  1. Half the files are not available anymore and one you have to purchase. If the tutorial is out of date, then remove it. Frustrating!

    1. Sorry for the broken links JRitchie! As you probably know, free resources typically become unavailable over time. You're welcome to let us know in the comments if you would like us to update them.

      We try to make everything free, from the tutorial to the resources. Regarding the brushes, it's actually free. You'll need to create an account but the download is free.

      I know it's frustrating that free resources are a hassle to deal with, and that's the tradeoff with free vs paid resources. I'm sure you will be grateful for the free content so many people have put out there for you.

  2. Es ist sehr schwierig, solche Linien ohne Zeichentablett nur mit der Maus zu malen,
    das Tutorial ist total klasse und auch für mich als Noch-Anfänger super, nachzubauen.

    Danke vielmals !!!

  3. Sir, Please specify the setting for the shape dynamics as brush set darker in the middle and fade in the first and last corner, please also specify setting for shape dynamic of brush tool at the time of creating dripping effect.
