Hey! Such great artwork here. May I ask what settings you smudge on? I have some nice painterly brushes, but I can't get my settings right to achieve the kind of effect you seem to get with your smudging.. But I really like the results, so I'm determined to learn :)

I've had alot of trouble getting a hard clan look to my work, I think this method may well help me a great deal :)

thank you for posting it :)
I really loved watching your demos, Sean Parsons is one of my best friends and was nice enough to send me a link. Any chance you would consider doing a demo on creating custom brushes? From what I could see, you have quite the stash.

:+favlove: This is so cool. Seems like a fairly painless technique to use even with a mouse (this tablet I have isn't working for me). Thanks so much for making this!

whenever i use a 35% scattered smudge tool, it tends to bring in the white from around the selected area. Maybe I have the brush wrong. Any ideas?

You just have to be careful around the edges is all.

Thanks for sharing your smudge tool settings, i couldnt use this tool before cuz i never get the effect i want, with your setting works perfect :judge:

OK, that is super cool, John. I now have CS3.. custom smudge tool? Holy hell, I am trying that out!

And now I can download your fancy brushes!

Thanks for the video. Can't wait for one with narration.

I'd love to see one that explains how you do that neat grainy texture and such, I love your backgrounds :D

Haha! I have another one with sound up now, but I plan on doing others with a bit more meat.
