Join Owen Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Mimicking a spray-paint stencil, part of Creating a Handmade Look in After Effects: 2 Design and Animation.
- In 05 02, I have a cardboard background…and some text that's been turned into a shape layer…and customized to look a little cut out.…By using some extreme paintbrush settings,…I'm going to fill the negative space with color,…leaving the area covered by the text, untouched.…I'll start by turning the eyeball on the NO off.…I want to concentrate mostly on my paint layer first.…So, since I need a layer to paint on,…I'm going to go to Layer, New, Solid.…I'm going to rename this "Spraypaint".…
Make sure it's the Comp Size and hit Ok.…Because the paintbrush can only paint on the layer view,…we need to double-click this layer in the composition…to bring it up in the layer view.…I'll now select my paintbrush tool.…If the brushes and paint window haven't popped up for you,…go up to Window,…and make sure you have Brushes and Paint checked.…Now it's time to set up some pretty extreme settings…on my paintbrush.…I'm going to take the diameter of my paintbrush…all the way up to 1,000.…
I'm going to take the roundness up to 70.…
