I got some questions about this, and there’s no point in me posting any brush-sets since I basically only use three. I remember when I was new to Photoshop, and I found it really hard to find any good info on how to make my brushes less blurry, so here it is. All of these require a tablet with pen pressure enabled for good results.

The first one is my sketching/lineart brush, which gives a really nice crisp line. I also use this for laying down my flat colors and when I’m doing solid shadows. Since it produces a very thin tip, it’s great for defining hair/fur without much problem.

The second is my main blending brush, which I usually combine with a lower opacity, from 35%-80%, depending on what I’m doing. The “transfer”-option gives a nice texture without being overwhelming.

The third is basically just the same as the blending brush, just with softer edges for, you know, when you need that.

I decided to look into this because of the feature creep thing i reblogged earlier

It’s a pretty neat site! It has a lot of information on things I don’t see covered much, like value contrast, dynamic poses, things like that. There are also a lot of these really neat analyses of pinups, which are pretty insightful

tw: this entire thing is about ‘pin-up research and development’, so there’s a lot of talk about hot girls, boosting the sexiness of your subject, and that sort of thing. it does look like they’re trying to be respectful; most of their blog posts are about straight-up art principles and there are some lady artists represented, but sometimes it can get questionable and i just wanted to warn you guys about that beforehand
