Shattered Photoshop Tutorial
A couple of weeks ago I was inspired by this pose and dress and wanted to create an image of a girl falling apart in pieces. I was experimenting with different tutorials I found online and they just weren’t helping me as much. So I showed my plurk friends a work in progress image (in this plurk) and they gave me lots of good advice, which I took and came up with the image you see here. However, it still needs a lot more work and polishing up but I’ve finally given up on it, for now. Real life got me busy so I haven’t had time to look up more tutorials or see how else I can improve it.
In the meantime, a few of you have messaged me and asked me how I did this effect. It’s really hard for me to explain it over IM or email so I promised to do this video and here it is. Not sure if it’s easy to follow or if it makes any sense but this is what I did to get this effect.
I am embedding the video below but you can click over to youtube to view it larger.
You can download the shattered glass photoshop brush that I used in the video from Theme Cavern at this link. (UPDATE: No longer available, try these ones)
If I know myself well, I am sure I am going to continue to figure this shattered image out more in a few weeks when I have more time. If I can think of a better way to do this so it looks more polished, I will definitely share it here!
Let me know what you think of this tutorial and if you want me to share more like this!

Yay! This is an effect I’ve so wanted to learn. I had no idea you could download brushes for PS. So much to learn! Thank you for taking time to put this together. It’s SUPER helpful watching your process. I just wish I could click on your layers! LOL That doesn’t seem to work.
What software do you use to make your videos?

Thank you Whiskey! Yeah I have like literally thousands of brushes downloaded, I love them. Let me know if you have any questions about installing the brush, I didn’t think to mention it in my post but now I’m thinking maybe I should have.
