Would like to talk with you about using this drawing on the front of a spec book for our website. And to see if you would add the bodies of both a 16 year old boy with a sword and a ten year old boy -- looking into the tunnel (their backs to us), having just arrived.  Carolyn Johnston  cjohnston@innersightpictures.com

I love how you can suggest the presence of water and cobwebs with light-colored brush strokes...

Looks great. Really creates a good damp and creepy atmosphere.

Do you have a sketchvid or some process/layers you can show? Because I want to learn your secret. Fantastic, as always, man!

Secrets? Well, let's see. Eating a lot of fish can help.
Ok, no secrets...I was just experimenting with the "custom shapes" functionality in photoshop, made some stamps of skulls and wanted to use them.
Here's a link to some layers I made that show the process.

Basically, because it was just an experiment, I was working looser than usual. I'm pretty happy with the results and the time it took, and If I have my way I'll try to work loose in the future too, because it's so much more enjoyable than trying to draw every little f*cking thing.

I like fish. Salmon mostly.

I'm a little unfamiliar with the custom shapes feature, is that new in CS5? I'll need to look a little more into it. If it does what you say it does, then it's certainly work working into a workflow.
Where do I find the Custom Shapes feature?



BTW, this is completely random, but you need to check out a music group called Escala. Pure awesome.

I thought Custom Shapes was a CS 5 thing, but CS2 has it too!
Basically, take an image, reduce it to black/white. Make a mask out of this so you can make a selection of it. With the selection active, go into Paths and pick "Create Work Path". With that path layer selected, go to Edit>Define Custom Shape. Now you have a new shape available when you use the custom shape tool (which is down by the rectangle/circle/line tools on the toolbar.

Ohhh, okay. So it's a stamp and not a brush. Gotcha!

Yar. The benefit is that it can be scaled up indefinitely without getting blurry.
