3D Dreamy Scene On The Sky: Tutorial

This Photoshop Tips & Tricks Tutorial was sent in by Dainis Graveris, and while it's all about the "dreamy" scene in the sky, learning the different type effects will help you along with 3d from Illustrator. It's an earlier version, not CS6, but like we said, you could always do all those effects in earlier versions, just maybe not so easily nor automated. September 27, 2012
