Basic brush tutorial (for digital painting).
Made for my project partners.
These are the settings I start with on all of my custom digital painting brushes. Other things I fuss with: dual brush, wet edges, smoothing...
You could ask me a million questions about how I do things... but all I can tell you is what works for me (which may or may not work for you). Experimenting is the only way to really learn.
Why keep opacity above 90%?
Because opacity fucks with the light.
Adjust the flow instead.
Made with CS6.
