In this tutorial, I am going to demonstrate how I created this concept artwork, and also discuss the importance of layer structure and housekeeping in Adobe Photoshop.

Enjoy and be creative!

 


 

**FYI**
In this video tutorial, I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
