Creating a stone wall: Pixel Playground

Create a stone wall in Photoshop

Explore Pixel Playground at lynda.com.

This week Bert shows us how to create a stone wall using a variety of textures. He starts out by using the pen tool to draw in the pattern for the bricks. Next he uses the filter gallery to add a stone texture to the pattern for a sense of realism. From there he uses a custom brush to paint in weathering and colored texture and then uses another brush to add damage to the wall. Finally, with a unique layer effect he is able to paint and draw in shapes to virtually chip away at the wall. Check out this week’s video on lynda.com, and get started.
