For the readers that are interested in art, Photoshop offers plenty of options for digital painting. Whether your painting is your “job” or simply want to draw for amusement only, or to study the drawing tools of Photoshop is extremely rewarding.


If you always want to become the professional of artwork painted but never spent much time to learn Photoshop, then this tutorial will help you get started as quickly and easily as possible.

1. Start with the tool Brush.


Brush (shortcut is B) is the most important tool of Photoshop. It will probably be the most complicated tool in this program that the beginners hardly ever use. There is a series of options on panel Brush, you will have to be accustomed to the pattern turns art on this panel. If you do not find the panel Brush, go to Window>Brushes to open the control panel.

CS6 allows users to select more than the tool Brush in the options panel on the screen . Here you can adjust the opacity, size and other options…



You will find many other options for the tool Brush by right-clicking on the workspace. For the purposes of this tutorial, we will avoid using complex Brush in the first picture, and mostly use the options panel from the shortcut menu (picture above).

2. Manual tool Brush:

Press Ctrl+Shift+N to create a new file. Take each step as instruction below in order to get a better understanding of how to use the available tool Brush .


This is a form of basic settings to understand how to work the Brush. Right-clicking to open the contact menu and selecting the first Brush, “Soft Round”, you can adjust the size of drawing with the top sliders (Size).


A stroke line will be drawn a black background that looks similar to this one.


Going to the option table above framework and setting the opacity to 50%.


Clicking and dragging your mouse to draw a line on the screen working stroke, draw lines later the same color, but fainted than the first one.



Right-clicking on the background of working screen to open Menu Context once again, this time , you will select the second option “Hard Round”

Setting the opacity as the set forth above, lines drawn will be “hardness” than the first type of brush. Customize each component in the options bar to experience different each shift.



Similarly, Opacity is like set Flow. Return set the Opacity of 100% and 50% Flow setting.


You will see the draw different lines at once.


Enlarging image, you will see no point stroke difference. With the stroke smoother Opacity Flow is also creating continuous images of drawings (circle). This difference sometimes makes users feel confused.


“Airbrush Mode” option is a pretty confusing. Nearly all recent versions of PS have this airbrush icon in the options panel. Click on it for us to learn the difference.



This option will create a drawing with “softness” wider.



3. Real drawing with Tablet.

We will still use the Brush to select, try on tablet graphics and the option in the rightmost “Tablet pressure controls size”.


One stroke painting started with a very small head and less blurr and gradually grow out.


There is one another option is “Tablet pressure controls opacity” would like to change the opacity of paint from light to darker.



Here is the application of the first line in the table set Brush with opaque paint in a variety of interesting ways.


And other stroke of drawing.





4. Digital painting time with Brush.

Instead of scanning an image drawn by hand, you can capture photos and use the brush tool to paint the picture so that the same image with ink drawing normally.


You should work in the best print resolution. Once finished sketches pictures, you can go to Image> Image Size to resize.


300 pixels /inch is a pretty standard print resolution. Expanding this image is to create a 10-inch wide-3000 pixel picture, with this size you can draw any image matching.


Create a color adjustment layer (adjustment) above the layer image. Customize any color or image how light is the most appropriate.


According to this instance, we will set the color is pink, change Blending Mode into Screen with the option Blend Mode.



Create a new layer to start drawing a picture of the class.


Select the Brush or Pen tool to draw pictures.


you have got a tablet, then this drawing either quickly or easily.


A single brush size will easily draw lines frame with different thicknesses.
To add color to the image, you should create a new layer (Ctrl + Shift+ N) and then create a group for it. Make sure the color component layer beneath the original drawing.


Fill ingredients combined with the brush tool helps quickly fill the picture area.


If you use multiple layers fill out, you will want to check “All Layers” on the right side of the option.


Add a new layer for each new color or only work on a single class – it depends on your preference.



Working with independent color layers will make it easier to edit than to admit the color fringing.



With a completely flat image without the ball, the image layer is still lack of “truth”. Flow reduced section and set the Opacity to normal, you can “beat up shadow” of the image.


While the picture is done with the mouse on a computer, the following picture is drawn for approximately 20 minutes.


Just add some points up against the bright spot is your picture become superb.
