Is this done via Photoshop CC? 'Cause I don't have the option for "other dynamics"

I think it was done in CS3 because of the gray colored UI and also because i don't have that option in CS6 T^T

I love the way you set it in parts so as to teach. Will download and use the knowledge to start my photoshop tutorial. I illustrate by hand, so photoshop is my new medium goal. Thank you
