  • If you’re looking for recording software, search for Debut recording software, its made by NCH, it allows you to record from a webcam, screen, device like a dazzle and so on

  • OMG thanks for this comment. I was having the same problem. I was freaking out thinking I was crazy. LOL.

  • To Work ‘STROKE PATH’ Hit F5 and tick ‘Shape Dynamics’ This will enable the Stroke path option! THUMBS UP!

  • tnx man this helped allot

  • Great tutorial man ! you’re the Greatest Keep it up !!!!

  • can you just colorize your stroke only for examble black stroke without the light effect pls respont thx

  • can you use a picture with people in it then do the light glowing strokes or do you half to use differnet layers like you did in your video


  • what brush are you using? could you send me a link to download it from ?


  • This is a brilliant idea, I know now how to use wavy effects in my piece, but if you were to do this with you’re selected brush, you can simplify time by duplicating your layer that you’ve used you’re brush for (use it only once) then box blur you’re duplicated brush, I recommend turning it down to about 5-7, and you will now have a glowing effect 🙂 I shall upload a tutorial about it if I can 🙂
