Splatter

Just a quick tutorial to start the new year. I needed a splatter for an illustration. After a quick check on my hard-drive and google images I decided to do it from scratch which turned out to be quick and easy. 

It's based on a circle with added nodes and a bit of deforming. 


Again it's all about variation. The design is nice and simple and very flexible. Let's try some directional drips. The first one drips down to the lower right and the second variation drips straight down.


I hope this might be helpful ... Enjoy!

  1. I love your blog...

    BTW, one question: what is that "grunge" clip you use several times in other examples (in the window one, etc...)? Did you make it, is it a texture...?

    1. Hi Henrik... I did write a tutorial that might help. Due to the lack of multiple pages the best way in my opinion is the use of layers.
