Very nice tutorial. This is a dumb question but how do you create a tutorial like that? Yes I know you can video tutorials but I just mean in that method. Is the process time consuming?

How exactly do you get the effect of light shimmering on top of the water?

Apofiss Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013   Digital Artist
there are various ways; soft brush or if done in a single layer then a bit of dodge tool may help~
