This tutorial gives you some insight in to techniques and concepts that I have employed in my digital illustration "Chasing The Unreachable", which is available in a high resolution over here: [link]

Learn how to:
- Create and colorize a textured background
- Create a custom brush-style in Adobe Photoshop
- Employ the Smudge-Tool and Displace-Filter
- Create and modify custom vector-shapes
- Optimize color-curves and alter colors using adjustment layers
--------------------------------------

Fell free to spread this tutorial on your blogs or websites but please link back to my portfolio madpotato.de ( [link]) for other people to get their hands on my tutorials and images as well.

I'm having a hard time using the smudge tool, I can't seem to get the same effect as MadPotato's. Can anyone explain me the steps to create that awesome effect?

You too! :] So do you work for some company in the art division? Because if not you should.

Alright so I have to tell you about the most awkward thing that happened today, I saw a picture of a Pumpkin glaring at a potato that someone did in cartoon style... Just thought I throw that one out there.
