i've always had a bit of dislike for photoshop because no matter what bruh i choe it doesnt give a feeling like in other programs lik SAI, when brush  has certain type of blending (dunno how to explain what my perfect brush should feel like xD)
this brush is nice and quite close to the blending feeling, thanks for the tip. maybe it will help me to freshen up my relationship
with photoshop..
and your protraits really sweet.
luv your nickname, too.

Interesting and thanks! I've noticed a lot of great artists leaving shape dynamics off and just using pen pressure for opacity... I'll have to try that. I've always liked shape dynamics set to PP but maybe that's more for inking application?

I really understand one basic brush should be pretty much enough to do any masterpiece, yet I find this guide useful. I have had some hard time figuring out what settings actually have strong impact on my work, brush menu is kinda complex. Btw, I can't see transfer option up there, is it recommended to be used?

After reading this comment (just 2 minutes ago) I've decided to try making a brush or two at the most which will mimic this effect, I do not have my tablet with me atm but when I finish, I will post a link in response to your comment with a link to the brush settings in my gallery. :3

"Leraning about value, perspective, drawing, color and all that stuff is so much more important" EPIC answer. I think the tool doesn´t make the artist.

:D I think people are mislead by the "what brush?" question.
I keep on referring to your portraits every time and the real question
is : What is your technique for blending? colors so soft and close in hue/value and yet so sharp and 3D
I can see the rough brush strokes in some of your paintings (love it) and it doesn't seem that much sorcery
to me the method and color you use, but even rough or thoroughly blended effect is the same... breathtaking!!!
Gimme 1 or 2 tips pwwwease!? :3

This is great! Ever since I found your gallery I have been playing around with my brushes on photoshop to see if i can emulate how you do this...never occurred to me to set the brushes that way! working on a piece now with the new brushes and I can honestly say I know now why you paint this way...its super fun!! Thank you very much for sharing!

I've used a brush exactly like this myself for about two years now after learning about the transfer setting. Made painting so much more enjoyable to me. And yes, true be told "It's better to learn your fundamentals before anything else". It will speed up your progress times five. I wasted my first two years worries about how to render. The truth is, you'd be rendering a turd. I don't paint much these days, I'm more concerned with my studies. And 2 months in there have been huuuuuge improvements.
Thanks for sharing~ perhaps more people will understand the actual importance of learning the basics. You have to add fuel before you can expect heat.

Thanks for this. You understand the reason I asked before is that the finish of your pieces, esp the shorter time frame ones, a pretty unique. I surely know that its not the brush that makes the artist. But you can bet that it is the tool that gives the look sometimes. If you worked exclusively in charcoal or conte crayon I would still like to know how you go about making the decisions you do about their application. Part of the reason I love looking at your work so much is that it isn't readily apparent to me how it was made. Most art on DA I can take one look at it and make a list of methods they used to achieve the final product. It doesn't make them any less good, just as knowing Alex Ross loves gauche doesn't bring him down any. Wow, that was a long line of dribble. To sum up, I think many of the people on DA think like the example you used "If I use those brushes, I will be good" and I agree. But I think those who actually know a bit about drawing are sue you can make beautiful things with any implement. :) the end

and now people will understand that it's not the brush that makes the artist since this is a pretty normal brush setting ( tweaked a bit but normal ).

Exactly! I don't see this as a tutorial so much as something to explain why a brush tutorial actually wouldn't be very useful :) It's just the wrong thing for people to focus on.
