Creating Atmospheric Depth for Illustrations in Photoshop
See Details
Released Jan 28, 2013
We will begin this process by learning what atmosphere is by looking at some real life examples and discuss how light interacts with atmosphere. From there we'll study some other examples of atmospheric effects such as misty and foggy conditions as well as sunsets. Along the way we'll explore how we can incorporate these different atmospheric effects into an illustration.

As we'll see, adding atmosphere to an illustration can strengthen the depth and perspective of the scene along with reinforcing the visual direction of the composition. By implementing the concepts we cover about atmosphere in this course, you'll be able to push the visual depth, direction, and appeal of your own illustrations.
