you going to show us today? Ok, in part one and two of the brushes tutorial
I showed you how to load and use brushes and now I want to show you how to do something
a little bit more customized. This cover that I created for industrial grunge is inspired
by covers that I saw on some popular video games. The brushes used on these video games
were from bitbox.com and I’m going to provide a link below this tutorial on how you can
download those brushes. Basically these are the brushes that were used for these popular
video games and I think they are really a cool effect. So I’m going to show you how
to do that today. So this is going to be our end result that we are looking for or something
similar to this. I’m going to go ahead and move this out of the way. I’m going to use
this for inspiration but you won’t be able to see it on the screen because it’s out of
my window. This is the photo that I’m going to be working with right here. It is an extracted
image. I have a white background on. I show in my other tutorials how to extract a photo
and how to give it this popular HDR look which I use topaz adjust to do and I’ll put a link
to that at the bottom of this tutorial as well. You can also create the HDR effect in
other ways with Photoshop but I’m not going to get into that today. But you can do a search
on that and find some other ways to do that. Let’s go ahead and get started. I have my
work window up. When you have your move tool selected I like to have auto select layer
and show transform controls selected. You need to go ahead and have your spatter brushes
loaded and I do have mine loaded. I went ahead and pressed on the brush tool and I’m coming
up here and you can see that I have my brushes right here. If you want to see the thumbnails
a little bit easier you can come over here and click this arrow and come down where it
says large thumbnail and then you can see them easier. And these are the brushes that
we are going to be working with right here. Let’s go ahead and get started. What I like
to do is go ahead and add a new layer for each brush that I use and I also like to have
my white layer on so that I can see exactly what’s going on. I’m going to go ahead and
pick a brush to start with. I’ll go ahead and choose this one. This picture is pretty
small so when it first comes in you just see this little cross and if you want the brush
to show up you have to press the left bracket so it reduced the brush so it starts to show
up. I’m going to go ahead and come over here. I want to show you how you can rotate the
brushes. You come over to this little icon, click on brush tip shape and then this will
allow you to turn the brush. So I’m going to turn it here and get it how I want it and
move this out of the way and go ahead and add my spatter mark right here. Oops, edit
undo. I do want it black so I’m going to come over here and swap those or you can reset
them. Black is on top. I’m going to go ahead and add my first splatter. I want it a little
bit darker so I’m just going to hit it a couple times. I want to add it underneath my player
so I’m just going to drag it down. And that’s my first splatter. And what you can see though
is these spatters have a little bit of extra design in them besides the spatter and so
it’s causing this line up here so you may want to use a mask or an eraser to get rid
of this as you move along. What I’m going to do is go ahead and erase it now so that
I don’t have to worry about which layer it’s on later. I’m going to get a soft brush and
I’m just going to erase what I don’t want. Now I’m going to add my next spatter so I’m
going to go ahead and add a new layer. This time I want to use red. I’m just going to
choose a color out of his uniform and make it a little bit brighter. Choose my brush,
pressing my left bracket to make it smaller. I’m going to go ahead and make this back here.
I have to click on my brush tool not my eraser tool. I actually want to turn this a little
bit more. And I’m going to go ahead and move it. Erasing that part. I don’t want it to
show and I’m just going to move along here. Add a new layer. A few of the layers are on
top, give it a 3D look. This is going to be right off of his uniform. I still need to
click my brush tool, not my erase tool. If I put something underneath that, that will
show up better. I’m going to add black underneath that. I’m just going to move that with my
move tool. You can rotate it if you want to. Basically some parts of it look like they
are on top and some parts looks like they are underneath. Just little details is what
is really going to make it look good. I’m going to add a little bit more detail here.
If this splash get a little too much, you can always erase parts of it. I’m going to
go ahead and turn this one, put it above the player. Move it a little bit. And you can
just keep adding to it until you get it the way you like it. And then what you can ahead
and do is save a copy as a jpeg and add it to the template which is what we are going
to do on the next tutorial. So say tuned. Hey that was easy. Thanks for watching. If
