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.
8 HOURS~!!! WTF... YOU ARE THE GOD OF ILLUSTRATION! Not worthy! This tutorial was amazing!! I feel like everytime I read your tutorials, I level up 20-40% more illustration skills than I last had. lol I just skipped answering my phone so I could study and read this tutorial through. You are the coolest. Thanks for sharing this. *saves for later studies*
Amazing. One thing that I think I would have tried (if I could do that in the first place of course) would be to add some motion blur to the tongue making it look as if it's moving fast sweeping through the air!
