Plaid Tutorial by Tetiel Plaid Tutorial by Tetiel
A couple people have requested this tutorial and I figured, hey, why not help out. Let me know if you don't understand something. I'm sure it's a bit confusing but it's difficult to explain some things especially if people may not know how to use photoshop well. I did my best ^^;

UPDATE: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG DD THANK YOU SO MUCH I'm so happy I could help so many people ;_;

KikaiSaigono said "Plaid Tutorial by *Tetiel is a wonderful tutorial that explains one of the most complicated patterns to recreate in digital art: the feared plaid. Tetiel gives great step-by-step instructions that even a novice user of photoshop can use, and the end result is terrific." ( Suggested by KikaiSaigono and Featured by UnicornReality )

I was wondering how one of my friends was able to draw plaid artwork in her designs. Now I know why! XD

When you draw the plaid lines, do you draw with the brush tool or the pen tool?

I use the pen tool. I know a lot of people probably say it's a nono, but I can't make very straight lines without it. Never have been able to xD
