What You’ll Be Creating Realism is tricky, but if you can master it you’ll bring your art to a whole new level.

Because of its faded edges and its reliance on pen sensitivity, this brush is versatile enough to draw our sketches and paint flowy hair texture. Dry Brush The second brush I’ll need is a textural Dry Brush.
Today we’re giving you a chance to look behind the scenes here at Envato Tuts+ and meet the editors who bring you all these tutorials and courses.
