the most expensive software on the market. Luckily, students tend to get discounts when purchasing.

However, there are other programs out there you can paint with that are free like the program Open Canvas and Sai Tool. Run a google search on them and you should be able to find a free version. Although it will likely be limited in its functionality unless you pay.

This is a wonderful tutorial - but I only got a little bit into it. I do not appear to have a channel tab on the program that I use (Photoshop elements 3.0) I was wondering if you knew how to get the channel tab?

:iconsnigom:
Snigom Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2007  Professional Traditional Artist
OH NO!!! :sniff: The Elements version of Photoshop is a stripped down copy that does not have the Channels Feature :( I think the intended use of Elements is for basic photo correction and layout. You can paint with it...but alot of the rich and complex features were removed to make it cheaper and/or free :(

I am sorry :(

Thanks. There are more to come, trust me. I have two more in this genre. Theya re the fundamentals of Photoshop beyond just painting. You can generate amazing things in photoshop with a wacom. I know a ton of wonderful things that people rarely use. Like Layer Properties, Quick Mask Mode, and Channel effects.
