Found an interesting option in this video. Start by creating a grid with the Rectangular Grid or Polar Grid tool. Click Object > Envelope Distort > Make with Mesh Add some perspective with the Effect > 3D > Rotate and adjust to your liking. Move the points from the Mesh grid (not your original grid) until you get the desired effect. Go back and tweak ...

There are some changes in color. Tts difficult to see with naked eyes but if you import you object to photoshop and use eyedroper you can see some color variations. How you can achieve this effect: Create the pattern(There are lots of ways to create this if you don't want to create this manually). You can change the color of upper and lower strips ...

This is possible to do. You just need to know a very rarely used feature*. First turn on transparency grid, so that you can observe the effect. Choose: View → Show Transparency Grid or hit Shift + Ctrl + D. Next make a primitive shape like a box to design the effect on (due to text grouping it is easier to design on something else first). In the ...

The bars in the pattern are actually not of exactly the same width. Some bars are slightly thicker, adding a darker mean shade to the image in that location. This way the picture is visible by just a slightly darker mean color (like 50% brightness for the bright regions and 52% brightness for the darker regions). You can do this in photoshop, if you start ...

You can do this in Photoshop with custom brush you need to define (rectangle shape) and then play with the settings (remember that "roundness" in this case will be thickness of the shape. This is what you could get. In illustrator the easiest way (for me) would be do create few different patterns, fill objects with them, then expand and multiply and ...

Create Brush with symbols you want shown Select brush you created and edit its settings Edit the brush tip shape, add spacing, change the angle Edit shape dynamics. Make the size jitter, put min amount of size. Also make the angle jitter. Make sure it scatters (on both axis). That way on one click you get lots of the symbols in random places. ...

Generally speaking, you only want to paint on a photo as a last resort. Ideally, you would work on other layers, and use masks and blends and opacity to combine those layers with the photo layer into the result you want. Starting with this original: … one way to wash out the colors is to blend it with an inverted version of the same photo: open the ...

The shape is cut into 2 and the lower part is given a gradient to darker color. Here is a example showing the final result and then the shape outlines: One can further subside to pieces to get more control over the effect. Also you can use lighter parts in the gradient to make it more visible. Bevel is a good name for this.

I created this example as per the settings below. Essentially a large faint drop shadow with a smaller but darker drop shadow over the top.

Go to work with the Clone Stamp to build up the flowers. Have them on their own layer using Clone Stamp All Layers. Then duplicate it, blur it, mask parts to remove the blur. Duplicate again, mask other parts... repeat. In this case they probably also did some blurring of a grey, yellow, and brown overlay (colors chosen to match the outfits). Using this ...

The rippling filter acts on the current layer. Move your selection to its own layer. Select the desired area Ctrl / Cmd + C Exit -> Paste As -> New Layer Make sure that layer is selected when you run the filter.

I think that particular image may have been generated by a 3D application. Which one is your choice. Illustrator can do this to a degree, but it won't easily create the depth of the bump texture. You have to kind of fake it. Draw a couple random paths.... Select both paths and choose Object > Blend > Make from the menu. Then choose Object > ...

Hum... I basicly see: 1) Grayscale image. You can crop the black and white values using levels. Normally you just adjust it enough so the graph touches the borders, but in this case you need to move that graph further away. 2) Change the blend mode to multiply and use whichever color you need in a layer or background below it. The specifics would depend ...

The best way to make the droplets to stand out is to add new ones to your picture and exaggerate that effect. You can find a droplet or condensation image online, ideally grayscale, and apply it to your yellow tank using some layer mask (Gimp Layer mask) and blending modes. You can also colorize the droplets any way you want. Example in Photoshop (Should ...

Well, if I got your question right, it's a pretty simple principle: Create a layer with a gray background Create a blank layer over it Use the Elliptical Marquee Tool to create an ellipse and fill it with black (step 1 in image) Add a Gaussian Blur that looks just right (step 2 in image) Take the Rectangular Marquee Tool and delete half of the ellipse (...

Just cut the shape into 2, or expand it and merge the pieces. It a bit similar to the question about art brush overlap. cut the line expand use shape builder to isolate the overlap. Or you can use multiple splitted segments as a brush they also overlap as described in the linked post. IN the oppsote case just group them and enable

There are plenty of ways to do this, the easiest way is probably to create a layer mask and use a rough chalk brush or something similar. My approach Do a rough cut with the polygonal lasso, or any tool of your choice. Add a layer mask to your layer. You find it in the bottom right corner. Then use a rough paintbrush with black color, to draw around the ...

I've never used sketch before, however I think it would be the same method as Photoshop too. So what I can see from the initial picture that you provided is that you're trying to create a duplicated image with only certain parts showing? Here's how I'd do it in Photoshop. you can adapt this to fit your needs. First of all I'd duplicate the original image....

Here's a quick tut. Create background with darker color then desired font. I used black. The write with chosen font what you want. Add stroke, I've chosen 4pt. Copy text, paste in place (shift+ctrl"cmd"+v). Remove stroke and change color to "shadowy" (20K in my case). Paste text again. remove stroke, change to white and move it up and left "a notch"...

OK, I've figured it out. First, alt+click on the stopwatch icon next to the layer's value you want to add an expression – in my case, the level of Mosaic horiztonal blocks and level of vertical blocks. I added an additional adjustment layer, and change the values to go from 100 to 0 with new keyframes, instead of 0 to 100. The higher the number of blocks, ...

You define the shape which you want to have cut out as a vector shape, and tell your print shop that you want that cut out. They send your vector path out to a die-maker (you'll need to pay for this, probably in advance) to have a die made. They'll then use the die on the printed piece.

There's certainly a few steps missing in your process. Doing this from scratch requires some skills and there's probably 100 ways to get to that result. Photographers use all sort of basic filters (or whatever they call it) that are not so special. It helps when the photo already has some effect from the start and good subjects too. A photographer could ...

The practice of drawing on frames of a film is called Rotoscoping. Specifically, manually altering each frame of a video to include previously absent visuals. This is not only used for things like drawing on film, but special effects as well.

You won't find any "automatic" melting/dripping effects. You need to learn to make your own by matching 2 or more pictures together, and using layers masks (or whatever it's called in Gimp.) The trick to show skin as if it was peeled off or removed somehow is to use a picture with bones, and the original picture. You can also use different bones and stick ...

What you have shown uses only three things, Smart Objects (you may not need it depending on how complex the design is) , Perspective and Distort , both found in the Transform menu (Ctrl + T). You mentioned your design isn't as clear, that depends on the resolution of the distorted layer and the level of distortion. This isn't quite something you nail the ...

Maybe not quite as versatile as the Pattern tool, but the Egg-Bot Extensions have a hatch fill tool.
