100% View of the birches in this Picture of mine
Well... when you hit the download button, that is
asked me, how I did the leaves. Well, cant recall the exact way... only that there were aproximatly 3 Layers for the leaves.
First I created a custom brush out of birch-tree-stock (But you can use the standard photoshop leaf brush, too) Spacing were set to something between 50 % and 70%.
- Brushsize to pen pressure. No minimum size
- angel jitter: 25 - 50 %, control set to direction
- roundness jitter: 100 % no controls
- scattering on both axes
- opacity jitter 25 % maybe...
- low brigthness jitter
Then I painted in 3 layers of color - dark green/blue, middle green and light green/yellow
The layermodes I cant recall. But light were proberly set to multiply ore linear light (I like those settings^^)
To get the leafy feeling I used the "unsharpen mask" filter.
Thats it. More ore less. realy hope I can do these trees again.
