Is this done via Photoshop CC? 'Cause I don't have the option for "other dynamics"
jessaiduran's avatar
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 
sailoraya's avatar
In CS6 version the flow and opacity jitter are there but in a different place unlike previous versions ;).It's in Transfer :)

Some people begin the painting process with valuing in Grayscale then overlay paint over it...as I see you used direct painting? what is your technique called? which way do you think is better ?  by the way thanks for great toturial
