THANK YOU for this tutorial! I haven't used it to paint Venom, or anything nearly so spectacular, but the brushes and sizes and resolutions listed have helped me finally overcome what has always stumbled me up with Wacom tablet drawing: how do draw an image that is high-resolution, yet have the brushes soft and sloppy enough to draw an initial sketch. I now realize it's okay to draw in low-res at first, and that's a MASSIVE help. The chalk brush is also a great tip--who'd have thought?
I paint in GIMP 2 with a Wacom Bamboo Touch tablet. I'll be checking out your other tutorials, and already have a picture I like enough to continue painting and eventually post. Avengers and Spider-Man are my big fan things right now, as well as Deadpool.
