Discover digital designers' secrets with Fotolia

Every month for the next 10 months, one of the ten digital artists taking part in the Ten Collection project (opens in new tab) will release a layered Photoshop (.psd) file of their artwork that you can download and explore to find out how it was created.

Each 150dpi file will only be available for 24 hours, starting tomorrow -- Friday 9 December 2011 -- with the option to buy a 300dpi version for £6 after the 24 hour period has elapsed, which can be used for commercial purposes. Subsequent file releases will be available on the 10th of each month.
