Hi. My name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to draw shards of glass in Photoshop. So I've got a Tablet Pen here. I'm just going to show you the basic outlines of what shards of glass would look like with two tools. And I'm going to use the paint brush tool and I'm also going to use the free form pen tool. And the free form pen tool isn't going to be the first option that you select, in fact it's going to be the pen tool, and you can use the pen tool to do this, but I'm going to use the free form because it's slightly more flexible as far as making a shape. So this is how I'm going to start. And if you've seen broken glass before, you know it's got like a jaggedy edge. It's usually pretty sharp and it's really kind of awkwardly kind of cut and positioned. So I'm just going to make kind of a jaggedy shape like that. And you know you can do other ones too just so you get the broken glass kind of feeling and you know like that. OK. So, here I've got my, I'll add one more piece. here I've got my broken glass. And now what I'm going to do is just add some dimension to it. And the cool thing about Photoshop is it has the free form pen tool. And I don't think Illustrator does and that's pretty much why I'm using it in this particular instance, because it'll make a nice jaggedy kind of line that I'm looking for. And then we'll just add a little bit more dimension to your shards, so that it looks, feels like, and one more. And there you have your broken glass. My name is Alex Cecilio and this is how you draw broken glass in Photoshop. Thank you.
