I love this technique!
But I have a question. Is it possible to rotate the shapes while you place them? If you hold down the spacebar you can move around and if you hold down the modifier keys you can scale from center or corner, but I can't seem to find a modifier for rotation.
Anyone have any tips? Other than doing free transform on the entire layer afterwards I mean.

love your work and i find it really inspiring! but I have to say that just saying thanks for posting it all seems a bit on the lame side, so i went out and bought "Structura 1 and 2" as a more serious attempt at a thank you, enjoy the next royalty cheque and have a beer on me mate, and thanks a bunch for posting (there i said it anyhow!) ha ha ha!
favorites if you are interested are the dune images, I have always found the Dune books a great source of Ideas even the film. Also the Assassins creed environments are really interesting.
Book 2 I think my favorites would be the how I made it section at the back with the space museum and also the atmosphere you managed to put into "The Wreck" on page 115, I like the light and the sense of abandonment its really cool, well done.
all the best for the future projects mate.

you can have orientation defined by direction, ie by dragging your pen in different directions you ccan define how the shape is rotated.
love this thread, keep it alive!

I still dont understand completely... I know how to make a custom shape and use the custom shape... but how do you get so many tiny shapes out? doesnt it create a new layer each time? How do you get it to go in different directions fast without having to transform each shape? is there a way to lasso and fill? The technique used wasnt really explained that well ;/

Here is the process I use to create custom shapes.
1. grab a really textured image of rocks or something from nature.
2. Do the whole black and white contrast thing.. using either the levels or using the cutout filter. may have to dig into the controls to get a good black and white.
3.Select the black part of the image.
4.Open the Paths tab, and on the right drop down menu... select Make Path..
5. Type in 2.0 or whatever you find works for you.. 1.0 usually takes a while.
6. With that selected, go over to the Edit menu...drop down to where it says Define Custom shape. Should not be greyed out.
7. Click that and it should pop up and window and you can name the new shape.
1. To use these and get the tiny shapes working.. makes sure that when you drop these custom shapes.. that it is only dropping pixels and not paths.. there are a few buttons at the top that allow this.. play around with them. I can't remember offhand which one does what.
2. Next.. grab a shape and start throwing down.. you'll get the hang of it..

Neat stuff! Never even new custom shapes existed. Gave it a go, posted below. I feel like it has the ability to turn into an overly busy image very quickly. I should try painting over the "skeleton" to knock back more areas and create more negative space and areas where the detail isn't so strong. Thanks Chawdog for breaking it down like that. Anyone not sure what to do after Chawdog's explanation, in the toolbar is a shape, hold it to see the other tool options and a little blob shape tool at the bottom is the "custom shape tool" you can then select your new shape and start applying with that tool.
