The wood grain is warped, well as it should be, because trees are curved, and…now I'm ready to add in some knots.…Knots are an option in painting wood grain. Sometimes we don't want knots, we…want straight grain, as if it is carefully selected wood. We'll see this a lot with furniture.…I'll go back into my Liquify tool.…Notice that I'm going into Liquify, doing some things and then returning it,…allowing it to think for a minute and process that Liquify.…With too many things going on in Liquify, occasionally Photoshop will hang…or freeze slightly.…
I find it's better to do some warping, come back out of it, and go back in.…Now I'm going to paint some knots.…For this I'll go back to the Bloat tool, and I'll bring this Brush Size…down, maybe 300 or so.…I'll pull the brush over and see if it looks big enough, and I think I'd like to…go a little bit bigger.…I'll pull this Brush Size up to 400, again, leaving the Density and Rate low.…I'm not going to make the knots first, actually. What I'm going to make is the…
