How to Paint a Forest Background in Photoshop – PART 4 – Digital Painting Workshop


This is part of an instructional workshop series where you’ll learn how to digitally paint a forest background in Photoshop. In this tutorial, we show you how to use custom Photoshop brushes, keyboard shortcuts, basic color blending, foliage brushes, blend modes, filters, and layering background elements.

Part four of this digital painting tutorial covers how to create texture for the ground using Photoshop custom grass brushes, where to apply bunches of grassy areas to create depth and focus, and detailing foreground elements.


Original livestream occurred November 05, 2016.

Join us on a digital painting adventure! Today’s trip includes Eric and Josh.
