Easy Water in Photoshop by WindieDragon Easy Water in Photoshop by WindieDragon
My first ever tutorial. I found a neat way to make water in Photoshop, completely by accident, and figured I'd share my findings with the rest of DA. If you use it, post a link because I'll be wondering how it came out for you :).

(And if you fav it I'll love you forever *coughhintcough*)

(And if you critique this I'll love you even more. [link] I already have the sky, water, and clouds figured out so you don't have to say anything about that if you don't want to. But if you see any way I can make this better, please let me know.)

If you like dragons or Pokemon, you may wanna check out the rest of my gallery :). I also have a neat Growlmon in there too, along with some Sonic-related stuff.

I think this is more of an awesome grass tutorial, instead of water, lol. Awesome brush!

I guess it could be a grass tutorial, I'm not sure how the settings would look on greens though ^^;.

wow that worked out great! that's great for a picture overhead of open ocean. i suppose if you change the angle of the brush tip shape it could look like its from another angle. im not sure about that, im going to try it right now though.
thanks, +fav this tutorial was actually really useful.

I agree. I think if you blur it right and make it red, you could make some sweet lava with this. I have yet to try that out. Your avvy reminds me of Sonic R. I miss that game.

This is pretty good. Could it possibly work out for lava as well? :hmm:

Thanks, but his wing is a little too smudged. I probably over did it with the smudge tool. ^^;

that's what I made it in. but if you want to get technical, you could actually use it for any prgram, as long as it has that type of brush.
