Hello and welcome to the Alchemy
tutorial. IN this one we will use new software, it's called Alchemy
and it's still in beta
stage, but I think it is a great Application to use in Concept design
especially in vehicle or mechanical stuff design. I 'm
very exited on this one, because I think Alchemy Developers
did a great job and we are waiting for the final release of this
So a few worlds what is Alchemy about this software. This is a open drawing project that can help you develop your concept
through building shapes. It is very easy to use; it has user friendly interface and enough talking, let's get started on this
You can download Alchemy Alpha 005
if you sign in on:
Here is the main window; I think it is the only window there.
You have: LINE STYLE, LINE POSITION, LINE WEIGHT, COLOR PICKER, FOREGROUND/BACKGROUND TOGGLER, TRANSPARENCY SCALE, AND THE
MOST INTERESTING PART : SHAPE TYPE AND THE EFFECT ON THE SHAPE.
So now I will start to build the shapes.
I choose TYPE SHAPES (as my shape type) & DISPLACE (as my effect on the shapes)
SO here is my first shape I've created. I really can't explain how I did it, the only thing that I know that you should try
this Application. The shapes are semi controlled by user, and it's a lot of fun.
Another good thing about Alchemy is that you are able to export and save your shapes in .PNG (with transparency) format and
then bring it to Photoshop, Painter of whatever graphic application you use.
Save some shapes.
Another Amazing feature is - MIRROR. You can create shapes on 2 sides at a time. Once again I can't really explain the
emotions you get from this, just try this Application.
Here are some shapes to make it clearer.
The Mirror is ON.

SO it was a great one, but it's time to skip to Photoshop.
Here are my shapes opened already on PS.
As you can see we have transparent background so we can now create a new document and drag all the shapes to one single
Here we have it. I've also made a copy of 2 colored shapes and made the copy a little bit smaller then the initial shape.
