This Premium Tutorial is Filled with Creative Tips
Photoshop cannot replicate the spontaneity of a paint splash or an ink splatter; and you won't find a happy accident tool – well not yet anyway! In the first part of this tutorial you'll be encouraged to step away from your screen, then get down and dirty to create your own textures.
Once digitized, you'll combine these real-world scans with some stock images to create an edgy feel that Photoshop alone would be hard-pressed to achieve. We'll also briefly touch on how Illustrator's paths can be utilized to make a cool Custom Shape library.
I've included all the texture files in the download, but why not have a go at making your own – that way you'll inject individual flair into your work – as well as have fun!
