Tools used: this tutorial is done with the airbrush and the smudge tools.




Step 1

First I can start with a dark blue base on bottom half of my screen. I then go over that in a lighter blue. Remember all colours are YOUR choice mine are just examples =).Then I use the line tool and shade the sky in with light orange. (i leave a little white in the backround for look) I then go over my sky with an opaque red, and a smaller brush size.


Step 2

Ok, now I go back to the line tool and using an opaque white, I start at the center of my screen and make a line straight up. I then repeat this moving along the edge of the white as shown untill you have filled the top half.



Step 3

when I am finished with the sun I put small white lines evenly across the water. I then smudge the lines in a zig-zag pattern with a small brush size. ALMOST DONE!


Step 4

Finally for a last effect i put the brush size on 100% then lighten up the water, and brighten up the sun. With a VERY opaque white.


Step 5

Here is the finished copy of the sunrise. Remember you can add mountains, it doesn`t have to be on water, the limits are endless!!!!

Hope i was of some help,
