Photoshop cannot replicate the spontaneity of a paint splash or an ink splatter. In the first part of this Tuts+ Premium tutorial by author Mark Mayers, you'll be encouraged to step away from your screen and get down and dirty to create your own textures. Once these are digitized, you'll combine them with model photography (thanks to Bekki Werren) to create a unique illustration that Photoshop alone would be hard-pressed to achieve. We'll also briefly touch on how Illustrator can be utilized to make Custom Shapes and Pattern Fills. This tutorial is available exclusively to Tuts+ Premium Members.
