Had it not been for the multicolored orbs in the right corner, and had there been more streaking, burning debris trails in the sky, I would have adored this painting even more.

Aye, there is a lot more I would've done with this drawing, but I did do it in a short time frame and to give it a before and after effect to another concept piece I did.

(Novel wasn't my favorite either, but I still enjoyed some parts of it)

Yep, some stuff was good, but mostly it was just overdone shit. I liked the other novels more and your image of the battle at Sigma Octanus looks way better than described one in the novel =)

Do you make your own custom brushes?

I do have a small collection of my own brushes, but for the most part, I've gotten mine from :iconconcept-on-mac:

Ah, cool. Do you think you use a lot of different brushes, or do you keep your selection limited and focused?

Sorry for the questions, but I actually have no friends in real life who do digital art...

I'll be sure to answer your question, but I'll find a way to approach it so that you totally understand what I'm talking about :D

I would say I use a quite a few brushes, yes, but for specific things. Like texture, plant, and cloud brushes get used pretty often. Cities and people- not so much. Depending on what style (or time constraints), I may leave the brushes almost unaltered. Most times though, I'll adjust it so it doesn't look so "copypasta".

Cool, thanks! I'm going to look into trying more brushes by other people, I think. Sometimes I'm think I'm making the piece harder than I need to with the weird, untrained way I go about Photoshop...

Do you watch Photoshop tutorials very often, or no?
