The Winter Soldier Movie Poster Tutorial

It’s time for our second superhero movie poster tutorial! (The first was the Man of Steel Movie Poster Tutorial)

This tutorial will recreate the cool-looking Captain America: The Winter Soldier teaser movie poster using professional texturing techniques.

I originally wanted to put out this tutorial on our first anniversary, July 13th (it’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year since I put up my first tutorial!). But I spent a lot of time creating it since I wanted the final image to look like the original poster as much as possible.

After many hours of work and some trial-and-error, I came up with this tutorial. It is my longest tutorial yet, but I believe it’s one of my best.

Give it a try, and don’t let the long-running time deter you from watching it. I’m sure you’ll have tons of fun and learn a lot by following this tutorial!

If you have any comments or questions, please leave them below, or send me a Tweet!

I would also like to thank all of you for the fantastic support I’ve received this last year; I appreciate it!

Looking for the files to download after liking it on Facebook but the download link isn’t working.


Please drop me a link where I can download the files.


Cant find the Guide Guide Icon? I am on a Mac using CS6.
Love your tutorials!


Great tutorial !!! IT deserves 4 stars. 1 star is missing for the layers panel (it could have been stretched out for more space to make layers visible) and explaining things, like What i will do and Why i will do ? Thanks anyways, good tutorial.


How can I get those files to with texture, etc., because I can’t find them here.

Thanks for replay
