Turn any photo into a dot grid artwork with these Photoshop actions. You'll get great results with dots that change size. They get larger in brighter areas and smaller in darker areas. Free download available.
Paste in our triangle. You can modify it a bit. Here is a rotation:
Go to the Image > Adjustments >> Brightness/Contrast to make a particle more visible.
For changing tones you can use levels as well.
Now, with a Polygonal lasso tool, create third dimension of particle. Make a selection and fill it with some dark color.
Then (on a new layer) use Polygonal lasso tool to add some shadow to the particle. Select similar area (it may vary if you set your light source somewhere else), fill it with gradient with very dark color...
... and then deselect it and blur at the end with blur tool.
These are very small details, so you don’t have to pay full attention to them, but they will be visible in the final product, so don’t forget about them. The house is built from bricks. So big house and so small bricks...
So you know how to create cracks and single particles. I’ve made some more of them:
Also I cut out some pretty huge part of the egg. I shouldn’t do that for we are so far, but I will tell you the last time: pick Polygonal marquee tool, create a selection and then hit [Delete] while you having egg’s base layer selected.
Now we are going to make a huge fragment of a detached eggshell. But before that we will try to hide eggs flatness. In Step 26 and 27 I told you to make a copy of our egg’s layer. I assume you did so. You can now [Ctrl] + [Click] on a thumbnail of this copy so you will have a selected full shape of the original layer.
Take the Polygonal marquee tool, set the selection mode to Intersect with selection and select the only part that we need.
Create new layer and place it under the base egg’s layer. Then fill a selection with color #7d4b1a. Next, create some funky selection to simulate the inner part of the eggshell.
Then hit [Delete]. You can also use Liquify filter to make edges of newly created layer more interesting.
We will add some shadows to this layer to make a deep effect. Create a clipping layer to our new inner eggshell. Now pick a color #543516 or even darker and play with gradients.
