This week Bert shows us how to create a pattern brush that will be used to make a gold tassel for a theater curtain.
He begins by using the Pen tool to draw a bent line, which he then duplicates and shifts up to make a strand within the braid. Next, he duplicates that form, flips it vertically, and lays it over the first strand to create the braid. To give the stands dimension, he adds a bevel and emboss.

In this week’s Pixel Playground tutorial, Bert shows us how to use the Blend tool in Illustrator to manipulate paths.
His first step is to create one of the vertical slats on the upper portion of the garbage can with the Pen tool, then copy and drag the duplicate to the right. He then bends the top of the left slat outward; this will become the slat farthest to the left.

This week Bert shows us how to create an animated spotlight moving across a brick wall- using nothing but Adobe Photoshop.
His first step is to create two versions of the brick wall, a lighter version that appears to be lit from below, and a darker version that appears to be lit from above. Next, he adds a black mask to the light layer, adds a circle to the mask, and fills it in with white. This creates the spotlight, which he then softens with a Gaussian blur.
