Join John Derry, a pioneer in the field of digital painting, as he shows how to master the natural-media painting features introduced in Photoshop CS5 in Photoshop CS5: Painting with the Mixer Brush. This course shows how to use the Mixer Brush, the Bristle Tips feature, and a new mechanism for blending colors in Photoshop to add beautiful, painterly effects to photographs, enhance artwork with paint-like strokes and illustrations, and paint entirely new art from scratch. This course also covers customizing brush characteristics and surface textures, applying keyboard shortcuts to paint smoothly and efficiently, and using a Wacom tablet to get the most out of Photoshop CS5’s painting features. Exercise files are included with the course.
If you are a premium member of the lynda.com Online Training Library, or if you are watching this tutorial on a DVD-ROM, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I've put the files into the Exercise Files folder, and in each of these, you'll find some content. There will be various Photoshop PSD files that you can load that I describe within the chapter. Also, I've got some brushes that you can load, and we explain, in Chapter 5, how to load these brushes into Photoshop's Tool presets.
Once again, there is a source file here that you can use to follow along with what I'm doing, and so on and so forth. So basically, you have got a number of pieces of content here that I'll call out during the title, and this is where you are going to find them, in the Exercise folder. If you are a monthly subscriber or annual subscriber to lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files. But you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. Let's get started.
