Today we’re going to use all of our design resources to learn how to paint a furry cartoon character, how to code a Photoshop file to a working website (PSD to HTML), how to create a “Two-Faced” digital painting, how to create and use smart objects in Photoshop and much, much more.
It’s that time of the month again – that awesome time when I roam the Internet looking for the coolest, most useful Photoshop tutorials to show you. I’ve tried to broaden the search a bit, meaning I also prepared a very appreciated PSD to HTML tutorial. Take a few minutes to see the latest tips and techniques you can learn.
Digital painting is a prominent trend which sparks design inspiration and passion in the hearts of design enthusiasts everywhere, due to its closeness to traditional art.

I’ve hand-picked 20 of the most popular tutorials on the subject to help you guys begin (or continue) this artistic journey.
This tutorial will teach you how to work with and create your own cool styles from scratch using Photoshop and a few textures. I’ve checked a lot of tutorials around the web and look back on my own and they lack one important thing: why are those effects applied and how did the artist decide to apply those specific effects.
