Art Advice Issue #6 - Dealing with Art Block
There's something really important to keep in mind: "Art Block" is a mental state, and, as such, it is temporary and you can overcome it! The term "art block" is misleading, because it makes you think it has one definition, when, in fact, it is a term used to refer to several quite different situations. Here, we'll talk about the different types of art block and how to overcome them.  TYPE 1 - I WANT TO DRAW, BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT! This is the easiest type of art block to deal with. DRAW ANYTHING! It doesn't have to be something spectacular; drawing an object on your desk or in your room will do; it will help you break out of this art bloc

Process videos like this are nice and all, but often I find myself wanting to know more about specific brush settings used at specific points than a broad overview of the entire process start to finish. Exact brush settings are the hardest thing to precisely gauge just by watching videos like this, but they're also the part that I believe is the most important to how one gets their final results. Or at least, it's the most important part once you have a grasp of the fundamentals and basic knowledge of the software itself. I'm by no means a master of all aspects of digital painting, but I feel like with what I currently know, more specifics on brush settings and tools used would be the most helpful additional knowledge, but process videos rarely go into that enough. I see illustrations that nailed the texture, that have blends that aren't too smooth or too rough, that have just the right interplay between brush strokes, and those subtle difference are what separate the good from the great. Those subtle differences are also very much based on exact brush settings, so without the brush settings themselves explained/included, knowing the rest of the overall process isn't enough to get those results. Unfortunately, I just can't seem to replicate that aspect of the process by guessing alone no matter how hard I try, but the brushes and tools used to make a piece are undoubtedly as important as any other teachable part of the process.

So to put it simply, I liked the video, but I'd like it even more if you went into more detail on the specific brushes and tools used at certain points. Explaining stuff like the lasso tool is good, but otherwise, exactly what you're doing for the bulk of the painting is the mystery I want to know about. In fact it's kind of funny because using the lasso tool to maintain hard edges or Color Balance for adjustments is stuff I already know about and use regularly, so speaking purely for myself here, there's more than enough explanation on some things but not enough on others. Perhaps you could share the brushes and point out specific ones when they're being used? It doesn't have to be listing every single thing used for every single stroke, just occasionally focusing on that stuff in depth would be enough.

I think it would be better to add the other hand onto the sword as I believe it will create a sort of "warrior's pride" strong impression. But this piece is already beautiful as it is, I love the feel you create in your pieces! :)
