One awesome thing about  new jobs is new office mates which mean talking shop and learning about someone else's artist tool box.I was totally unaware of shapes in Photoshop until yesterday .This is something that Sparth has talked quite a bit about and something i had completely missed.

I did this speed painting over lunch + a "smoke break" at 4 .This is not the first giant walker placed in the french country side I have painted  . probably not my last :) see here

I broke out a few steps so you can see the simplicity of the shapes and you can pretty easily ID them in the final but as a quick composition tool it works pretty slick .
