.: Pen Tool Tutorial :. by turp .: Pen Tool Tutorial :. by turp
I'll probably end up editing this in the future after I get your input on what is and isn't understandable. Feel free to note me with any questions you may have, and I hope this is usefull (sp?). Thanks to ~amplifi3d and =Marcio for helping me out.

Oh yeah. Full view necessary unless you've got some kind of fettish for sea foam green.

It's rather large by the way...so those who's computers short circuit easily. Well, you might want to not click on the preview image :)

This is great, everytime when I try to vexel, I end up with something not much better than cutout.

I used photoshop cs to do this tutorial. It was very helpful and easy once I got the hang of it. On the "How to make Hair Tutorial" I had to use the "add anchor point tool" to get the curves to shape like strands of hair but once I did that, the rest was the same...

No pen tool?

plusnia Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2006
I have the pen tool, but it acts very .... glitchy. And I have a ton of options on PS6 that are missing that PS7 has. It would just make my life easier if I got off my butt and got PS7 XD

I believe my dial-up connection just curled up and died. :D

Very nice tut. I've never used the pen tool that way before so all of this is kinda new to me. Plus the layer count thing nearly made me spontaneously combust. XD But now I know what the folder thingy on the layers window is for, YAY.

This is by far the best tutorial I have ever seen for the pen tool. (I have obviously not seen all that have ever made). So far I have only reviewed it quickly but will have a closer look latter. Right now family and work take priority.

Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us. Iím going to add this to my very small and very selective list of favs and will be sure to pass it along to others looking for this type of information.

Please have a great day,

Barry
