Hi All!

I recently heard about those Craig videos thing.
Someone was searching them too.
So i did a search around and for all Craig Mullins Fans out there
here is a link of a Sijun.com forums thread with links to those files:

[http://forums.sijun.com/viewtopic.p...57242f8e75ecf18](http://forums.sijun.com/viewtopic.php?p=287683&sid=9c26e82769795034557242f8e75ecf18)

BTW, for those, who like me didn't knew,

on the Sijun.com forums, Craig is going under the nick:

warm regards,
saiko

Thanks these will be helpful

Anytime I do quick sketches, I’ll always use the same two custom brushes. One is a scatterbrush for laying out colour extremely fast, and the other is a solid brush with other dynamics & pen pressure checked for details such as eyes, hair, and highlighting the edges, or just sharpening up what I’ve done with the scatterbrush. I select a background colour (which in most cases is in the blue hue slight-desat range). I take that colour, and on the side I lay out a darker version of it, and a lighter version of it, so I can easily dip into it when highlighting and laying shadows. I’ll pick a completely random colour, often a purple/orange/red and lay it out on the side as well so I can blend it in from time to time in different areas and the bg.

Using the scatterbrush I can quickly lay down the colour for the basic shape of the area I want, and then go over it with the solid brush for the sketch, and then using the scatterbrush start laying shadows and colour wherever I need to. Nothing (in my opinion) makes painting faster than doing it that way. I also tend to keep it in one layer, and I use the shortcuts for increasing/decreasing brush size. And I blend by hitting alt [often] and dipping while I go. I like blending the background into the foreground as well (using the scatterbrush once again) to give it some atmosphere. That’s my technique anyhewt.

thanks for the tip :slight_smile:
… but could u please post some image of it which would help to understand it more easily for many people (like Me!) …

best regards…

Sure. I’m at work (working hard as you can clearly see), but when I get home I’ll show you exactly which brushes I use. I almost feel guilty using the scatterbrush because it lays the colour out so fast, it feels as if it’s doing all of the work.


#116

I’m home now, just wondering what exactly you would like to see? The exact brushes I use? A step by step quick painting in screenshots?
Let me know

eep, sorry for the delay, I’m not subscribed to this thread (well I will be now), and had kind of forgotten. I guess when I get home today I’ll just upload the brushes I use, I think I can save them individually.


#119

To get the brush on the right, I started with a solid photoshop default brush, checked other dynamics and pen pressure. I typically have the flow at 100% and I mess with the opacity depending on what I’m doing.

The brush on the left I did everything I did with the brush on the right, except I also checked scattering. You can play with the scatterbrush to find a “scatter” that you like. I find it extremely helpful with laying down colours quickly for easy blending. Hope that was a good enough explanation, but let me know if you really were looking for a better one. I can’t show anyone how to paint, but at least for me, having the right brushes certainly does make it easier.
