PHOTOSHOP CUSTOM BRUSHES: EMBERS
I finalised the details of the art with the embers brush to bring out glints and air particles.
I use the stars brush to create a fully detailed cosmic sky for the alien world in this sci-fi scene.
HARD ROUND POINT
I use this brush to create the first black and white sketch and to quickly lay out the composition.
With this round point brush I create the line art that I used to define the details.
I also soften and harden the edges while painting using Alt + clickdragging up and down.
