Halo by Jason Hahn
In this Photoshop tutorial, Jason Hahn will show you how he created this image from photos of 4-inch toy figures from the video game, Halo. After transforming the background, he constructs the background, including fog, an alien planet, and the ground on which the figures stand. Then he adeptly unifies the composite by blending all the elements together. For some finishing touches, he adds shadows beneath the figures, back-lit them, and added some light flares. This tutorial is a real treat and will inspire you to want to work with some figures on your own to practice and hone your Photoshop skills.
This tutorial contains both a written and video component.
