Hi Bjorn, Loving your animation and illustration work especially the wallflowers and studies you have been doing on here. Your digital painting looks so bloody good i was just wondering what brushes you use to get your ink style line work and the really nice textures in your work ? obviously a lot of thats down to your drawing skills but would love to know the sort of settings you use. Keep up the sik work and look forward to seeing further projects Cheers George

Hi! Sorry, just realised I hadn’t answered this. Thanks for your nice comments George I have a very troubled relationship with brushes, mainly because of Photoshops terrible handling of the brush library. I seem to loose my favourite brushes every couple of months or so for some reason or another. So I’ve given up trying to keep track. I usually just make something by chance or coincidence and end up using it for a while until I loose it in the inevitable chaos of the brush library. I’ve actually really taken a liking to drawing in Flash. Simply because there is no choice but to use the insanely idiotic and simple round brush that comes with it. I usually use the biggest round brush with pressure sensitivity set to “hard” in the prefs. That way it makes a nice even hairline when pressed lightly ( a bit like a biro) but lets you gloop out some thicker lines when you need to. Anyway I’ll attach a link to my PS brushes if you want to have a look, be warned, it’s probably gonna mess up your own library so use with caution. https://www.dropbox.com/s/uxgx95ce1qmgvdl/Bjorns_photoshop_brushes_as_of_14MAY2013.abr I know it’s from may last year but it really hasn’t chanced much since then.
