Manip Academy #11: Clarifying Clipping MasksAs a newbie to Photoshop, if you would just mention the word “mask,” my eyes would glaze over, and my mind would become this muddled mass of confusion. But as time has passed, I’ve learned to use a variety of the masks in Photoshop, and they are very helpful. However, my favorite is the Clipping Mask.
First, let me explain how a clipping mask works. If you have a manipulation with several layers of cutout stock, but you want to make some sort of change to only one of these cutouts or pngs, without a clipping mask it’s extremely tedious. You pretty much have to either make permanent changes, or work in a separate file. This makes it difficult to experiment with colors, hues, and other things offered by adjustment layers. So the mask literally “clips” to this cutout or png layer and whatever you do on the layer that’s clipped to the original cutout will only appear on that cutout.

Hi guys, here is my newest drawing. ^^
Took me a lot of time painting the clouds manually, but I enjoyed every moment of it. For the sky and the reflection, I used my favorite blue, turquoise and green colors.
Hope you will like it.
