Photoshop street art

In this tutorial you'll take a virtual trip to east Los Angeles and gather some inspiration for a stunning Photoshop lowbrow masterpiece. Low-rider cars, dime store religious iconography and gangland tattoos provide everything you'll need to produce this urban pop-art composition.

As you work your way through the tutorial, you'll notice many real world resources. When a dripping paint effect is required, you'll use a photo of exactly that. An appropriate paper scan is used to create an authentic unbleached parchment background, and all the primary elements are converted drawings or photos. But it's the conversion process used here that gives the final image its signature appearance.
