If you remember from last time; Index painting involves using "dirty" tools (tools which lay multiple colors at once) within a pre-defined indexed palette. Photoshop doesn't inherently allow for this behavior. If you index an image in Photoshop all of the "dirty" tools become locked or reduce their functionality to not be dirty. No more soft brushes, smudges, gradients, etc. HD Index Painting Why "HD?" You can download the PSD used to create the following gifs HERE So what can it do? Setup The first thing you'll want to do is make sure your eyedropper tool is set to sample "current and below." Second thing you'll want to do is make sure you have your dither patterns defined. That's pretty much all the settings you'll need to change actually. Basic Layer Stack This is where all the magic happens. Paint layer This is the layer you are actually painting on when you pixel. This layer is filled with a dither pattern representing various percentages of dither superimposed. Examples: Take-Aways: Related:  TUTORIAL

ProductBio - Sustainable Procurement Worldbuilding with Maps Concept artist Lorin Wood has launched a new group blog called "Nuthin' but Worlds," about concept art and worldbuilding, an offshoot of his successful "Nuthin' but Mech" blog and books. I'm a contributor, and here is what I contributed for my first post: For me, making a map is the best stimulant for building worlds and telling stories. But there are many kinds of maps. Physical geography map, with emphasis on landform relief. Seafloor relief, shown in perspective, with the island lifted up to show the caves. Expedition route map. Another route map showing a close-up section of the eastern coastline. Antique maps are more convincing if they're made with antique tools. Here's a close-up of the map above to show the graded hatching of the mountain reliefs, typical of engraved maps of the 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries. Here's a hand-drawn and hand-lettered city map drawn in ink, with a flourished title block and a "rubber stamp" suggesting its provenance in a museum collection.

Back in June I quit my job in Singapore and moved to San Francisco to study at the Safehouse Atelier, then realized how expensive San Francisco is...and went back to Maine while I did some job interviews and more freelance work, and then in February moved [back] to Shanghai…I need to stop moving so much.

Introduction to Zbrush | Sculpt Cookie ZBrush is THE digital sculpting application that first revolutionized the concept of ‘sculpting’ in the computer.
