Discover how to use Adobe Photoshop, without any added fine art skills, to modify artwork and turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Author and illustrator Bert Monroy takes an unexciting photo and transforms it into an amazing dream sequence by combining it with other photos and techniques. His process touches on compositing, digital painting, masking, and other key image editing techniques. All you need is Photoshop, some images that could use a boost, and your imagination!
In this chapter we are going to look at the dark side of humanity. We'll look at war. I'm going to take a city and destroy it by war. Now to do this, I did a search on the web for demolition sites. There's tons of material out there, and that's a good place to go and look for images for your projects. Just make sure that when you download an image, that is something you have the rights to, that it is royalty free, and that you can in fact use it, and hopefully then you are still going to manipulate it enough so that it doesn't look anything like the original image.
Another thing about the web, though, is that everything is going to be low-res, so it's kind of hard to get some real good imagery if you want to create a giant mural, but it's a good source for a lot of reference material. But we are going to go in here and now destroy a whole city. Let's see how we do it.
