Patterns are the solution to so many situations that come up in imaging.…Take for instance right here. We're going to look at this T-shirt that we have.…Now we are going to get a little closer here and zoom in on this.…You see that it has got this nice little ribbing, little tiny ribbing right on…the edges of the T-shirt.…Another file with a similar ribbing is this one here.…Here we are looking at ribbing on the edges of the sleeves, all these nice…little simple lines that also then wrap around the edges.…Let's go in here and create that kind of a pattern.…
The pattern is simple.…In this particular case, it's extremely simple.…I am just going to go in there and create a long vertical line like so and we'll…get in real close so we could see what's going to happen.…And I am going to fill that with a gray.…We will fill that with a nice deep gray like this.…I will just go ahead and say Fill with the Foreground Color and there it is.…Now, selecting this, there is where you are going to create the pattern.…
In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
