Hello, my name is Traci Parrish and I'm going to show you different ways that you can draw using Photoshop. I've opened a document, and I'm going to walk some of the tools we have here in Photoshop that you can use to draw with. First, this is painter's tool. I'm selecting the brush. If you click up here in the tool bar, a drop down menu gives you all of these options for different styles. There's round brushes, feathered brushes, brushes that looks like shapes, squatters, all sorts of things that you can use for different effects. I've selected a feathered brush, I'm using a tablet which allows me to draw a lot looser like you would with a pencil. But, you can also draw using your mouse, it's just going to be a little more difficult. By clicking and dragging, you can see it makes lines using the brush that you've selected. You can change the size of the brush or tool then change the look of the lines that you draw. There are hundreds of options with the brush tool. There's also pencil tool. Pencil tool is very simple. You can adjust the size and it basically gives you a very, very simple black line like a pencil. It's very good for sketching small images or to figure placement another substance. We can also use the shape tool to make rectangles and squares. You can use these shapes to build pictures and images. The pen tool allows you to make shapes defined by points. By clicking, you make a point. Click in another area and it connects the two points. To make a curve, make a point, click on another point and drag. This creates a curve. We can move them around and make different shapes. Photoshop also has other tools like the stamp tool which allows you to fill in shapes, make different effects. This palette allows you to pick a pattern style by drawing, instead of a line, you get your pattern. You can also adjust the brush and get more areas. Using all these tools, you have hundreds of options that you can sketch, draw and render using Photoshop. And those are ways that you can draw using Photoshop.
