This week’s technique will teach you how to create a realistic flower tattoo.
Continuing with last week’s tattoo theme, this week we learn how to create a flower tattoo in Adobe Photoshop. Bert takes us through his unique approach for painting the colors onto the petals of a flower. He begins by selecting non-overlapping paths and creating layers filled with a sampled color. To give the petals depth, he cleverly uses the Photoshop dodge and burn tool to add the various highlights and lowlights. To complete the tattoo, Bert adds a simple stroke layer style and duplicates it across the various petal layers.
