Feature Preview: Create splash stock

There are few things in the world that represent more fun more than splashes of paint. They add colour and action to any scene and are great to experiment with in design. Although Photoshop is capable of creating amazing effects, the physical nature of the real world can produce beautiful effects in an instant that would require hours to reproduce digitally. So sometimes you need to get out from behind the monitor and get your hands messy to create a truly amazing work of digital art. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to throw paint like a pro and capture it in-camera. Then we will show you how to process those images in Photoshop, so you can add colour splashes to your own designs. It’s a bit messy, but with a little practice, some time and lots of paint, you’ll have a collection of paint splashes to use in any project. To get you started, we’ve provided 17 images of various paint splashes, which you’ll find in the resource pack.
