Brick Tutorial

Published:

By request, here is the basic idea of how I painted the brick in "Solace". The mere painting of the bricks is very intuitive and random. The messier it is, the better...to a point, of course. But, I threw in a few other techniques, like the corner shadows, the light beam, and the use of channel masks, so that the tutorial would be a little more informative overall. Unfortunately, I have no idea how well these techniques will translate into other versions of Photoshop. I hope they're not too terribly different.

I love this but sadly, GIMP does not have a few things used here. :XD:

I actually found that one of my blood spatter brushes given a slight "jitter" made a good substitute for the missing "texture" step. :D (If that's the step you were missing)

Ah. Sorry to hear that. Gimp is good, but I do miss some of the Photoshop features. Hope you can figure out a way to do it anyhow.
