Hi everyone!
I thought to start a thread where people can show there sketching technique.
Everyone can post tutorials and brushes and stuff in this thread.
Since I was asked several times to do some tutorials (still don't feel like I have enough experience for that.....) I thought I should start this thread.

I answered some questions in some sketchgroup topics but they get lost.
Nobody will search for the old threads to get some information. So I thought this
could be good as a sticky thread so everyone can share there knowledge at any time.

Thnx Roberto for the sticky feature!

So here are some of my files.

Goro's Brushes (compatible with Photoshop CS) 2.8MB UPDATED 11.09.2005!
(these are not only my custom brushes. many brushes are collected from other artists)

Goro - you are so humble! You say that you don't feel you have the experience, but your work is always so wonderful! It does help the rest of us who are newer to the process to see how you "great ones" do your work. Especially how fast you can turn out a fantastic sketch when I labor for hours over something mediocre!

It is greatly appreciated that y'all are so helpful and willing to share your skill and expertise. Thank you very much!

[edit: I wish I had PS CS, your brushes won't load into PS7 or PS Elements :( ]

Thnx guys! I'm gald you like my idea

Here is a link to the software called Artrage. It's freeware and a great intuitive
painting tool. (without layers and zoom)
Funny to do some sketches with it.


cheers! Goro

Nice idea goro!

Hope I can contribute (hey, some of you asked for it! ) as soon I have some time left (and have my website up and running).
Would be nice to see 'tuts' by Mat Dixon, Balistic, SirPatroclo, Stephan S (remember that guy?) just to name a few.

great idea goro. I'd like to encourage sketchers to do some tutorials and share some stuff, don't feel embarassed, get it over with

I don't use special brushes that much otherwise I would've shared them. I'll save some inbetween stages of the better pieces I'll hopefully do.

and maybe it's an idea to merge this thread with the "show your technique" thread art2 started?
