Cabin in the Woods Study
I came across a great photo of a cabin in the woods by Daniel Cristian over at Unsplash and decided to use it for a nature study. Done in Procreate over an hour and a half using brushes from Frankentoon (my favorite!) and Mike McCain. #FinishedNotPerfect
Photoshop Tips & Tricks
I’m getting a head start on my 2019 resolution to ‘master’ Photoshop. I feel like ‘master’ is perhaps an overly ambitious resolution but it sounds more goal worthy than ‘get to a point where I don’t rage quit in frustration because PS doesn’t do YY like app ZZ.’ With PS coming to iPad as well it seems a good time to put in the time to really get familiar with the software. So with that in mind I’m going to be posting frequently a condensed-ish post with tips and tricks I am picking up and sharing them here.

I recently downloaded an awesome brush pack for Clip Studio Paint by RoastedStix over at dA. I love the texture it creates. I used 3 brushes mainly- the Round Gouache (fine), Dry Bristle Round (pressure) small, and the Square Opaque. I used the Round Gouache mainly for the smoother skin parts- pressing down a bit gave a really nice smooth texture while pressing lightly gave a slightly rougher one……

This is just a short clip from a great tutorial by Strawberriice over at Deviantart (here). Another great way to pick colors that I need to keep in mind.
