This is post for all the Photoshop junkies. I’ve found it very rewarding to create my own textures and brushes for my designs. I want to share some of the details about using watercolor for a technique.
Cold Press Illustration Board or Watercolor paper, brushes and water colors
Color – Add water on the paper and drop in some color. Control the splashes of color by moving the paper around or with the brush.
Manipulate the amount of water and move it around the paper. Thin layers of ink create great layers of splash. Before adding another layer of color, let it dry. Mix up the color. Let the different colors flow freely around the paper.
Create your own photos, your art, or your textures from scratch. Its fun to create these kind of projects and experiment with different styles. In Photoshop use it as a layer with the blending mode. Now we have our own textures and they can be used for any illustration.
