Current brushes of choice
Assuming a document set to 600 DPI, I use:
- the stock Wild Light (Artistic) for inking;
- the stock Little Pine (Drawing) for underdrawings; and
- for erasing, take the stock Dry Ink (Inking) brush and remove the grain (set the Grain Source to the blank image from the Source Library).
I don’t mess with brush sizes and opacity unless I’m erasing.
I sometimes use the custom eraser brush to do a little colouring in, but I tend to use Photoshop to colour in final pieces because I am no good at picking colours and Photoshop’s fill layers are a god-send for me when it comes to changing and trying out colours.
