Hi! My work is far from flawless but thank you for being so sweet! <3
There is a lot of ways to emulate the pencil look in Photoshop, and I’m always trying new brushes and experimenting, so I’m not sure which one caught your attention. If you send me another message with it, I could be more specific ;)
That said, the truth is that I always end up using pretty basic ones that I gathered from artists I admire or even the round default one. With those, the key for a cool “pencil” look would be: Turn pressure opacity ON if the brush is opaque, play with the flow (try around 30%) and don’t be afraid of making fuzzy small brush strokes. Some texture in the pencil would work too.
If this is not enough for the look you want, there’s two more sophisticated resources that would do the trick:
I’ve used both of them and Kyle’s are pretty specific and sometimes too aggressive for my style, but very professional and well-done.
Thanks for your words again, hope it helped!
