One of my favourite ways to visit California…sort of.

30 Minutes in Photoshop.

Great… Now I’m hungry! :drool:


Hi… I’m new :slight_smile: And I hope this’ll help with the motivation of making something every day :slight_smile: That being said, I need to make myself work on landscapes and backgrounds more, so here’s this… 45 mins.


Done in painter and I have no idea how long it took because I kept starting and stopping. Not many people realize that California is not all beaches and palm trees (although there is plenty of that). Much of it is desert as well. This is the high desert and those trees are Joshua trees (ugliest trees ever). I currently live int he California desert and I wish that I was Driving off to the Santa Barbara beach where i used to live.


no idea, i just ran on feeling… :stuck_out_tongue:

photoshop, ~45mn


lol nuther surfer :smiley:

30 min

Done in Painter. Ran out of time, but I hope to finish it later.


Creeto, very nice work! But i was wondering for a long time before i recognised the sails. Colours are great and the technique is outstanding.


Spent a little bit more than 3 hours on this using PS.


I used this photo as a room reference, with this chandelier, and looked at images of champagne on ice which gave me the idea to put a rose in one of the glasses. That’s it, the rest was made up and put together.

  and this is 1 h stage
