i just discovered ur blog and fell in love this mightve been asked before but how do u create ur textures in ur art? its rough and has gorgeous vibes to it!!
I use the default photoshop brushes as well as this brush pack.
I try to match the feeling of the object to the brush, so things like string and hair may have a coarser brush than a mirror, but I don’t have set brushes for certain objects!
I also use the opacity lock a lot, so I tend to block in shapes and worry about shading after the silhouettes look good.
Using quick gestures and trying to be as confident as you can does a long way!! Being too soft/hesitant with the brush may make the texture get lost! Contrast in your values will always help bring out the brush.
The best way to keep texture is to be willing to let the brush do what it does instead of trying to go back in with an eraser and make it super refined. Imperfections are always good
I can talk more but hopefully this helped!!
