Hi. I've been studying some of the enviros, concept arts and speedpaints, and I've noticed that they usually have strong, straight parts. How do they make this? Do they use polygons and then paint in it? I tried it, but it looks too concentrated on the edge part, losing that rough-yet-true feel. Are they preset shapes? Custom brushes? Or is it just really great hand control? I tried the Shift+click method but it only works vertically and horizontally.
press your stylus at the starting point, hold down shift and then press on the end point. It will create a straight line.
"Astronomy offers an aesthetic indulgence not duplicated in any other field. This is not an academic or hypothetical attraction and should require no apologies, for the beauty to be found in the skies has been universally appreciated for unrecorded centuries."
I tried it again and...wow, it does work. I thought it was just horizontal and vertical, but I found out I had to have a paint in before I click on the second direction. The reason why it didn't work was because I had my brush set to pen pressure and I apparently don't press it enough. Duh.
Also for straight lined block shapes in Photoshop you can always do a vector shape in pen tool, add a new layer and make it a clipping mask (right click on top of the layer, choose "Create Clipping Mask"). Probably not used for what you mean but a neat trick anyway.
