Re: PS Graphics - Starting from scratch

I live in North Carolina so I see alot of mountains. I decided to paint a pic of my natural surroundings. I used the painting tools and brushes for actually "painting" for a change. This was an interesting challenge, pulling myself away from using those tools for just retouching.

Re: PS Graphics - Starting from scratch

Have you ever had one of those ideas that you just can't shake? Well this is it for me. lol

In the first I used sky and grass patterns blended with a mask. The trees are shapes with a 'spiky bush' pattern which I gave shadows. The sun and sky texture, was a filter - I think-I don't really remember.

For the second one I simply started out with three colored stripes and twirled them at 500. The middle bit was a kaleidoscope (Medhi) I masked into the 'twirl'. The black cracks is yet another pattern.

I'm curious how far I can take this. ( I tried to start a new thread but I didn't appear to have permission )
