What You’ll Be Creating Traditional painting by default is not very precise. The brushes are made for creating big patches of colors that may become details when observed from a distance. When you try to paint at a smaller scale using a tiny brush, it turns into a drawing. In digital painting the border between drawing and painting is quite blurred. In the end it boils down to one difference: if you’re trying to control the stroke, you’re drawing; if you want the stroke to be free and expressive, you’re painting. The problem occurs when you want to be expressive with your strokes and make them behave at the same time. It’s not possible in traditional painting, but in Photoshop we can do it quite easily, without overusing the Eraser Tool. Do you want to know how to turn a piece of line art into a beautiful painting and make the lines obsolete in the process? Follow me then! Tutorial Assets (optional) My brush pack Leather texture 1.

For a while, it seemed liked every client wanted grungy graphics. This might sound familiar, “I like it, but can we grunge it up more”. Don’t get me wrong, having some grunge can create a great deal of depth to a design or illustration, but there can be to much of a good thing. This is the technique I use because it is quick and consistent, making it easy to scum up any design or illustration. Notes This tutorial was created with Illustrator CS3. You should be alright if you have Illustrator CS2. I suggest having the Raster Effects at 300 dpi. This will generate the best quality in the effect. You can change this by going Effect > Document Raster Effects Settings and chose 300 dpi . Adding Grunge With your text selected, go Effect > Distort > Glass . In the options, use the following settings. Distortion: 15 Smoothness: 1 Texture: Blocks Scaling: 200% That’s it! You can still edit the text without loosing the effect. You can change the font, color, kerning, or whatever! Moreover, you can edit the Effect by selecting Glass in the Appearance panel. Tracing Image If you want to incorporate the text with other elements, it is a good idea to trace the image as a vector. Currently, if you place the text over an element that isn’t white, you will see white in the text instead negative space. First you will have to rasterize the image. Right now, the text is essentially vector art masking out a raster image. Both need to be rasterized before converting to vector. With the grunge text selected, go Object > Rasterize . Keep all the options the same, except change the Resolution to Use Document Raster Effects Resolution. With…
