I've had tough week.... long hours at work, early mornings with my son and late Tv nights...
(how I manage to keep the house clean is even a mystery to me)
I enjoy a good cup of coffee and with that said...I also enjoy a good smoke(bad mommy :) ) So, for my next brushset : Real smoke brushes!
it will take me a while to complete this set so bare with me!
                         greetings from a choc- and beer loving Belgian named Helen :p
I need a smoke brush guys, and I need your help to find it. I need a smoke brush for Paint Tool Sai, not Photoshop. Use all your resources! Good luck and thank you!

Along the way, we focus on introducing the use of custom brushsets and the free transform tool, as well as some selection and masking techniques.



Here is a preview of the final effect I have for this tutorial:



Hope you enjoy it :)
