How to transfer a painting to digital artwork with examples.
Today, I would like to show you how to select one letter from among beautiful Chinese characters, apply patterns to these characters, and transform them.
First, select the text using the rectangle tool of the selection tool and copy it. (copy: command + C )
Pastes the selected text into a new file. Then use the Object selection tool to select the text. (If you select all strokes, hold down the shift key and then click each stroke to select them all.)
If the object selection tool is working well you should see a blue selection area like below.
Right-click to go to the Fill menu.
After that click on the pattern you want.
You can see that the pattern is applied to the selected area as shown below.
To deform the text, go to the Liquify menu of the filter.
Select the first icon for making it go forward. The icon means Forward warp Tool.
You can see how it was transformed.
