- [Voiceover] If you're a premium member, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files are laid out in folders organized by chapters. Inside each chapter, you'll find a layered pst file that will start you off in the same place I'll be beginning, so you can follow along with me. If you don't have access to the exercise files, don't worry. You can follow along from scratch with your own projects. Throughout this course, I'm going to be using Photoshop, working on a Wacom Cintiq drawing tablet and using some cool brushes I downloaded from the Photoshop brush wizard, Kyle T. Webster at www.kylebrush.com.
His brushes are very inexpensive and sometimes even donation only. I really love them, but if you have favorites of your own, those should work just as well. The important piece here is drawing and you'll be able to follow along easily no matter what brushes you choose to work with.
Method 2 shows us how to turn finished pencil artwork into clean, seemingly inked artwork, ready for color and ready for print—without any additional drawing.
