What You’ll Be Creating Our tutorial will create a very evil if not sinister rabbit named Orifice. The beauty of this tutorial is that all of this was achieved using only a mouse. ALL OF IT! I do hope this will encourage those who longingly stare at tablets and Cintiqs online to believe that they can achieve just as much with what they have. Your tools are what you make them… they can be what holds you back, or the driving force propelling you forward. 1. Fleshing Out the Sketch Step 1 Our first step will be to bring in our drawing. I used my scanner at 300 dpi to catch as much of the detail as possible. This process can be a bit difficult if you’re using material in a bound sketchbook. You’ll notice the slight blur of the tail. This happens when the book page curls inward at the binding. We’ll be working with a clean line quality from Adobe

What You’ll Be Creating This tutorial will equip you with the skills to create a style of fractal known as tiles. The concept of a tile (think subway tile or kitchen backsplash) is ideal for a fractal application because of the repeating pattern of self-similarity. In this tutorial we will explore the power of post-transforms, learn how to apply a final transform, and explore different formulas known as variations within the Apophysis program. Explanation of Tiles The fractal tile style comes in a wide variety of shapes, from squares to hexagons and beyond. All of them follow the same basic ideas to create a pattern. Once you’ve conquered the structure for a tile, the possibilities are literally endless, with a whole plethora of fun formulas to be added and shapes to explore. Today we will focus our attention on the basic square tile. 1. Basic Structure of a Square Tile Step 1 To begin creating the structure for our square-tiled fractal, open the Editor and click the button for a New/blank flame . Step 2 The next step is to set up the first transform. We do this because it will serve as a template for the rest of the tile structure. Setting …

Advertise here with BSA Among many powerful tools in Photoshop is the king of kings: the pen tool. This tool is shrouded by personal anecdotes of confusion and frustration. Although creating paths with the pen tool is difficult at first, the process becomes easier with practice and is well worth the effort. Every path is vector-based which means you can scale it larger or smaller without any quality loss. But paths can be very frustrating if you don’t know how to use them. I’d like to cover the process of converting a path into a shape layer. In case you didn’t already know, shape layers are merely paths that can hold fills & outlines. This also means you can apply layer effects and even filters if you convert the same into a smart object. Note that a path is merely a series of points like an outline which can become a selection. It’s the raw material of shapes but not quite a shape in-itself. 1. Drawing the Path First create a new document and just draw any path on the canvas. You might draw a crazy random shape or you might take the time to design a simple icon. I’ve created a relatively flat checkmark which looks like this: Note that you need to actually complete the path in order to create a shape. This means after creating the first anchor point you should place a few more on the document and bend/twist them as needed. Bring the shape all the way around back to where you started and click back onto the first anchor point to close the path. The pen icon will have a little circle next to it when you’…
