There's a challenging threshold for beginners to cross as they learn to digital paint: dynamic brush strokes. It's a pretty linear process as you learn to make smooth, crisp, rendering with the basic three brushes. Taking the leap to active, dynamic, strokes can seem daunting. That's where the newest edition to the Ctrl+Paint store comes in: Dynamic Brushwork. Don't expect to flail about with stylus in hand - my goal was to provide a structured framework to achieve expressive results.
Since the technique is a bit abstract, I included three real-world examples to give the workflow context. Each one begins with a partially completed painting, and adds elements to the composition using the dynamic brushwork method. If you want to follow along, the PSD files are included!
