Creating a Hallway Scene with Photoshop

with Steve Caplin

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, I'm Steve Caplin and I'm a freelance Photoshop artist. Over the years, I've often been asked to come up with illustrations of objects or scenes that either I can't photograph or that don't exist in the real world. And so like many Photoshop artist, I've worked out methods of drawing these picture elements from scratch. I wondered if it was possible to write an entire book, in which each chapter would open with a double page illustration created entirely in Photoshop. And which would then go on to explain how every element was created, and how the entire scene was then put together.

Over the years, I've often been asked to come up with illustrations of objects or scenes that either I can't photograph or that don't exist in the real world. And so like many Photoshop artist, I've worked out methods of drawing these picture elements from scratch. I wondered if it was possible to write an entire book, in which each chapter would open with a double page illustration created entirely in Photoshop. And which would then go on to explain how every element was created, and how the entire scene was then put together.

The challenge was to create the book using no photographic material whatsoever, and that book became, 100% Photoshop. This book included a piece called, The Hallway, a depiction of a private eye's entrance that might have existed in the 1930s. It's this scene that I reproduced in this workshop. I'm creating the wood texture used for the door, drawing the wallpaper, adding the lighting and building every single element of the image from scratch. Creating images entirely in Photoshop is highly instructive.

But more than that, it's great fun. It's a chance to unleash our creative abilities in full and to show just what we can do with our bare hands. I learned a huge amount about working with Photoshop's tool set creating these pieces and I think you'll learn a lot from this workshop.
