Lol, I just realized that the title sounds funny..

Anyway, I need to make something that looks like a realistic crack or cracking hole in a tile floor, I want to have something growing out of it, probably a flower. What is the best way to do this? If it´s with a brush, does anyone have a link to a good crack brush, or if it´s better to use some kind of texture? or something else? :) / Vafann

On a serious note: i use actual crack images and do the job on them rather than use brushes, personal choice i no but hey.

Well, as for myself, I shall partake of nothing illegal. Crack on this forum!

If you don't find the brushes suitable, try looking for images. You can transform them. Do you remember Cindy's "Broken" image, woman with cracked back?

This is the img she provided:

Lol, thank you clare, I will try that too next time! I didn´t do too well with the brushes I think, I probably need more practice with them. :)

well if you've ever extracted caffeine from tea bags it's the same thing. just start out with cocoa leaves instead of tea bags... oh, oops, sorry, i guess i spent too much time in organic chem lab in college. those were the days...

if you don't want to extract the cracks with a mask or other extraction tool try to see if you can use levels or curves to turn it into a black & white image. some will work better than others, but if you can get a good black and white image you can use the multiply blending mode.
