How to use Brushes in Photoshop

How to use Brushes in PhotoshopHi there again fellas. When you want to create a dynamic work convey a sense of art painting in its subjects, use your wildest imagination. You know very well about Photoshoping something. You know the tools. You know how to use it wisely to get anything you want. Then use it! All you gotta do is just try and try any of possibilities you can found in your beautiful subject.

This dedicated tutorial is the main example of that style. Dedicated? Yupp, I dedicated again this to my old talented Indian photographer, Mr. Das. Hmmm... Santanu Das was asking me about how to create this particular creative background design as we can easily find in photographic studio.

This is what I'm talking about...

Beautiful model.. Ouchhh!!!

I'll let you in on one of the most effective and easily mastered techniques that I use to create striking, no need dynamic distortion of the subject - in this case I using the model suggested by him self, although this technique can be adapted for each objects that you want to feature your work, such as cars or trees.

Once you’ve picked the brushes you like and convenient to your need and created the Layer of each color you wanna paint, select the Brush tool (B) and apply separate paint strokes so that each color are on separate layers – and make sure you name each layer to find them easily.

For this exercise, I used around 7 different brush size diameter on about 15 layers, but you can use more or less depending on your image and the effect you’re after.

Do the same to scratch your other layer till you get the aim of this tut. These steps can take some time, especially at the beginning, but it’s the most important part of this visual creation of the background, so take all the time you need brotha'.
