my usual array of brushes includes pencils for sketching up stuff, pastels for quickly filling in what i'm coloring, mostly the airbrush and lasso tool for massing/shading out my shapes and forms and cleaning up edges, patten pens for adding noise/texture, F-X glow tool for adding lights, glows, and sometimes as a blender to eliminate visible strokes. I use a couple of blenders for different purposes, and i like the felt tip art marker for going in and adding fine hard lines. Alot of the others like the oils and real bristle brushes are just too laggy on my computer for me to have the patience to use them, so my brush palette consists of those that are easier on my processor.
"Today, a young man on acid, realised that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration. That we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves... here's Tom with the weather." - Bill Hicks
