This tutorial is one of the best I have seen on Deviant Art for a long time. The tutorial is easy to understand and follow and requires minimum knowledge to create a beautiful under water effect. As well as being easy to use the tutorial leaves room for improvement and experimenting so any budding graphic designer can place there own mark on the piece.

The tutorial could have how ever gone into more detail in regard shading and color management. Also the effects added after the tutorial ends would have greatly helped if they where explained. This would have left people being able actually to create the image posted rather than leaving a key segment not explained.
What do you think?

You got fav from me ;) like this tutorial and effects like this. Can you explain me how you sharpen your images? When i'm zooming it 400% i can see nice sharpen and difference, when i look photo on 100% zoom i don't see changes. It's cool.

Thank you you for this fun to follow tutorial. I like how you left it up to us to finish it off with our own style after you showed us the fundamentals! :nod: I've followed this tutorial here, to compose my own underwater piece!…

Thank You! Clap
