- I use brushes with hard or semi-hard edges (but mostly leaning toward the hard edge side). When I first tried to learn to pain digitally, I thought a brush with a really soft edge would help me achieve the sort of gradation I wanted. It didn't.
You know, this makes a lot of sense! I was flipping through some of my recent digital paintings and the ones I didn't used soft edges looks definitely better. And now I finally know why, lol.
Anyway, I just wanted to upvote on the people who mentioned ctrl-paint.com. That's definitely a nice place to learn. And I think you're doing great @Christina-Taylor-Brown. Just keep it up.
