You usually want to use a soft brush to get better fades, but don’t be afraid to harden the brush to do some intricate paintwork.

Use large brushes to make general sweeps, and then tighten the diameter for more precise tasks.

Artistic and wild brushes are great for creating rugged borders for your digital portraits and art.
