Well, Socar Myles mentioned at her site, that he uses texture brushes, from time to time. My question is, why do you care? I mean, when I first saw Luna’s stuff I was amazed. I wanted to paint everything using the pallette knife. But Luna uses an Intuos, while I use a graphire, so my results were never going to approach being close to his, even if I had the same level of talent and skill(I don’t).
I started improving, when I stopped wonderring about what other people do. I started playing with Painter. Painter is most fun when you don’t have a pic in mind and just start playing, editing brush variants, and experimenting with different types of layers and brushes. So much fun. Just have fun.
BTW, don’t Mr. Mullins’ “oil sketches” drive you nuts? I mean what he calls a sketch looks like a finished painting to me. grrr. I think maybe when he was made, he got a heaping cupfull of talent, while I got a level teaspoon of the stuff:D
