Recommended: JPVine's free photoshop brushset for storyboard

I recently stumbled upon this free photoshop brush set from a remarkable artist, JPVine

They are very smooth, fast and natural media looking, I particularly enjoy the Inky brush as it is rough but smooth, try it!



for sketch dailies
the thick and thin shader feels very good and is a pleasure to use them!

These are some modest example of how I used them, but please be sure check his work for seeing them truly in action!

If you like them or know other storyboard brush set please comment below!

digital plein air

I am trying to do some more painting from life lately, for me it is the best way to learn how to compose value and color.

I am limiting these digital plen air paintings to 30 minute per piece for this is enough time to capture the idea behind what you are painting and also it forces myself on not thinking about details.
