A look through of Photoshops stock brushes and a test drive of how they work or don't work well.
- Before we can dive into the inking process,…you're going to want to find the digital brushes…that work for you and fit the style of your project.…So here I've got a example panel from my book.…And I'm going to use that just to try out…some different brushes.…I'm going to start with what Photoshop…actually comes with and has to offer.…You'll see here, under this little gear icon,…inside the brushes over here, you have a bunch of options.…Right now we're under Assorted Brushes.…Let's try Basic Brushes.…And you'll see, if you click "OK" here,…that will replace the gallery that we're looking at.…
You'll see we've got all different sizes…and types of marks here.…Let's see what some of these look like.…This one's obviously very fuzzy.…I could tell just by the thumbnail…that that's not going to be a good one…for what we're trying to do,…or what I'm trying to do, actually.…What I'm on the hunt for really,…funny enough, is something that looks…pretty natural and doesn't scream "digital,"…even though we're digitally inking, I want it to look…
