MAKING OF YUKA by Lukasz Szeflinski, Poland
After receiving some positive feedback to my last work “yuka” I decided to write a detailed tutorial about creating process. My main goal was to create a painting which was really detailed. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to do it without a real photograph so I started to look for something that would interest me and make me want to spent a lot of hours painting it in photoshop. And I found a perfect picture on http://img10.picsplace.to/2/yukahanedamaid.jpg . I received a lot of e-mails saying that it’s not a big deal to just paint something like this using a real photograph. What can I say, if you don’t like it don’t look at it or try to do it and you will see how much time it takes to create it like I did.
Program: Adobe Photoshop /Illustrator
