Making a Custom Selection Brush

Making a Custom Selection Brush

By Cher Pendarvis

In this tutorial, Painter Master Elite Cher Pendarvis shows you how to create a custom selection brush from sections of your artwork. Working with the Flat Color 2 brush from the Pens and Pencils brush category, Cher takes you through the steps of brushing over your selection area, saving you selection, and adding other selection areas to the mask. Once your selection is created, you can use it to make adjustments within the selection area, or invert the selection and make edits to the background.
