Yet Another Pirate

Can you tell us more about the brushes you use in Photoshop? I'm impressed by the pastel quality you are able to achieve.

Also, what resolution do you work in? I find it hard to get realistic textures when working on a large field.

Thanks for posting. Your work is very inspiring.

Hey Brandon, nice character design. Love the teeth. I enjoyed looking at your newly upgraded website. I've been trying to update mine for over half a year now. I just need to get in there and finish it!

Thanks guys for the comments!! To Mr. Anonymous, I almost always work at 300 dpi, and on sketch stuff like this on a 5x7 canvas. I use some basic dry media brushes with some texture added too the brush. I set the Angle Jitter under Shape Dynamics high and use a Color Dodge mode under Texture. Not sure if this helps, but my main advise is to play around with all the Brush Dynamics until you find something you like. There are so many awesome looks you can get.
