First of all i would ask you all to excuse my inexperience and what may seem like ignorance because i am new to this world of concept art (and quite young, haha).
Anyways, i am getting into digital painting using Photoshop CS2 and my new Wacom Tablet and i have completed a few small projects. Well now I'm looking to advance in this field and started to focus on the things that i need to work on particularly.
So heres my request,
BRUSH SETTINGS, haha, as silly as it may seem i am only aware of one type of brush settings which give kind of a pressure sensitive, pen feeling and its very limiting, i was wondering if anyone could possibly tell me or link me to some new ones and the kind of brush effects they achieve as i just can't make anything work!
thank you very much for your help,
i have just looked through this section and seen a number of threads that can answer my question, and needless to say i feel a little stupid. My new request would be a sampling of those settings + techniques for a beginner like me to achieve advanced effects.
In Photoshop when you press F5 or go window-brushes a menu will appear in which you can practically change all your brush settings as well as create new custom brushes. I recommend trying to create your own (look for a tutorial on how to create brushes) and the other thing i recommend is play with opacity as well as layer/brush styles such as multiply. A hotkey I find extremely useful when using the brush tool is the numbers 0-9. When you press 6 your opacity will change to 60% and if you press 6 again it will change to 66% (simple principle. give it a try). hope that helps
