- [Speaker] Now I wanna show you an easy way…to make a random or toss repeat.…I just happen to have some leaves here,…and I'm gonna go ahead and select one of them…and make a brush out of it.…And this is a really cool trick…for doing a random pattern.…So we'll go Edit, Define Brush Preset,…we'll call it Leaf 1, and let's grab…another one while we're here.…We'll select this one, Edit, Define Brush Preset again,…and we'll call this one Leaf 2.…
