Creating digital art in Photoshop requires layers. Layers are like stacks of paper, some you can see through and some are opaque. Some art pieces have as little as 3 layers, and some have 70 or more!
Why are layers so important?
Each of the following photos are a result of 15 or more layers. Each layer has been worked on individually with blending modes, paint, opacity and other creative touches. Once completed I save the stacks of layers as a .psd or .tiff file so I can go in and adjust the piece in the future if I want to. I then flatten the image and save it as a .jpg file.
Mastering layers is a key to creating digital art in Photoshop.
