Painting Tutorial: Grass by MissNysha Painting Tutorial: Grass by MissNysha
Many people liked my grass in my latest wall "Through Golden Fields" [link] and boggled me with questions on how the hell I made it. XD So here is the tutorial they requested!

Feel free to ask me anything for clarification. ^_^

Once you read this through, and/or manage to make something, reward yourself with a cookie! (who doesn't like cookies?)
If you do happen to make something, I would like to see your work! :D

This is really hard for me for some reason. It must be because I am using a mouse.

I'm experimenting with this now, but for some reason Apply Image doesn't seem to produce the expected result: I tried making a new layer and then clicking on Apply Image, but the layer stays transparent, just how it's been created.

I've checked I haven't got anything selected and to not have transparency locked, but nothing seems out of order. Might it work differently in the version of PS you use? I have 5. 

Thanks for the tutorial!

I use CS5 now, but this tutorial was made on CS2, and the function remains the same. Just tried it again, and it worked fine. Hmm, maybe when the window pops up set the target layer to merged?

Yup, that seems to work! I'm not sure if I accidentally changed it last time I tried, but it does work now with the same file. Ta!

This really helped me! I was using SAI so there was a few complications, but thanks for uploading this!

You're welcome! :D Ah, I've only used SAI once, but because its painting features are generally 'creamier' than photoshop's I think I would probably paint each grass stroke rather than smudge them. But testing out several methods always helps too!

uuh, do you have to go back and forth or have a pressure sensitive tablet and stroke once?

PS: I don't like cookies.

MissNysha Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2011  Professional General Artist
Back and forth? It explains in the second paragraph at the top about how the pressure sensitivity of a tablet is key to making tapered strokes, which you make by stroking once in an upward direction.
