In this lesson we will draw in cells.
Probably each of you at school liked to draw on the desk, on a piece of paper in a cage, some drawings, inscriptions, logos of famous musical performers, football teams and much, much more!
So, I, too, is no exception, and I also like to draw in notebooks in a cage, just drawing lines across the cells to make something beautiful, understandable, and most importantly, to make it beautiful.
Recently, sitting at the next drawing, I had the idea to implement the drawing in Photoshop!
As an example, I drew a notebook logo of the music group “Aria”. Here’s what I got:
As can be seen from the figure, I drew the logo exactly in the boxes. Before drawing it, I copied the logo from the CD of this group. Not immediately, of course, it worked out, but I quickly adapted.
And so, now let’s try to implement this inscription in Photoshop.
Step 1. Create a new document. It is desirable to introduce more dimensions, so that there are more cells, and the more, the more convenient it is for you to draw.
Step 2. Now press the following key combination – “Ctrl +’ ”(on the English layout). The document will appear cells:
Step 3. Next, take the tool with which we will draw the entire lesson – Polygonal Lasso (Polygon) and draw the letter “A” in the cells:
Now on the new layer, fill this selection with black color and cut a small area in the middle:
Again on the new layer we draw the letter “P”:
And we repeat the same operations on the other letters:
And that’s what we end up with:
To remove cells, click back Ctrl + ’. For convenience, you can rename the layers with letters by double clicking on the layer with the letter:
Now for the letter “P”, apply a stroke style: double-click on the layer with this letter and select at the bottom Stroke (Stroke).
Do the same for the letter “I.” And also on the “I” separate the tail. To do this, take the tool Line Tool (Line), using these settings:
and draw in the tail area 2 lines of white color on the layer with the letter “I”. Like this:
Well, in principle, that’s all! Now you can be glad that you drew what you drew (of course, another picture) all this time by hand.
The picture can be used anywhere, for example, as a tattoo:
Or just a beautiful lettering:
I personally often like to draw the following inscription on a piece of paper:
Maybe someone else has already invented this typeface, but such pointed letters just occurred to me.
