I thought about the new picture a while and came to the conclusion that it looked a hell of a lot
better. How come? I had the same idea behind them both... but the second picture became much more
detailed. Well it didn't take long to figure out - it must have been the brushes.
If I didn't have that soft blurry brush to do all the work for me I had to take care of that
part myself. I.e. I had to paint *every* little fluffy thing - nothing came for free like it did
with the soft brush.
As a bonus the picture became a lot more intense / atmospheric. At least I think
so. When you can see each individual brushstroke it brings out a much more raw
feeling. Granted, it led to more work but it also gave me more control over the picture -
that's a good thing ;-)
