Painting Patterns

[♪music♪] [Russell Preston Brown in...] [The Russell Brown Show - Power Tips] I've got a hunch that this next tip and technique is something you've never seen before, and of course, it's here inside of Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended. Now in this project, I'm going to create a tiled pattern and apply it to an image. Let's give it a try. So here I have a blank document--it's just a simple blank, white document-- and I've selected a paintbrush here and I have a paintbrush set to a 100% Opacity and I have it filled with green. For this particular project, I want to create dots and I want to create a pattern of dots. Okay, now all I do is go up here to my 3D menu and down here to New Tiled Painting, right here. It will now of course turn this flat 2D document into a 3D document that when I paint on it, it will create a pattern--check it out. I'm going to paint right here on the image, just like that. I'm going to create some dots. And of course, it instantly creates all of the other dots to create this pattern. I can go through again and start to create multiple dots across my image, and it repeats the pattern just like that. It's easy. Okay, now how do I apply this? I'm going to do a Select All-Command-A on the Macintosh or Control-A on the PC, then go up to my Edit menu and down here to Define Pattern, right here. Let's name this Dots, just like that, and click OK. Now I can apply this, and of course, let's apply it to a dinosaur. What could be better? So of course, here inside of Photoshop CS4 Extended, you can paint directly on 3D objects, so let's give it a try. I'm going select this tool--my Pattern Stamp tool right there-- and make sure that I'veselected my pattern here, from the fly-out menu here in the Options bar. And you'll also notice that I have my Mode set to Multiply because I want to multiply this pattern onto the surface of the dinosaur and not have the white show--just have the colored dots appear on the dinosaur. Okay. Now let's give it a try. I'm going to paint right on the dinosaur, and there are the dots. The pattern of dots then appears here on my model, and of course, all I have to do is select my 3D Rotate tool right here, and since this is a 3D model, I can rotate this around and continue to paint on the other side. And of course, the pattern will of course tile perfectly around the shape of my 3D object. There you have it--the unusual, the crazy--you saw it here on the Russell Brown show--Painting with Tiled Patterns. [♪music♪] []
