Hour 19. Creating Art from Scratch > Task: Adding Ribs to Your Umbrella

Task: Adding Ribs to Your Umbrella

With the Pencil tool, it’s easy to add ribs to your umbrella.

1.
With the umbrella.psd file open, click the Pencil tool.

2.
Create a new layer above the others.

3.
Set the foreground color to one that’s slightly lighter than the umbrella color, such as a light yellow or light blue.

4.
Select the Hard Round brush tip style from the list, set the tip size to 3 pixels, and draw ribs from the top of the umbrella to each of its points. The result is a rather whimsical rendition of an umbrella in the rain, shown in Figure 19.13.

Figure 19.13. The final version of our umbrella.


5.
Save and close the image file.
