    Two Questions About Custom Brushes

    Thanks. I already looked in Brusheezy, but I'll check the other ones you linked.

    Two Questions About Custom Brushes

    Here are some brushes I downloaded the other day. Some are better than others. For example, I'm not in love with the droplets—they don't look convincing to me. Also, many of these look good if they're very large, but lose a lot of detail when small. I'm basically looking for more of the...

    Two Questions About Custom Brushes

    I'm interested in downloading a set of brushes for various water effects such as splashes, sprays, spouts, garden hose streams, droplets, foam, etc. Two questions: On most websites where custom brushes are offered, they usually describe the package of brushes but they do not provide a preview...

    What is the best way to draw this row?

    Another way is to create the row of numbers using Microsoft Excel, which is tailor-made for easily creating this kind of grid. Then do a Copy>Paste from Excel into Photoshop.

    Specific Easy Fix-Arm

    @GeneGraphics, Excellent job! I was working on this for about an hour last night and found it to be quite difficult. I like what you did with the couch and the items behind it.

    Eyes ... and hot to achieve this eye reflection

    I went back to your original post (seems like forever, but it was only nine days ago) and you mention that this is part of some kind of game. I don't understand the game or what quality of realism in the eyes is required, but I still think that the eyes you have here are very good. Can you...

    Eyes ... and hot to achieve this eye reflection

    Personally, I think this last one you did is quite good. It looks pretty realistic and I do not get a "beady" impression at all. I made a few minor changes to see if I could reduce the beadiness. (But I'm not sure that I can draw eyes as well as you did here.) I blurred the hard edges of the...

    Radial metal brushing

    Once you've created your noise layer (or whatever it is that will be radially blurred), you then need to make a circular selection around the area to be blurred. That selection will define where the center is located. Once that selection is active, then do the radial blur. It doesn't need to be...

    Eyes ... and hot to achieve this eye reflection

    Yes. Here it is. If you're interested, I'm also attaching a tutorial on how to draw an eye. This is for actual drawing, not Photoshop, but it does a good job of explaining the different parts of the eye and their basic shapes. This guy "Proko" is very good. He has lots of tutorials, including...

    Eyes ... and hot to achieve this eye reflection

    For the past few months, I have been intensively teaching myself to draw the human figure (with paper and pencil, not Photoshop). I'm certainly no expert, but I have a few ideas for why the eyes you are trying to draw look "dead" to you. First, I opened a Levels adjustment on your eye to look...

    Radial metal brushing

    I'm not sure if I fully understand your question, but I'd like to make sure that you're aware of Radial Blur. It's similar to Motion Blur, which you mention above, but it blurs in a radial direction out from the center, just as you describe. Go to Filter>Blur>Radial Blur. There are several...

    Specific Removing a person

    Here's my try. This was a hard one. The first image is as-shot. The second image has a bit more contrast.

    How do I create these shadows that mimic depth/indentation?

    There are many ways to paint shadows. For covering large areas such as your example, here is one way. Create a new layer above your texture layer and fill it with black (or dark gray). Change the layer blend mode to Multiply. Add a layer mask to the black layer. Fill the layer mask entirely...

    Paid Generate one missing line of pixels

    Thanks. I just had one more idea. The original image looks like a photograph that has been pixellated. So I tried using a gaussian blur to un-pixellate it. I am definitely seeing things here that I didn't see before, but I still cannot solve the puzzle.

    Paid Generate one missing line of pixels

    If anybody is interested, I replaced the four shades of gray with different colors so that I could distinguish them better. I also separated each color on its own layer in the hope that a pattern would become apparent if I only looked at one color at a time. But after all that work, I cannot see...
