Creative Animated Water Effects in Photoshop
Create and animate a stylized water drop effect in Phososhop
In this project we will take an effect I did years ago and update it with some new effects and custom animations all in Photoshop. First you will see how to create water drop shapes using filters and then create a realistic animation effect using smart objects and displacement maps for a more natural look.
Photoshop World Attendees: If you were at my session at PSW I gave out a code to access this for free. Just apply it when you check out and will get full access.
What you will learn:
