So I finally got my computer set up , I am surprised it made it through the long plane ride. Everything seems to be in order so I did a quick painting test to make sure everything is good before I start taking on any freelance.
Anyways This took about 4 hours total in CS5 , it was all done with one chalky brush and some custom shape tools. It was only when I was about 90% done with that I began to add photo texture in the foreground.
I usually add photo textures in the middle or beginning , so this was a different way of approaching it. I will try more tests . Ill try to do some live stream tests to as well. Make sure everything is working on that end . Anyways , thanks for looking
