Aww thank you! :D
the programme I use is photoshop 7, as old as it is so anything above that I assume has the same default brushes.
To sketch/add scribbly lines on things I use the stumpy pencil brush, for my main.. mess of art I actually use a plain default photoshop brush and a couple of dual brushes I made very quickly for my shading!
This one is my main flats brush:
I just made a copy of it which has a few extra settings like pressure and tilt sensitivity so it tapered rather than being a heavy block.
My shading brushes are a hot mess to be honest I just made them while playing in brush settings, their base brush is one called “soft airbrush opacity flow” (catchy!) and I played about with dual brush settings with sample texture brushes, the result was a brush that when used hard would do solid shading and when used lightly overlayed texture speckles.
I often just mess about and make new brushes using just the default things so I’d recommend that!
Then I finish off by overlaying paper textures on around 25/30% opacity usually on colour burn setting.
Sorry if this isn’t helpful it’s really hard to break down just how ass-backwards I work :’D#vulcanimals #posted in case anyone else wanted to know
