Self-initiated abstract art

Self-initiated work often means a lack of budget, but that doesn't mean it can't look good. It's all left up to your imagination and creativity.

In this tutorial I'll show you how - with a little time on your side - you can overcome the common myth of low budget work, creating an impressive piece of abstract work using Photoshop.

At the end of the tutorial, you should have two new libraries of elements to use in your future projects. The processes and techniques in this tutorial can be broken up and used in many different ways. Likewise, the final image of this tutorial can look as different as you want it to. It's up to you to experiment with the results.
