Along with what LizardDraws said this is very useful except for the fact I don't have Photoshop Cs5 or 6 But look on the bright side my parents are giving me 200$ to start it!!! Yay :happybounce: :happybounce:

This really helps! Unfortunately, I don't have photoshopcs5 or photoshopcs6... so I don't know how I would use this advice.

Rivah… do you have any tutorials that have nothing to do with PhotoshopCS5's awesome tools… because some of us are cheapskate teenagers who don't have the money or time to buy Photoshop...

Hahaha! Unfortunately, most of my drawing is done on Photoshop. 

I do have one tutorial for DA Muro, which is free for everyone.

I don't know how to use SAI, and although I'd kill to have it, it isn't available to download on mac computers. ^^; So I can't do a tutorial for it. :)

RiverSpirit456 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2015  Student General Artist
That would be great, but the only problem is illegal downloads of SAI on Macs normally don't have pen pressure, and that's a deal breaker for me. 

But if your version has pen pressure, then please do share. ^^;

I do the same with my trees! Except that I don't have Photoshop on my computer, only on my dads, and it's CS2, so it's a really old version.

thank you! I actually used to have very nice brushes on sai, but I was trying to download some more brushes and I accidently deleted my brushes (bristle and spread) and now I can only use a round brush ; _ ; because on sai there is a little area where you can change the shape of your brush
