    general advice needed

    itsbilly

      Hi,

       

      I'm pretty new to photoshop still (using CS4) and am undertaking a project which involves many small images (20x20 - 60x60). These will be pictures that I'll have to draw myself, things like gears, pulleys, other small mechanical type items. I'm finding it very difficult and counter-intuitive to a certain degree. You can't just draw lines and expect things to look right. Any general advice on how to approach this? I tried creating bigger objects and paths and then scaling them down but that didn't seem to work too well. I think next I was planning on drawing some things and then scanning them in. I'm just looking for general ideas. Thanks,
