Join Kevin Stohlmeyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Erodible brushes, part of Using Wacom Tablets with Photoshop.
- [Instructor] So I've opened up the Ben.psd file…from our exercise files,…and the last demo that we're going to look at…is the erodable brush tip.…The erodable brushes give you the look and feel of a sketch,…such as a pencil or pastel brush,…where it actually erodes as you draw,…and you can sharpen the tip when you need to.…To see how this effect looks,…take a look at the sketch layer over on our layers panel,…and you can see kind of a final result here.…I've got this nice sketch quality…on top of our existing image.…To achieve this, we're gonna start by creating two layers.…
The first layer is just going to be a blank layer…that we're then going to fill with white.…After we've filled this,…we're gonna change our opacity down to about 30%.…Think of this like a piece of tracing or parchment paper.…This is gonna kind of mask our image a little bit,…and allow us to draw on top of it unobstructed.…Then we're gonna create a second layer,…and we're actually gonna name this sketch2.…This is where we're gonna do our actual work.…
