Hey! This blog post isn’t directly related to commercial product and still life photography but I find it still relevant.

I recently came across a YouTube video of a Phlearn tutorial on how to colorize an illustration in Photoshop. Phlearn is a company dedicated to making Photoshop tutorials. They have tons of free clips on their active YouTube channel as well as a large selection of longer, more detailed paid tutorials. They also do photography tutorials.

Now, their new tutorial is where they show  techniques to colourize an illustration. What I like is that they use a bunch of really useful basic tools in Photoshop. We get to see how layers masks can help you, tell you how much highlights and shadows can change an image, etc... I suggest you watch it, it's good.

There is the tutorial in questions:
 

What tutorial do you like? They us below!

Cheers,
