this is a GREAT tutorial! The greatest things are always very simple at the foundations :) I've been itching to try it out all day at work, but now that I'm home and at my computer, I think I've hit a snag. This may sound like a very stupid question, but erm.. I adjusted the brush part of the brush, to your specifications. But (in Photoshop 7), how do you get the smudge "version" of the brush, to adjust the way you have shown? I don't seem to be able to turn on scattering or smoothing, in "smudge" mode they are greyed out, though they work fine in normal "brush" mode.

Maybe I'm just over-tired and missing something very obvious? :(

+thanks Rebeccak, it is a pleasure...your anatomy lessons are brilliant

+jmBoekestein, you know...the technique is really simple and easy, the complex thing is what you do with it :)

+Alexandrite... Damn! I do not remember if that version (PHOTOSHOP 7) has the options.:sad:

Unless I knew this tutorial for quite a time (as I check your website on updates, quite often :twisted: ), it looks like such a natural way to do this... I still really need to give it a good try, but in every case it's cool to see the ways you - the master :bounce: - does do it! :) That awesome photoreal look of your images is great...!

I can't wait for the 2D-lighting-techniques lessons next year on Industial Design! ;) :buttrock:

Good luck with your stuff & again: thanks allot! :applause:

Greetz,

new to painting with photoshop, just got a wacom graphire 3, ive only used photoshop in my 3d modeling touch-ups, i can draw but no scanner, the wacom im steadily learning how to control all the functions, ive never used brushes to actually paint, i was wondering what you mean by finger? is there a certain brush called finger? of is it a custom brush? or am i way off, im trying your method but im lost by the word finger :) any help would be nice, or else my wacom would be a waste of money. thx

I call it "painting with fingers" because we used mainly the smudge tool.If you use photoshop you must know smudge tool ! Its icon is a finger, you know :)

I followed your tutorial and created that brush. It works great. I now realized that shape dynamics can be useful after all to create things such as foliage.

Thanks!:thumbsup:

Bee sure to post as many tutorials as possible.:buttrock:

Just discovered this thread a few weeks ago, and man, is it helpful. I painted this quickie (http://www.deviantart.com/view/27550008/) from photo reference (I don't own the copyrights) a couple of weeks ago. I used this technique as a basis for many parts of it.

Hey schwinnz, the image you posted looks cool because of the smudging, but the colors and values really need work. The tree is too bluish, and there aren't enough darker areas. Sky's pretty cool, though. Keep up the good work!

I haven't upgraded to the CS or CS2 because I've heard it's slower than the older versions(Ithink 6 was my favorite..it had a separate airbrush)
so when you use this technique you don't do the rapidzigzag strokes like you used to with the smudge tool, is that the idea that you are moving the stylus in a straightish stroke and letting the extra CS settings "auto vibrate/randomise" the stroke?

just trying to distinguish what the real difference is between the extra settings you get in CS versus PS7.

and feel free to tell me CS/CS2 isn't slower than PS7
quick test using ps7...
