Warning: HUGE file [DL link below for slow connections]What's "spacing?"
Spacing gives you this effect.
While it can be useful, generally it is not. Photoshop's default setting for spacing is about 5%.!!! This tutorial should translate fairly painlessly to any adobe CS edition. As far as technique, this should also work in any advanced program with layers. !!!
Save this to your computer, don't click 'open'
To load brushes: With brush tool active, Right click > LoadAt the very bottom of the list you'll see two brushes named 175. I used the first one.
I made this assuming you had little to no experience with Photoshop. So don't be insulted that I showed a pic of the move tool lol (sorry if there are spelling errors. Also, sorry for the scatteryness. That's how I organize things)
Should translate to other programs decently well. if something is unclear or hard to see, let me know and I'll clarify in the artist's comments. Noticed people wanted to know how to use textures and how I painted, so...this.
Here's the finished speedpaint & another with the same techniques
This was about 2 hours of work. So if you were to keep going
it would need more highlights and such, which you can figure out on your own.
Why use RGB and not CMYK if you're going to print?A:
You can use either. I think the reason I do it is because I've had problems in the past moving textures to a project because the Color Modes were different. Or it's just a habit lol
Q: "This is similar to the effect "photo filter" - except to use photo filter on an entire picture it needs to be flattened"
But photo filter does affect the entire picture if used as an adjustment layer on top of the other layers?
A: Super true, I didn't mention that. I rarely use adjustment layers. Who knows why. Doesn't mean you guys can't, so keep that in mind when you're working! If you don't know how, that's fine, my method above is basically the same.
