Today I’m going to answer the rethorical question “how do you photoshop?”
This is a walkthrough of how I make graphics. Yes, from scratch. Starting with the cap and ending up with the final result. This is not a tutorial, it’s a walkthrough of the process I generally go through, I won’t really explain how to use blend modes or curves or anything.
I have included screencaps. I do apologize, I use the Dutch version of Photoshop so I’m sorry if you get confused by the names of the layers.
ETA: you can view the final result here
Since I’ve had many questions about this graphic, I decided to make a walkthrough of how I created this. Thanks to all the people (anon or not) who asked how I made this graphic, here is a walkthrough!
I won’t go into too much detail, and my photoshop is in Dutch, if that causes any confusion please let me know.
Update: there is now a version of this tutorial by the lovely vanaheims with all the English definitions. go here.
Feel free to ask me questions about this walkthrough (oh, but please do come off anon so I can answer the question privately ;))
A graphic tutorial to create the smoke effect that I have used in multiple graphics.
Please do not copy this exact graphic.
You are however free to use my tips to create your own version with your own background images and textures and coloring. I have provided the textures I used, and feel free to use them, but I encourage you to use your own ideas.
Feel free to ask me questions! I hope this helps, and I would love to see what you make when you use this tutorial!
This is actually quite a simple type of graphic to make, but you have to be inventive with the composition of the images/textures. The textures are the most important parts of this type of graphic.
I’d definitely call this an advanced tutorial, since I expect you to know about layer masks and gradients and blend modes in general. I’m using Photoshop CS5.
Please don’t use this tutorial to copy the same graphic. Use your own imagination, textures, and amazingness to make something great. Good luck!
I’ve gotten a few questions asking how to do the ‘double exposure’ effect I used in this photoset. It’s super easy, and can literally be done in under ten layers, depending on how elaborate you want to be.
To start off with, double exposure is one of my favorite photography and film tricks. If you’ve never seen it done, check out a lot of gorgeous examples here and be inspired. One of my favorite ways of using double exposure is taking a portrait and overlaying it with trees, so I wanted to do that for my Doctor Who artwork.

I will update this list whenever I find something good. Enjoy!
THIS IS NOT A TUTORIAL, BUT RATHER A GENERAL GUIDE TO HOW I MAKE MY TEXTURES AND WHICH RESOURCES I USE TO DO SO. Making textures gets so much easier when you have the right resources. I also expect you to have at least an intermediate level of Photoshop.
Please note that all the textures in this tutorial can be found in this texture pack. Don’t take them to make your own.
Oh, and this guide is image and text heavy.
Alright, let’s start, shall we?
