Ap­ply a pat­tern

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

For the royal pat­tern, I cre­ate half of an icon, then mir­ror a copy of that half to cre­ate a sym­met­ri­cal de­sign. Now that we have a sin­gle icon on its own layer, I’ll du­pli­cate that layer so that we have two copies of the same icon. Us­ing Free Trans­form, I place the copy so it’s the next icon in the pat­tern. Hit Ctrl+ Shft+Alt+T and Pho­to­shop makes the next step in the pat­tern. Re­peat!

In­tro­duce a tex­ture

My paint­ings al­ways have a crisp dig­i­tal feel to them – yuck – so it’s time to go out­side and shoot some grunge photos. On a layer mode of your choice, com­bine the shot of my photo tex­ture and a de­tailed crop from an oil paint­ing to give this dig­i­tal art­work 100 years of per­son­al­ity. You can even add a can­vas tex­ture if you like.
