Broken Glass Tutorial

By AbbeyMarie
What you will need:
Photoshop 7 or higher
Intermediate to advanced knowledge in Photoshop
Broken glass: Cracked Glass Texture III
Brush 1: Speck Brushes
Brush 2: Explosion Debris Brushes or

This effect could probably be replicated in other image editing programs, but I am afraid I only use PS so I can't really answer any questions about how to do it in any other program. I am also on a PC not a Mac - so keep that in mind.

Notice anything wrong or confusing PLEASE TELL ME!


Background: Elandria

Thank you for the DD!

Wow, thanks for sharing!! Those steps really make something so complex-looking quite simple. I hope I can use it in an artwork soon! Thanks again! :heart:

There is a newly improved tutorial here: How to Create a Broken Glass Effect in Photoshop

You can still use the same texture I used in this version as well, so don't worry about the premium resources used!
