Create realistic effects with custom Photoshop brushes

One of the best ways to push your boundaries using Adobe Photoshop is to take the time to explore what all the sliders, buttons, and menus can do. This week Bert takes us through the various steps toward creating realistic pepper from scratch. He starts out by drawing a few simple shapes and, after playing with a few settings, he is able to create an interesting pattern and build a brush with it. Once Bert paints a few layers with this brush and builds up the colors, you’ll start to see how you can create practically anything with the Photoshop brushes.
