You are so talented! You make digital painting look so natural and organic.
Do you have any tips for digital painting? I've been trying to get into it for a while but I just can't seem to get comfortable with a process for it, I know it just takes practice but I feel like I'm missing something. hehe
Haha well to me it looks like you have! You at least have a definite comprehensive style and theme.
Well, just for basics what kind of brushes do you use and how do you use them? I use the brushes that come with Photoshop (I don't know what program you use) and some that I've downloaded that other deviants have made for use, but I don't exactly get how to blend them or how to make them look like actual strokes that look nice instead of just a really messy digital speed paint... Also, do you use any textures? I can't even figure out how to use them in a painting, either in brush form or as just an image texture.
I work with the standard hard round brush, I use it with low opacity and a size of around 7 px for drawings and 20 for paintings, and sometimes I use the blender tool to soften the strokes. About the textures, I use a scanned watercolor paper jpeg on top of the drawing, in multiply mode and about 20% opacity, and sometimes I add other textures like scanned splatters or paint stains.
