So, I felt like doing a quicky tutorial. This was spurred by a large amount of caffeine and plenty of stress... which is a powerful force apparently.
I was reminded that many people get confused while painting rock surfaces, and while I would hardly say that I know the best way to do them, I can at least offer my personal method and the thought process behind said method.
Included are large screen captures of the painting process and the brushes used. As far as programs go, this was Photoshop 7, and done in just a little under 40 minutes.... which in itself may have been lengthy considering I'm watching TV at the same time. So this is hardly a time consuming process.
I also want to apologize for not refining the size of the font in comparison to the screen captures and the such. Many of you will need to scroll to see everything... but it was important of me to not leave anything out. Besides.... I was getting lazy.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Hopefully this helps at least somebody out there
EDIT: And I know I don't have to say this, but there's always somebody who needs to hear it...... FULL SIZE!
