Get Creative with Custom Brushes
Create A Variety of Design Effects with Custom Brushes
So this week I thought we would take a little break from 3D to play with brush effects. Here we are going to see how you can convert a photo into a custom brush that can be used in a variety of ways. I will show you how to process the image and define the brush then I show you a few interesting ways to use the brush as simple backdrop image or an abstract design element with numerous creative possibilities! This is one of those things when once you get the technique you will try on almost every image you have. It is fun!
What you will learn:
• Prep an Image to be a brush
• Define image as brush
• Creative uses of brush
• Layer and brush effects
• and much more!
