Blending Tutorial


1.  After initial placement of colors and sketching.  There are two ways I use, to blend in Photoshop, The SMUDGE TOOL and the SOFT ROUND BRUSH.

  1. Each technique has it’s own looks, depending on the type of brush, used with the SMUDGE TOOL, and PAINT BRUSH TOOL.

3.  Make sure to paint according to the direction in which the object flows.  For example, use circular motions when blending a sphere.

4.  REMEMBER:  A blend may look sloppy if the color values did not go together in the first place.
