Hi Elio! i was just wondering where you got your brush that has a very realistic pencil-like texture you use for lines, or what settings it is and if you're willing to share
I rarely use digital brushes. The very realistic pencil is in fact, a very realistic pencil!
Many of the lines, textures, or painterly effects in my work come from the actual tool. On a separate piece of paper, I’ll make a bunch of scribbles or lay down some ink with a brush and toss them on the scanner. Once in Photoshop, I’ll play with layers (multiply, overlay, or color burn) to get the desired effect.
Recently my favorites are charcoal pencil (2B), worn-out sharpies, and dried up micron brush pens. The older the pen, the more interesting line quality you’ll get. Hey! That’s some kind of life metaphor isn’t it?
