Create dynamic distortion effects

I like to create dynamic work that conveys a sense of velocity in its subjects, and the visual featured in this tutorial is a prime example of that style.

In the following steps, I'll let you in on one of the most effective and easily mastered techniques that I use to make striking, dynamic distortions of subjects - in this case I've used a model, although the technique can be adapted to any objects that you wish to feature in your work, such as cars or trees.

In this tutorial we'll use brushes to create what look like stains of paint, but in your future work you can use similar techniques with any number of style forms to dissect and distort your subject.
