Join Daniel Lieske for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a new file and new brush, part of Drawing and Painting in Photoshop - The Great Training.
- We now want to get our hands dirty…and in our first case study,…I want to create a digital drawing.…First thing we have to do is to set up our drawing surface.…File, New, and we have to decide how big our…digital canvas should be.…800 x 600 pixels is a little bit small.…I will use a slightly higher resolution.…
Normally I would work much higher than that,…but in this recording situation,…with limited space on the screen,…I will go for this medium resolution…of 1200 x 800 pixels.…OK.…And here is our window.…This is our digital canvas on which we now…want to create our digital drawing.…I will zoom in because right now it's displayed at 66.7%.…
I use ctrl + plus (+) to zoom in to 100%.…I really want to see this without any scaling.…Now that we have our canvas, we also need a brush…that we can use for our drawing,…and I want to create this brush…now and show you how it's done.…The brush will be based on a brush…that is very simple right at the moment.…It's one of my Tool Presets…and I will open up the Brush palette now…
