    Paths are a very underused feature of photoshop. This is a great example of how handy they are, I use a technique like this all the time.
    Thanks a bunch, Main Loop

    neat! though does this work with only that kind of perspective, or all kinds of perspectives?

    Great dude, I was just messing with the pen tool as a perspective device the other day - this has given me a bunch of ideas.

    Say, mind if I link to this puppy in the Peer Project? (Link in sig)

    Paths is a great idea. I had been doing something similar with layers.

    I heard an interesting idea tonight on Deke McClelland's Martini Hour 017 with Bert Monroy as guest.

    He uses Illustrator to layout much of his work first, because of the giant off-document workspace area available.

    Actually, since you can overextend paths in Photoshop too, I'm not sure I see why Monroy initially goes into Illustrator for that after all

    If I remember correctly when watching one of the Massive Black videos I noticed some perspective custom brushes. Anybody know where I can find some of those?
