Does anyone know how to create that spotty shading affect that is in Gavin’s work? You know those dark spots under the Playstation 3 (PS3)?

I have always wanted to make those in photoshop but don’t know how.

Hi Chris – Print out your image, attach some tracing paper, and try using a grease pencil on the tracing paper over some rough board to fill in the areas you want to have the texture. Scan it, turn the scan into a bitmap and lay over your image.
Just the first way that comes to my mind. I’m sure there are other ways to achieve the same effect.

Hey Chris, There’s lots of way to achieve this effect through Photoshop and Illustrator. For me, the easiest way in Illustrator is to:
1. Create desired shape for the shadow or texture.
2. Place a “Fade to Black” gradient replacing the black in the opaque slider with a color you want to introduce. BTW, you can use the traditional gradient just set the transparency to multiply or whatever will work for your project.
3. To get the grainy texture go to Effects: Pixelate: Pointillize.
Hope this helps.
