I've been meaning to check out a tutorial I found the other day for painting in photoshop for a while now. I don't think it turned out quite as interesting as I would have liked but it was definitely faster than my usual way of doing things. I really need to work on my contrast. All my values are usually to close together. Anyway, I think I'm ready to move on to something else. I'll probably fiddle with the technique a bit more in the future. I could see it being useful when time is a big issue.
