I always feel like I post enough about art in general and I post a good bit of my work but not a whole lot of how I actually get to some of those paintings in detail.
SO! A “what about brushes post” Because I feel like a lot of it comes from my brush work and some fairly global art concepts that I use a lot.
So to start, I have a lot of brushes
A LOT of brushes, more than this.. (its all I could screen grab at the time…)
BUT I have a toolkit of a few small brushes that I use most of the time and for creating forms and general shapes.
My Core brushes make up figures A, and B. Outside of that is pretty much everything else, ie: figure C.
Core brushes create forms the way I want them to look, with a kind of snappy edge that I like. Some people might have totally different form making brushes, but those two brushes (sometimes a few more or less) Make forms the way those people want them too.
This idea of form making brushes is like traditional painting. The brush you use is going to give you a certain mark, just like if you use a tablet you hold in your hand to paint, vs your mouse, vs a cintiq (and all have their merits!)
