some sketching with painter's conte.. had a lot of fun drawing this , but need to practice more bodies
lets start this page number 2 !! )
it's sunday ! stuck at work, did these between 2 bugs fixing =P
practicing hue blending on the skin and specular on glossy surfaces.
i dont really like the girl drawing tho... she came out with a BS pose and again i did not spend time on the construction so hands and spot i didnt draw often are messy...
i really love this one. however i am yet to see someone add color in a way that doesn't look like it was just washed over, using that technique. a very strong composition. and i hope you do it justice.
good last post.
Anyway I usually paint with 100% opacity and then connect my brush to opacity jitter, through pen pressure. And then I'll usually change my flow depending on the pressure I want to play with - from 1% flow to 100%.
This are not set in stone, and I sometimes play with 100% opacity, flow jitter to pressure, or just random jitter, or no opacity/flow jitter at all (but these are rare, as I rather have them connected and some dual brush action going for hard brushes).
Anyway my tip to you is that you download some brushes, try to get them from who ever, where ever - for example I can upload you mine if you wish ~ and start experimenting yourself. In the end selecting one brush in photoshop is like limiting yourself to one tool, trying to master that. It might be worth it, but I'm pretty sure it isn't
So try your idea for awhile, throw in some changes, try that for awhile, get some inspiration from others, try that for awhile, start over etc etc ad inifitum.

happy monday !
thanks for the good comments guy ! i appreciate it !
but if you got things that bugs you about my art, please tell it to me, I dont want to miss anything i could improve. My vacation starts tomorrow so be ready for massive updates everyday
fish: glad you like it ! please come back anytime hehe
haven: thanks ^^
Dan: thanks for answering me mate, the piece below was done entierly with a 50% opacity and size on pressure, i tried to play with the flow as you suggested, works pretty well too, now i must stop limiting myself to the round brush.
Slav: Yo dude, too bad i wont color it hehehe the movie is black and white ( sorta Sin city look ), but you remind me that i should try out coloring some uncolored pieces. Usually i start with a multiply layer with a bluish color to set up the ambient light and sometimes use the grayscale drawing as a mask for that ambient layer, and just invert the mask and use it on another layer set as overlayt or hardlight for the main light source, and then its just good old painting.
so here's more tentacle fun
~ 30 min in photoshop

looking good, and I can't really give any advice on real painting, or on painter - sorry
but I like.
