I am looking for info on how this style of painting was done. I am not looking to paint this picture exactly but I love the style. If anyone can direct me to a good description of the brushes and settings for this type of painting I would be a very happy man.

Avoid airbrush, smudging, selections with soft edges.
Use large brushes with heavy texture, and small brushes with hard edges and no texture. Pressure sensitive of course. Keep layering strokes from these at varying sizes and varying pressures, until you see this kind of effect. It's very simple and straight forward, like drawing with black marker and White-Out correction fluid. Almost primitive. Don't use Undo too much, instead fix mistakes by re-drawing on top. Start from dark or medium dark, then add lighter colors on top.
