    How to get this effect?

    Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to achieve this effect in photoshop and to learn more about it, but I don't even know where to begin searching for this particular style.

    http://serebii.net/anime/pictures/specials/029ps3.shtml

    I'm talking about the brush-like strokes on the trees and bushes. I noticed at the end of some animes there is a final image that kind of have this effect, but I don't know what it's called, so I don't know what to search for. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    thanks

    Are you asking me if they are called brushstrokes? I don't know what the art style is hence why I'm asking what direction to begin my search. I tried searching for "brush stroke effect in animes" and didn't quite get anywhere. :/

    Sometimes, a brushstroke is just a brushstroke (Sigmund Freud)
    When I see an effect that walks like a brushstroke and swims like a brushstroke and quacks like a brushstroke, I call that effect a brushstroke (James Whitcomb Riley)
    You see, a brushstroke is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And a brushstroke operates exactly the same way: you send brushes here, they receive strokes there. The only difference is that there is no cat (Albert Einstein)

    Making a search of your posts. You make too many "what style, effect, etc is this?"
    Style is created not learned, effects mean nothing if you don't know the foundations behind it. Just draw man, there aren't any magic shortcuts or styles people take on that make them good.

    I'm not really looking for a shortcut. I am aware that I asked "what style is this" 3 times, however, I was merely looking to see if there were any documentation on those art styles. I don't particularly like asking for help on this forum, I only ask when I don't know where to begin or what terms to use in my searches. When I see a style that I like, I try to copy it before expanding on it but I would like to read any documentation (if they exist) to see if rules apply. I hope I make sense. Thanks everyone for your help so far.

    This isn't a style as such. What you have is 'stylised' trees. It looks like they might have masked off the bushy leaves and used either motion-blur on textured brush marks or just faded-off a textured brush or maybe one with a dual brush option. Stuff like this you learn as you play with Photoshop yourself. Try things... serendipity can be your friend.

    Thank you. I was playing around with photoshop earlier and I did manage to get some simliar effects. Your posts confirmed I was somewhat in the right direction. I was doing some research and found out about a painting technique called "Scumbling" which I thought might have been used in some form here.

    No its not scumbling; scumbling would be taking real paint and applying it to a real painting using a drybrush technique, that would be scumbling.
