Hello! This is a list of the brushes I use and how I use them! If you watch my videos, you can see that there are other brushes going around, but these are my main!
1. Texture pencil
This is my basic brush, I use it for everything. Sketching, inking, even coloring sometimes. It has a bit of texture and it makes things look a little bit fuzzy.
Pros: When your stroke is light, density lowers. This helps vary lineweight.
Cons: Becuase density lowers, you might need to go through some lines more than once. I sometimes duplicate the inking layer because it is a bit see through. It is also not a good brush for painting (blocking in colors) and it is not good for erasing, as it leaves a bit of residue behind.
Extra: I use it for painting when I need my brush to be strong and cover things
2. Fur line
This brush is mainly used for painting. It mixes a lot with the previous color on canvas, but if you press down more of the chosen color comes out. It works great for painting fur, but it is not good for erasing as it mixes everything so much.
3. Fur thic
This one I use for blending in the early stages because it does a great job mixing colors. If you press harder, it will blend less and paint more. Not good for erasing.
4. Paint hard
This is a regular textured brush with a little bit of blur. Makes painting with a new color on top more easy.
5. Paint soft
A mixer brush with little blur but a lot of texture. Helps bring everything together, specially when doing short fur. If you press on it, it will paint a little bit, but I almost never do.
Extra: phard + psoft
I first used the textured pencil to mark the borders, then the paint hard to mix a bit, and settle for the right colors in the right places. Then I softened it with the Paint Soft.
A basic watercolor brush. When you press hard on it, it fills with color, but when you go soft it blurs stuff. I use it for setting basic colors and light.
That's all for now! I hope this was helpful, and I will do another post with the other two brushes I sometimes use soon!
