In your podcast, you talk about the Ohio Kentucky region, are you referencing Cincinnati by chance?

Nice tutorial. I'll definitely be checking out your website. I feel bad that I haven't been utilizing custom brushes as much as I should.

@04:57what hotkey do you use to make the brush smaller or larger?
Reply
:iconchrisoatley:
ChrisOatley Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2010
[ and ]

Then add shift to make the brush softer or more crisp.

hmm ok thx :D though i still find it annoying that the [ and ] hotkey doesnt work on my normal keyboard

Hmmm... That's weird. It could be your Photoshop preferences or your keyboard...

@04:57Saw your comment, thought I could possibly help, on a pc I know it's the two bracket keys next to the "p" on the keyboard. Should be the same if you're on a mac.

@08:28Thanks for the info. I wish I had time to explore the brushes more in PS.

@08:28Yeah - amazing how common this is among artists - even in the animation industry where we work with PS 40+ hours a week.

Thus the "Brush Tips" series. : )

@08:28My ex (an Adobe/PS instructor) tried for years to get me to explore brushes more (along with everything else). But I guess when you're in the thick of it, you just have to go with what you know to make the deadline and get the job done.

In one way, that can be a good thing, because it leads to a clear style based on how one works. But it limits the potential for growth, obviously.

Ahhhh . . . if I only had a clone.

@08:28Yeah well, the good news is that video is only 8 minutes long and it covers everything you need to know about Scatter/ Texture brushes.

8 minutes and DONE. Your Photoshop life revolutionized. : ) And I find that using those brushes has saved me hours upon hours in the long run.
