    You can rotate by going to free transform, just make sure you have the shape you want to rotate on a seperate layer.

    Thanks for that!

    I use to do like this:

    Great technique Mr. Sparth! Kinda makes me feel like I'm using Alchemy... but better cause I have more control. Need to practice!!

    thanks all!
    i'm glad you're finding this technique useful. i've seen several awesome artworks popping here and there with it, and it's extremely fun and exciting seeing what peeps do with it.

    speaking of Alchemy, i had a sudden urge to give it a try with a new fun semi-serious style i've been experimenting with.
    free sketchworks done in Alchemy without constraints, then brought into photoshop cw5 for color passes. i did quite a few that i'm going to post here.

    it's a bit of a side thing from custom shapes, but it's healthy experimenting in other directions, even though custom shapes are now fully belonging to my workflow at a point or another.

    Haha, I was wondering who the new guy on sijun was with such a cool style. Love these, they remind me a bit of traced vector art.
