Whoa, this is amazing! Seeing the drawing step-by-step makes it so much more encouraging for me; I almost feel like I could do it too! Unfortunately I probably can't…. but thank you for sharing! ^^

In the 2nd step I cannot make my brush look like that no matter how I change the settings. Tried it with many of the base presets, and it never gets like that :(

Did you untick the "transfer" box in the brush settings?
musicfanxd Aug 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I did. My brush goes all bumpy, not lean like that. It has thick black spots all around the line. I have the Hard Brush preset selected, and the only box I have ticked is Shape Dynamics. I can't get it right no matter what D:

 I have a never Photoshop version than you, CS5.1. Do you have any info on if it goes differently in this version?
Contrared Aug 14, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Turn off the Size Jitter in the Fade option and set the brush spacing to 1% (in the Brush Tip Shape menu) and that will surely do it! If it doesn't work, then I think the problem is with the brush itself. If changing the brush doesn't help, then please inbox me.
