    Custom Shape question

    I have a few questions on custom shapes. Ive seen alot of digital painters use these and are able to make pretty fast paintings with them...

    so I want to be able to use and manipulate custom shapes fast... to make compositions pretty quick

    1. Is there a way to fill in a selection with custom shapes?
    2. Can I use custom shapes without creating a new " shape layer " everytime one is used?
    3. Is there a fast way to apply custom shapes?


    throughout this thread sparth goes over how to paint with custom shapes... but his english is a little broken and he misses some explanations .

    sparth thread - http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...-custom-shapes

    here are some examples:

    are these just custom shapes that were made into custom brushes? I want the brushes to be crisp and sharp ( vector shapes ).

    When you've selected the Custom Shape tool, you can choose whether it creates a path, a shape layer (solid color with vector mask), or just pixels. It's in the option bar, at the upper left.

    Is there a particular reason you can't read the Photoshop Help and tutorials that comes with Photoshop?

    I LiveStream on Tuesdays and Thursdays and would be happy to do a demo for you on using the pen tool to create shapes, how to manipulate them, add/subtract to/from them and other fun tips and tricks.

    Let me know if you are interested. I've had requests for this before and was thinking of putting a YouTube video together or something.

    Cheers!
