This tutorial will cover photorealistic material rendering
using Photoshop brushes
. We will make textured balls (spheres)
like in 3D
Let's create a document first:
So have your area selected: all the time while you paint. Our first specimen will be - rock texture. When you basically work

texturing with a mere brush. However you should know how it's done the primitive way and the thing that we are using custom
brushes can be judged like a little cheating.
SO: Here are my custom brushes: all the 500.

Overlay the object a little bit. Gives a contrasted green
