    Why so "plastic"?

    Hi guys,
    it's been a while since I posted here.
    This is my last exercise after understanding some little things about digital painting and the problem is that the rendering made by brush, it's not that pictorial but seems like plastic.

    It's Photoshop CS6 and I use a standard round brush with opacity and flow set on 100% and on brush settings -> transport, opacity variation set on pen pressure and flow variation disabled.

    Why is that happening? How can get a pictorial effect?

    Thank you!!

    Try using a textured brush, the problem with using the standard round brush is that is has absolutely no texture. I personally like these brushes. http://deharme.deviantart.com/art/DE...p-CC-439426469

    Study painting. Set up a simple still life, one object in a shadow box with one light source, and paint it, taking your time to get it right. Use traditional media, like charcoal on paper.
