Trying on speedpainting with the help of (copyright free!) Computer Arts magazine's high resolution photoshop paintbrushes. I also used some of my own paintbrushes, and I painted out the figure at the end.
The magazine's a very useful one for graphic artists: it contains graphic software tutorials, tips and other articles on graphic art, and it comes with a cd with free material to work with, as well as works from artists at the cutting edge of modern graphic art - I highly recommend it!!
*** Lil' mistake: for those of you who read "Idn" yesterday, that was a mistake. Although Idn is also a great magazine, I really was talking about "Computer Arts". My bad! ^^;
