A little while back I joined the Q&A site Quora. While I spend the majority of my time thumbing through some truly interesting answers to a wide variety of questions, most of my answers are on Photoshop and other design related topics (though people seem to be asking a bunch of #GamerGate questions lately). This Photoshop tutorial was created to answer a question about how to make an image more ‘punk’. Instead of going with the cut and paste style I went with the old punk flyer look, adding a good chunk of my own interpretation along the way. If you’re new to Photoshop or like picking up little things from how others work like I do, check it out.

The tutorial covers: Adjustment Layers (Gradient Maps and Levels), Clipping Masks, Advanced Layer Blending (Blend If), Blending Modes, and it’s got some shortcut tips if you’re looking to speed up your work.


If there’s anything you have questions about in Photoshop, Illustrator, Cinema 4D, or After Effects just hit me up with a comment. If you check out my Some Further Ado post I’ve specified all the areas I’m comfortable making tutorials for so if there’s anything you want a tutorial for let me know.
