What techniques would you use for drawing rice grains in Photoshop?

Does "very carefully" count as an answer? This seems very specific. You might want to ask a question about a technique rather than something so specific as drawing grains of rice. – MikeNGarrett Jan 25 '11 at 19:38

  1. Take a photo of some rice. Alternately, throw some rice on your scanner and scan it.
  2. Open the image.
  3. Trace it.

Actually, I used the pen tool and layer styles. – Moshe Jan 26 '11 at 14:31
