im sorry im not really sure how to explain it??? LOOK UP REFERENCES AND TRY TO SEE THE UNDERLYING SHAPES YEAH
Well, I think I can’t really give an appropriate opinion about painting with Photoshop because I don’t use it, I use Paint Tool SAI.
There are a couple of speedpaints   and tips     though that might really help you out!
About size, I guess it works the same on both programs - I always start with a small/medium image size (1170x1770 pixels / 10 x 15 cm in 300 dpi) so I can draw and paint a sketch without major concerns about the program taking too much to load and such. When I am satisfied with the sketch / layout, I make it bigger, which varies a lot, but I try to make it at least twice / trice the size so I can detail a lot and make small mistakes in the lineart / painting that will disappear when you shrink the image to post online or when you print it. My latest piece for example is 3072x6496 pixels / 26x55 cm, 300dpi originally.
Always set it to 300dpi for good printing quality,but if you only want to fool around with sketches or studies that you have no intention of printing, only posting or keeping it in digital format there is no problem in keeping it in a lower dpi.
If you are unsure about where you set this, it always shows up when you open a new canvas:
There you can set it on 300dpi or any other number you want.
I hope that helped somehow!
VOICES OF LIGHT: Joan of Arc and Saint Michael, The Archangel

restored and saved by a woman again”

Upon whom arms and armor

So I’m not sure what to call this
But I figured I’d at least try to impart my knowledge of (hank hill voice) weapons and weapon accessories.
