    friggin’ awesome. I love that background ! this one needs at least 3 favourites.

  • Thanks, Mr Chimp! If you’re interested I used my Wacom tablet to literally scribble a black layer, a red layer and a dark red layer. Then I take a smaller diameter eraser and scribble over each over these layers. Add a few layer masks, some creative duplication and a final contrast and brightness tweak and there you are.

    wow damm you so jealous, wish i had a tablet :( sighhhhh all my work needs to be done with the mouse and i hate it lol yet im a uni student and cant afford a tablet. anyways KEEP IT UP xD

  • I managed to score mine for $250 on eBay but don’t feel left out. I very rarely use it. So much can be still done without one quicker and easier.

    yer true but also some things can only be done using one… ie natural strokes…

  • Believe me; it takes a lot of practice before they resemble anything close to natural. I use it only in cases of convenience and for colouring since I don’t do any real world colouring.

  • That background really did turn out well didn’t it? Sorry, just admiring my own work. ;)
