aliis - I always use one brush and that's just the round brush set at the hardest edge.  It's the brush settings that I change.  Depending on what I'm doing, outlining, coloring or what have you, I only toggle a few settings and they're always set to pen pressure (shape dynamics, other dynamics, and sometimes color dynamics).  I've not had luck with special brushes, but have been wanting to give a real go at them for a while.  Some day I plan to let loose and see what happens.

This was exactly what I was going to ask!
Great work. I love how you get it to look as if you're using markers. Very nice indeed!

Neat! I dig your style. Painting blows my mind as it is, digital painting seems even harder somehow. Nice work!

Thank you all for the feedback.  The comments are very much loved and appreciated  Cheesy

@aliis - ctrl-z is what I live by ~_^
I only have Photoshop, and I've only played around in Painter and felt completely like a fish out of water, but I've been using PS for almost ten years so it would make sense that would be what I'd be most comfortable with, wouldn't it?  I find that I can achieve many looks in PS with fiddling around with the layer settings.  To make a more watercolor or marker type of look I change the layer to something like screen or overlay, I honestly forget... I honestly just try out different things all the time to see what I end up with - and that's half the fun.  I'm still learning the program after all this time. 

I hope to go back to physical media in about six months or so (I'm breastfeeding and I worry about health hazards), so until then, lots of having fun with experimentation with the comfort of that ctrl-z sitting right there within reach.

Thanks again, everyone.
