Tools like the "Brush" and "Eraser" seem like obvious choices for making digital paintings.  But what about the "Lasso"?  As it turns out, Photoshop's lasso tool can be an incredibly powerful addition to your digital workflow.

Ctrl+Paint has devoted lots of time to the brush tool, so it's only fair to devote a bit to the lasso tool.  This is the first video of a short mini-series, and by the end I hope to convince you on the merits of this unlikely tool.
