This tutorial will demonstrate how to make a simple texture stamp out of rubber latex. In this case, I’m making a stamp from the lovely skin textures of two fruits, an orange and an avocado. You can pull textures from pretty much any non-porous surface.
What do “pixel”, “screen resolution”, “image dimension”, “PPI”, “DPI”, and “high resolution image” mean, and why should you care?
Quick note: The screenshots in this tutorial come from Photoshop CS2, but there should be something similar in most digital art programs.
A pixel (picture element) is a single, tiny square of color, the smallest unit displayed on a computer monitor. It is common for digital artwork to be done as a raster-based (aka bitmap) image – that is to say, it is comprised of a grid of individual pixels.
