Texture & Shading in Photoshop – Illustration Tutorial

In this illustration tutorial, I show my simple method to add textures and shading to your design & illustration in Adobe Photoshop. I’ll be sharing the fastest way to get good at digital painting. This tutorial is suitable for those who are just starting out. Please leave a comment if you’d like me to explain anything I skimmed over.

I made this on a Wacom Cintiq, but you can do it with a mouse as well.
I face away from my microphone a few times during this video, thanks for putting up with the audio.
