    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this question. But, I'm gonna ask it here. I was glancing at this image earlier and was noticing it look like it was done using a brush pattern, so I was curious could someone instruct me on how you would do this within photoshop with a brush? Or whats the best things to read on it if explaining it would be too much?

    Yes, I think it sounds like a great idea, so why not

    Been asking around and was told it probably uses a custom brush. You could try to mess around with brushes that you like or find custom ones online.

    Was also given an album to help show how it works. They suggested starting with a transparent background and then you could try following this from bottom to top.

    Hopefully that helps, I'm probably the worst person to be answering a photoshop question. If it doesn't help then hopefully someone more knowledgeable can give some better advice. Could also try seeing if the Art Lounge can answer it :blobhide

    In most cases this but I've seen some people do 175x250 I think. Basically if you can wear it as an avatar here it should be fine. No wider than 175 and no taller than 350.

    When looking back at mine, I think I should have worked more on the texture around her face and erase it, it looks a bit odd.

    Gin's entry is super edgy, stylish, and so sharpened. That extreme sharpening and dots look very good there. I like how her hair looks a bit different from the overall design.
