About the Envelope Tool

The Envelope tool lets you deform and warp part of a drawing using a grid envelope and Bezier handles. You can warp images to make them look like they are reflected in water or in a deformable mirror.

NOTE: If you use the Contour Editor, Perspective or Envelope tool on a textured brush stroke, it will deform its texture to fit the new shape of the brush stroke. Note that this will resample the texture, which is liable to make it lose quality.
