The pen tool is possibly my favourite photoshop tool. For years i was mistakenly using masks or lasso too to make selections. One mastered the pen tool opens up an extra element of accuracy to selections. Basically if you don’t know how touse the pen tool, you don’t know anything about photoshop.
As a design and retro pixel art geek I created this image. The simplicity of the Photoshop icon with a strong solid colour contrast perfectly.
The pixelation when enlarged, for me adds to the appeal of these art prints. Areas of the icon allow the colour of the background through just slightly. This helps blend the icon nicely and gives a more aesthetic, balanced feel.
