I'm having a bit of trouble with the different brushes. I cant sem to find one that is effective enough for colouring. Would someone be able to give me a link to where I could download some good custom brushes? I will post my peice here when I am done.
eh, custom brushes are both a good and bad. A double edged sword, if you will.
Usually custom brushes are only good for the project they are built for. And the stock brushes aren't that great.
Although if you know how to build a brush for a project, and use it right then it can become a powerful tool.
For coloring, your best option is to use the basic round brush. If you need some effects with it, mess with the brush presets, and opacity.
Also make sure to make good use of your layers. They can be one of the most powerful features of photoshop.
Make a layer under your line art and color it. If your top later isn't transparent, Set its blend mode to "Multiply"
