    Oh you already responded! I removed it cause later when I realised it was a bit of a stupid question, when i saw the rest of your work haha. Thanks for the inspiring videos and effort you put in this!

    Thanks a lot for this! Got kind of stuck with a piece, looking back after this video i noticed it can use a lot more details and i should clean up the linework before painting.. probably the reason why it looks so sloppy now. Thanks again!

    Nicholas,
    Thanks for taking the time to upload and narrate this! This is very helpful as a novice digi-painter. Do you have a resource that explains all the different layer type in photoshop and how they affect the painting? You mentioned them in the video, but it would be nice to have something to refference. Thanks

    Really well done man. The final piece is sick… So atmospheric.

    the ultimate opacity. In the same experiment as before, a brush with flow will increase the opacity of an area until it hits 100%, unless you limit the opacity of the brush as well.

    It makes no difference which you use, it’s entirely up to you.

    Opacity limits the absolute opacity of a brush stroke. For example, if (while holding down your stylus/mouse button) you pass over the same area twice with a 50% opacity brush, your opacity will never increase beyonh 50%.

    Flow, on the other hand, mimics the flow of an airbrush, or the rate at which paint is sprayed from your airbrush’s gun nozzle. A smaller flow decreases the rate at which “paint” is sprayed, but does not limit

    I noticed some artists used flow over opacity when in the early stages of a piece. Why change opacity instead of flow? To be honest, I don’t really know the difference between the two, anyway.
