Tutorial - 11th promenade by arufa Tutorial - 11th promenade by arufa
Hardly a tutorial but it's the best I can do at the moment. It does not go into specifics, I could write a book if that was the case.

After hearing requests from many people, here is what I can provide.

Download if the text appears too small.

Edit: deleted other... I seemed to have uploaded two

There is a small icon in the VP window which you click on and it drops down a menu. Check render grids onto Photoshop (and make sure its on a clean layer!)

Perspective grid! You've inspired me to make my own (only owns Elements 3) and have a crack at backgrounds. It's so effective!

I downgraded. >,> Before February 2008 I used CS2 but suddenly decided to grow a conscience - ditched it because I didn't actually own it. =\ Last pic I did on CS2 was [link] , but back then I used less tools than I use on Elements now, so I didn't miss the switch. Now? I'm beginning to lol ... perspective grid's another feature to mock me with noo ...

How long have you used CS5? And how long on average to complete each of these bigger pictures? /jealous/

I can't recall accurately how long, I'd probably guess around 6-8 months, though I didn't start intensely using CS5 until the end of Feb this year. I just felt SAI was limited to what PS can do. Not saying SAI is bad, its a great lightweight program but there are some things PS can do much quicker. First few pictures took a while and had to get used to the fact PS doesn't blend like SAI does (opacity as to smudging).

On average, I'd say I spend about 1-2 hours sketching/ composing the idea. Colouring ranges, on average 3-5 hours. This one took me about 7-8 hours if I remember right.

Is it only that version that has the perspective box or do they all have that function?

arufa Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2011   Digital Artist
I believe it was first implemented in CS2, so any versions from there on should have it

Yeah, almost most of it is done in Photoshop - the only exception is just sketching, which I do in SAI

I'm actually really interested in how you made the grid at the start. This is a great tutorial for improving shading though!

Ah, didn't elaborate on that. If you use the later versions of Photoshop there is a tool called 'Vanishing point' under filters. You can draw up your planes and then render it onto a layer.
