mega brush

calledtheunknown  asked:

if this doesn't bother you do you mind sharing what kind of brushes do you use or an old tutorial? i just really love the texture in your 0812 studies and kinda wanted to see how you did that

I used default Photoshop flat brush for my 081216 study. You can play with the Opacity and Flow, but make sure to do some tweaking with your Tool Preset (It is under your brush icon, next to Mode at the upper left corner of your Photoshop window, Toggle the Brush Panel. It looks like this):

  • - Shape Dynamics: Change the Control under Angle Jitter from “Off” to “Rotation.”
  • - Color Dynamics: You don’t have to turn this on, but I just have it on because I am too lazy to mix my own color palette. It creates texture too.
  • - Transfer: Make sure to allow your Pen Pressure to control your Flow Jitter.
  • - Smoothing: Turn it on.

This is probably the quickest way to make your own customized brushes, but you can also buy Kyle Webster’s Mega digital brush set. It is worth it.

Some good tutorials and online art schools:

anonymous asked:

Hi! I was wondering what kind of brushes and textures you use in your art? (The most common ones you use that is :P) That would be really cool!

I use a lot of brushes, and I have a bunch downloaded. Some I can’t remember where they came from and others you can’t get anymore (they were taken off the internet or something) 

but here are some of the ones I was able to hunt down

-Essential Illustration Brushes

-Lintu’s Brushes

-Triangle Brushes

-Frenden Brushes (these ones you have to buy but I love them~)

-Kyle T Webster’s Mega Brush Pack (these are, no joke, my FAVORITE brushes, I use these brushes more than any other) 

THE TIP-OFF: WILD CAT

Color your perspective.

Those who think liners should be confined to neutrals need to open their eyes! “There’s so much fun to be had with liner,” says Sephora PRO Artist Erik Soto. For this rainbow eye look, Erik pulled a metallic black, a bold teal, and a bright purple out of his bag of makeup tricks. Wear this look to a nightclub or a trip to the grocery store—as long as you own it, it will look good. BECKY PEDERSON

STEP ONE
Draw a fine line with Kat Von D Lightning Liner in Jett along your top lashes, making a tiny wing when you reach the outer corner. Let it dry.

STEP TWO
Carefully draw a second line with Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Teal, right above the black liner from step one. Keep a steady hand so there is no empty space between the black and the teal.

STEP THREE
Line your lower lashes with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Psychedelic Sister, using SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Shader Brush #18 to smudge between the lashes. Swipe on a layer of Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara and you’re good to go.

PRO TIPS
“I always tell people, if you’re going to embark on liquid liner, practice before you take your makeup off at night. This way,” says Erik, “you can get the movement down before you try it for real in the morning. It’s like, who cares if you make a mistake? No one’s gonna see. It’s the best time to experiment with your makeup.”
