I really want to improve my painting skills on photoshop, especially when it comes to painting faces and detail. So I chose a still from Pirates of the Caribbean to copy from and Im quite happy with the end result.
I felt like i needed to learn about using textures in photoshop and I tend to us only one type of brush. So i chose a still image from the film the last samurai. I wanted to try and capture the roughness of the forrest and the texture and pattern in the cloth used for the clothing.
