Quick tip for anyone just starting out. This eluded me for the longest time. I’d like to do more on the brush palette in the future. If anyone has a photoshop/painting related question or request, feel free to drop me an ask.
If anyone needs a comparison to traditional mediums, think about it like trying to draw something by pressing a stamp to a paper over and over again. Imagine you could only press the stamp to the steady beat of a song. That’s basically what brushes in photoshop are. The beat is the spacing setting.
