    Digital painting: opacity, flow and other settings

    Hi,
    I'm struggling with this topic about digital painting (photoshop) since centuries.
    It seems like there are no website that can resolve this mistery; I'll be quick:
    - what setting should I use for opacity?
    - what setting should I use for the flow?
    - what about other settings?

    I know that these can change from person to person but I need a start because my attempts to paint are too muddy because of these settings.

    Thank you

    If you are suffering from muddiness I think the problem lies
    more in your handling of values and tone rather than the
    opacity of your brushes.

    Have you uploaded any of your illustrations onto the forums?

    Star Eater: I haven't got anything because every time I try, the feeling is to put everything in the thrash! I've just started a new "exercise" and I'm struggling with this problem. I can post it how's the work going on now, if you want to.

    Please upload your WIP in the critique section:

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=59

    Then we can check it out and lend a hand. You are going
    to have to show somebody your stuff at some point. Not
    all your creations are going to be masterpieces, especially
    when you are still getting to grips with the basics.
