grass tutorial by jerry8448 grass tutorial by jerry8448
A couple of people have asked me how I paint grass, one of them just recently. It's really quite simple, so I put together a quick little tutorial. Hopefully it'll be of use to some of you out there... ;)

For your information: I use Photosop Elements 7 and a brush set, which you can download from dA's leventep: [link] (there's a link in one of his journal entries)

I don't like using custom grass brushes like the ones Photoshop comes with, as anybody remotely familiar with photoshop will be able to recognize the pattern later on.

Okay, so thank you just won't do!
This technique has pretty much saved my sanity. Not only when it comes to grass but also fur! So thank you!
You are truly an amazing artist!

Its much better thank you :D

Also I'd like to mention that its possible to do this in other programs. I did it in chibi paint on the Broekaki :)

Thanks again!

Nice work! But I wouldn't have used the airbrush-pen. Try using a brush with hard edges. That should help ;)

This was a very helpful tutorial. Easy to follow and I think I've finally mastered how to color/draw grass (and it actually looks like grass O.O) lol Great job again! : D

What were the brush settings you used for this? It seems to blend really nice for you.

I don't remember exactly, but probably around 50% opacity. And pen pressure was definitely turned on :)
