Hi my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a graphic artist and I'm going to show you how to do ribbons with folds in it in Photoshop. So I'm actually going to use the Paintbrush tool which is on the left right here and I'm just going to, the easiest way to start a ribbon is really to do something like this, especially when it has folds in it and the reason is because then when you are making the second part of your ribbon, well it depends on how you want your ribbon to be folded in the first place. So for example like alright, so right now it doesn't really look like much but what we're actually going to do is I'm actually going to erase this line right here and redraw it. Okay, so the reason I'm even using the Paintbrush tool in the first place is because it's really easy to erase it especially when you are making corrections like so to make the folded part of the ribbon. And if you can you actually probably want a smaller eraser like 7 or 6 points. And so if you haven't seen a folded ribbon before, it's kind of the same thing as curly hair where it's got this, when it curls, you're going to see both sides of the ribbon when it's folded like so. So this will just help you to get that illusion. And I want to make sure that this looks right, there. My name is Alex and this is how you create a folded ribbon in Photoshop. Thank you.
