FightingSeraph - Roger that
ArtZealot - Sorry for letting you wait so long with a reply, I've been pretty busy. I can't really explain much, i use about 3-4 of my favorite custom brushes, the other textures come from my texture library.
A lot is just try out and experiment with blending modes, then paint on top of it. I have a huuuge folder where i save every image i see and somehow like, often i take photographs on my own, then maybe use it for texture later.
I try to find a good way and try a lot of things, so there's a lot of chaos in my process. But usually it goes like this:
Rough image with round or chalk brush -> add some texture with custom brushes -> throw some textures on it (i use older images from me as well as photos) -> Paint again (-> texture -> paint)...and so on until I'm satisfied.
I hope that helped a little, i attached an example
Thank you a lot for your interest and kind comment!
