Its been 2 (edit 4) years since I rededicated myself to artmaking so I thought it time to start a new thread. Much older stuff can be found in my other thread. link
My education: a Bachelor of Fine Arts and certificate in 3d. Neither one helps much with my current work.
I use photoshop almost exclusively with brushes from m@, inetgrafx, and myself. The main ones are chalk and soft/hard rounds but when doing landscapes I use a lot of custom brushes; trees, leaves, ground textures, clouds, rock, etc. Those are invaluable for quality and time-saving.
I get inspiration from artists here on CA and elsewhere. My favourite concept artists are Ryan Church, Feng Zhu, Sparth, and Levi Hopkins.
