MAGICAL PHOTOSHOP FILTER THAT MAKES PERSPECTIVE GRIDS FOR YOU
Okay, maybe people know about this for awhile already, but I just discovered it last night when I was copy pasting something and instead of pressing Ctrl+V, I hit Ctrl+Alt+V.
Best things tend to happen by accident.
(Except maybe pregnancies, but even that’s arguable)
Holy balls on a platter this is helpful.
Thank you so much for making this! I’d.. Never really thought of doing this. D:
I did it! I uploaded a small set of my original Photoshop brushes to Deviant Art to share with the world. If you use these brushes, please credit me and link to the DA page. Thank you very much!
Since 95% of my work starts out as a pencil sketch, I wanted brushes that I could use to clean up smudges, get rid of structure lines, and add details, without losing the organic, textured quality of the original.
Details and recommendations:
1. Pencil line (shown here with flow set to 60%) - my magnum opus thus far. I use this to clean up my sketches, and the size is perfect for images scanned at 400dpi. (at least if you sharpen your pencil every 10 seconds to draw tiny fussy lines like I do.)
2. Spongy brush (shown here with flow set to 60%) - a variation of #1, but softer and rougher. I use it for rough coloring and shading.
3. Cloud brush (shown here with flow set to 60%) - what the title says. I also like to use it as an eraser when I’m painting with harder brushes so the textures get mixed up and don’t get too monotonous.
4. Scritchy line (shown here with flow set to 100%) - a harder line for details or more cartoony lineart. I also like to decrease the flow and/or opacity and use it for shading sometimes, for a cross-hatched or scribbly sort of look.
5. Texture… thing? (shown here with flow set to 100%) - I mostly use this for backgrounds. I’m still figuring out how to unlock its full potential.
6. Smooooth cloudy brush (shown here with flow set to 100%) A much smoother painting brush that still has just enough grit in it to make it interesting.
Enjoy, and please take good care of my babies! 0u0
AH I wanna try these brushes THANKS A LOT ヽ(°◇° )ノ
How to make the “Just add water” tool in Photoshop
woot! Not that I’m planning to do any actual painting in the near future… but you never know!
and then she realized she knew nothing about photo shop.
been using photoshop since version 3
never ever would have thought of this
i suck at photoshop.
Oh. My. God.
Ah, here’s a video. I hope this helps, too! There are four parts so just go to their channel to watch all.
[This is off one of Neonnoodle’s posts from SomethingAwful, but it’s such a useful technique I wanna repost it here.]
Here’s one approach I’ve found, which is based on the gamut mask idea, but a little simpler and tuned to working in PS:
1. Start with three color swatches: a red/magenta…
In at least Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign CS5 (maybe other programs/versions too), if you go to Window > Extensions > Kuler, you get a palette with preset color palettes that compliment each other, as well as a tool to help you make new ones. Then you can save it to the Kuler list, or to your Swatches palette

The Brushes (Tutorial Part 2)
Hard Round 25 Fading
Take your normal hard brush, make it 25px large. Now go to the Brushes menu and click “Other Dynamics”, and set the Flow jitter to Pen Pressure in the drop down menu.
Hard Round 5 pixels
This is your basic, default hard brush when you load up Photoshop with the regular brushes it should be right at the top… no need to change it!
Load up default Photoshop brushes and scroll down til you see the soft brushes—- pick one that is at least 60px large. Open the Brushes menu and click “Shape Dynamics” and set it to Pen Pressure, then click “Other Dynamics” and have the Opacity and Flow jitters set to Pen Pressure as well.
Tips For Custom Sullivan Fur Brushes
- these are easiest to use when highlighting, try picking a color that is lighter than the area you are drawing on.
- the brushes are pressure sensitive, so you’ll want to use these with a tablet. try drawing lightly for softer fur, and push harder for more tufty fur.
- just scribbling one of these over your drawing will make it look dumb, trust me. try layering the different brushes, or going over with your own brushes to add in your own details for a more realistic look.
- try playing around in the Brushes menu… color effects can look really neat with these, see what works for you :]
- you may NOT attempt to resell or redistribute these brushes; if you want to share these brushes with others just link back to the original deviantART post.
- please give credit when you use these! i’m not normally fussy about giving credit, but i worked hard on these so it would be appreciated.
