As more features are added to Adobe Photoshop, such as non-destructive brush painting, Layer panel improvements, and the new web-based and iPad-based versions, it might get intimidating to keep up with the changes. One way to keep yourself from getting overwhelmed is to only focus on the features relevant to the projects you want to make. Simply put: figure out what you want to create and find out the best way to make that happen using Photoshop.
Now, if you’re stuck figuring out what your next project is going to look like, we’ve selected some of the most amazing Photoshop projects available on Behance for you to draw some inspiration from. Sometimes, other than brushing up on online tutorials and courses, immersing yourself in the works of other amazing artists is the best way to get started on your own work.
Hopefully, these projects will prove that with the ever-increasing capabilities of Adobe’s flagship graphic editor program, the only limit to digital art is a user’s imagination.
