the DD box says this "could be applied to any photomanipulation adventure", but I think it could also work for straight drawing/painting, too. Photomanipulators aren't the only ones who have issues with shadows and reflected light, after all. It's stuff I should think more about when drawing.
Congrats on the DD. ^_^

I've searched through the stock artists that you linked but I can't seem to find it. s:

In the glow tutorial, what brush is that? I can't seem to find it...

Veradaine Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
it's actually just a normal hard brush. you have to go into brush settings-->transfer, and make the settings match with what is shown.

It's a plain basic hard brush with pressure sensitivity - the benefits of a tablet :3

Shadows are easy for me. But that glowing thingie is something I have big problems with. My hands shakes a bit, so I never can make a normal line next ot a leg or something else. And I love that glowing effect. It just never works with me =(
