Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Silhouette: Domes and towers, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 1: Concept.
With the rectangular shapes on the castle set up, now we're going to add some domes…and some towers using a different custom brush shape.…We're going to start with a Round brush from the Photoshop Brush Picker.…And then open the Brush window to make some modifications to it.…First, we want to turn off transfer because we want to paint at 100% opacity again.…If the line that your brush is producing has lumps in it, you can decrease the spacing.…You'll also want to turn this into an ellipse by adjusting the roundness of the brush.…
Pull down on this top control to elongate the circle, then rotate the angle 90…degrees so that the ellipse is upright. Then return to that document we used to…create our Square custom brush to use as a scratch pad.…This Elliptical brush makes it easy to paint elegant rounded dome shapes.…Return to the main plate and let's paint a large round dome on top of the castle.…If you build up each side of the dome, you can maintain reasonable symmetry as you work.…
Next let's add some towers around the dome.…
