Hi, I'm trying to replicate something like this in photoshop at the moment, just a quick question: What brushes and sizes (I see they're just the bog standard) did you use roughly? Thanks, Sophie :)

Much gratitude for providing this. It is most helpful. Sometimes it takes seeing the same information presented in slightly different ways before you can really get it.
Delorya Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you for taking your time to make this tutorial for all who need it! It is always nice to see how other artists do it, and maybe learn some new tricks from each one of them.
