Here you'll find a demonstration of the capture brush tip brush designed in the previous movie.
- [Voiceover] Okay so, we've got our brush design,…from the previous movie,…and I'm now going to go ahead and use that brush,…and do a quick painting,…just so you can see the brush in action,…and on the other side,…we'll talk a little bit about the results.…Okay so, I've got my brush done,…and I'm going to zoom up here to 100%.…I just want to look at some of the characteristics…we're getting in this brush,…so you can see how it does what it does.…For example, one of the things I like to do --…let me switch to --…gives us a better pointing mechanism.…
You can see here, where I like the way…that I used light pressure,…and you get this kind of tinting overlay…in certain areas of the brush.…One of the things this brush does not do,…and we'll figure this out later,…is it doesn't really blend color.…So I have to rely on the opacity…of the brush strokes to give the illusion…of greater complexity than is really there,…where as a mixed brush would allow me…to mix these colors together.…
It's going to give an entirely different look,…
John begins by going over some important brush tips that many artists are unaware of: bristle, erodible, and airbrush tips. He talks about how to customize the brushes and use them to mimic natural bristle brushes, chalk, and spray paint. He also addresses some global issues such as paint flow and spacing, which can have a dramatic impact on any brush you create.
From there he jumps into some more advanced techniques, such as blending colors, loading brushes with multiple colors, and using Brush Projection. Use these tips together to extend the toolset and maximize your creative freedom in Photoshop.
