The Wow Effect: Offsite Tutorial FeatureA Tutorial FeatureThe Wow Effect: Offsite Tutorial Feature by AbbeyMarie
DA has an amazing tutorial section, but it's always good to gather resources from more than one place. So, here is a list of some outstanding tutorials I have stumbled upon. Some are old, some are new, but all of them are worth giving a look at!
Texture for Beautiful Composition
"In this tutorial we will be taking a look at masking and how you can give your work a sense of depth using this technique, as well as layering textures and elements to help lift your piece – in this case using paper to create rock and mountain-like elements. This tutorial is an example of how a few simple techniques can be used to create more elaborate illustrations."
3 Sites I Can't Recommend Enough3 Sites I Can't Recommend Enough by AbbeyMarie
I never liked tutorial sites. All they seemed to offer was a slew of cheap tricks and what ever lame effect was trending at the time. I believe tutorials should be singular effects that can be built upon, used across different genres, and most importantly timeless. That is what SurrealPSD offers, along with articles concerning freelance work, and photomanipulation (as opposed to graphic design). It's a shinning gem. Plus it's ran by conzpiracy, so you know it's legit.

I love any and all kinds of editing and design. If I'm not familiar with a certain technique, style, or program, I am incredibly eager to learn about it. My strongest suit is definitely Photoshop, but I have also just gotten into 3D modeling/design. I haven't done much with it but I hope to learn a lot and to create some really great things.
I would love to be able to work in some kind of graphic design or photo retouching/editing job. I love designing with vectors and have always loved editing photography. So far nothing has come up but I continue to keep my eyes open for new opportunities.
Also I would like to thank everyone for the favorites and adding me to their watch. It really means a lot to me and I appreciate it greatly. I wish I could thank everyone personally. I used to do that, but it got to a point where I was commenting on people's pages so much so quickly, that DeviantArt thought I was spamming and banned me from commenting for twenty minutes.
Thanks again to everyone and please feel free to comment, critique, or if you'd just like to talk, I'm always here.
