    Time lapse in duplicated window for digital drawing

    I am trying to make a time lapse of my drawing without all the annoying zooming in and out that happens if I recorded the original window. Basically I duplicate the window that I am drawing in by going to window - arrange - new window for and then the name of the current project. I move the...

    Filling a stroke with an image

    Hello, I'm new to the forum. I hope this is the right place to ask "how do I " questions. I've tried googling, but perhaps I'm not hitting on the right search words. I am trying to make a stroke, in this case of a triangle using the polygon tool, with a white "stroke line" and a transparent...

    Having trouble with my brush stroke being jagged looking?

    Hello, I've been searching for a while now to resolve an issue with my stroke being jagged/pixelated looking. I figured it was my brush spacing but I constantly try to turn it from 25% to 1% and it does nothing. I only recently started having this issue. What I'll do is I'll use a regular solid...

    Getting ridges on lines. Not sure why.

    So after my last thing about grids/guides, I managed to complete what I was doing. After completing it, I noticed some lines were not straight, sharp. I'm using CS3 and those boxes were created, specifically those lines, via stroke in blending options. I used a shape tool to make the square...

    How to create a brush that becomes more porous/distressed on lighter strokes?

    I hope you will bear with me a little, since I'm not entirely sure how to phrase what I'm asking for. I know how to use dual brushes to create some nice effects, but I am not going for dual-brush with pen pressure for transfer. What I want is a brush that gets more distressed/porous looking...

    3D Steam City

    In this exercise I tried to learn to construct the pipes with Bezier curves. The handles of the tool are quite different from Photoshop's pen tool, and it's much more difficult to work with it in the 3D space. But once you have a "path" of your pipe around your object, you can fill the stroke...

    Sometimes stroke produces outline, sometimes not.

    I like a 4-pixel black rule around photographs. Unfortunately, I don't always get one. Here are the settings in the stroke dialog box: 1. Select/highlight the background layer. 2. Press CTRL+A. 3. Go to Edit>Stroke 4. Set width to 4 pixels. 5. Foreground color is black. 6. Location is INSIDE...

    Lazy Nezumi Pro

    Not sure if anybody has come across this before, but I'm actually amazed at what it can do to your brush stroke. Only started playing around with it and it's got plenty of features to play around with. Image below is me writing my name with a normal brush, as you can see it's not the best, but...
