Textures and Brushes
So I reciently discovered "Brushes" on photoshop. OH! i always knew they existed....but the ones i knew where the crappy ones that came with photoshop. I didn't realize their true POWER!!!! until I got some pretty nice ones some prominent concept artists use *not naming names, but they are freakishly good. So I thought I'd try some painting type stuff.
They make painting digitally SOOOOooooOOOoo much more fun!!! makes me wish I had taken a digital painting class instead of learning this the hard way. Instead of painting every lil tree, there is a TREE BRUSH! Instead of fudging around with textures and crap there are cool Texture Brushes! I've always heard about them and seen the results, but never experienced it first hand.
The ghostship i've been working on and tried that quick mask technique. The other two I did in 1/2 an hour. They are pretty sloppy but it was cool to play around with the brushes. I think i might do some more. Right now I'm looking at compositions, stealing from stuff, because i have hardly any experience in this..nothing in the mental vault to draw upon. Anywho let me know what you think?
