i just got the stumpy pencil brush.
its pretty nice. not as smooth as other brushes. but NICE.
i also started just drawing the picture actually in the size canvas its suppose to be. for some reason every time i reduce an image in photoshop it blurs it no matter which option i choose. i hate having to use the sharpen filter to make it less blurry so this why is probably better. i can definitely see a difference.
