This week’s prompt from Inktober52 was “spooky”. My idea was to have the word spooky written out in tree branches, starting with one of my own photos. In Photoshop, I would have approached this using the clone tool. Adobe Fresco has a multi-color eye dropper tool that can be used somewhat like a clone tool, but it wasn’t working for this project. Instead, I found that using a pixel brush with a basic hard tip size 6 would make small circles. If I reduced the flow to give some transparency, and used the Apple pencil to make overlapping dots, it mimicked the light coming through the branches well. I used a separate layer to write the word to use as a guide, then worked the dappling magic around each letter before darkening the centers with a larger brush size. I restarted this image four times before finding a technique I wanted to use!
