Thank you for your generosity in sharing such a detailed tutorial when it comes to digital painting some of us need a little spoon feed just to get the gist of things and you've made that possible.

It is much appreciated.

I try to break things down to the lowest common demonstrator, to make it easy to understand.
Its the best way to learn! Both for you and me ;)

For which version of it?
In the final part of the painting, it shows all the exact settings for that type

Thank you. I really really enjoyed this. I hear people say often that the ability to create custom brushes in Photoshop trumps all, but I have never understood how to figure it out in terms of making a brush do what I want! This is very helpful, and thank you for being so beginner friendly!
Reply
:iconmatthewzikry:
MatthewZikry Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
Its all about being beginner friendly ^_^
Honestly, I would just take a round brush, open up that brush tool settings, and just play with every setting
turn a setting on, make a brush stroke, figure out what it did, and repeat with all the settings

You'll find yourself learning a lot!!
